Julian Norman in successful Upper Tier Tribunal appeal of “ten year rule”

24 July 2019

Julian Norman, instructed by Sterling Law Associates, represented the Appellant in relation to an appeal brought under paragraph 276B (the "ten year rule"). The Appellant had a gap in his lawful residence from June - July 2007, after which he had been granted leave to remain, which disqualified him from showing continuous lawful residence at the date of his application. However by the date of the first appeal hearing in 2018, that no longer applied. The Upper Tribunal accepted that he was entitled to rely on the later date and that the First Tier Tribunal's initial decision had to be set aside. he matter was remitted to the First Tier Tribunal where it was allowed.
