Immigration Seminar One 2008 (CPD Accredited)

‘Immigration Update: Overcoming the Maintenance/Accommodation Restrictions of the Immigration Rules.’


Date: May 10th 2008


This seminar considered a range of topical and practical issues concerning Immigration law.

There has been a spate of restrictive decisions recently on the maintenance and accommodation requirements under various Immigration Rules. In particular, third party support is being excluded as a basis of Paragraph 281 and Paragraph 297 entry clearance applications.


There are several strategies and processes, including the use of case-specific covenants, that may still allow the rules to be met by UK settled sponsors (especially those who are disabled/unemployed and non-income earning), which Chambers speakers addressed at this seminar.


The seminar included some case studies, with an opportunity for questions and answers.
