Detention and Bail

Unfortunately, you may find that you, a relative or a friend has been detained on an immigration issue. What usually happens is that an immigration officer advises you of the fact that you are being detained as an illegal immigrant. You may find yourself in that position if you have entered the UK illegally or you have stayed beyond the period of leave authorised by an immigration official and you have failed to regularise your stay There are a number of things Andrew Williams Solicitors can do to help you.


However, most of the options available to you will ultimately depend on your individual circumstances. In most cases we will be entitled to make an application to a Chief Immigration Officer for Temporary Admission or what is commonly called CIO Bail (Chief Immigration Officer Bail). The success of an application for Temporary Admission or bail depends on a number of factors which are not easy to generalise about because each person's situation is likely to be different. If you do not want to return home because you believe you would be mistreated then you may need to claim asylum (see asylum advice).


If you want to make an application for bail then you will need an address where you can stay once released. In general, you may also need one (usually two) sureties, people willing ensure that if released you will comply with any conditions attached to bail. The sureties must be prepared to forfeit money if you fail to comply with the conditions of bail or absconds.


If there is no-one immediately available to act as a surety, it is possible to apply for bail without sureties, though this can reduce the chances of release for some detainees. There are organisations, such as The Bail Circle or Bail for Immigration Detainees, which can sometimes assist in finding sureties for detainees.
