I have some general questions about about appeal form.

1. If application is refused and dependents were also included in application, should seperate appeal forms be filled for each dependent ( along with main applicant ). OR just one form filled by applicant would be enough?

2. What is ground of appeal, for example if appealant thinks that immigration rule was incorrectly applied, in this case i guess grounds will be on immigration rule? can Human rights be also a GROUND alongwith 'immigration rule'?

3. Is it important to explain ground of appeal in detail when filling form (explaining them the reasons/logic why immigration rule seems to be incorrectly applied), or is it something thats discussed during the hearing.

4. Can UKBA change their decision if explanation is strong in the IAFT1 form/attachments, and matter can be resolved before reaching judge.

5. What is re-consideration of application.


PS: my case is ILR.

You should do a form per person, unless you can fit all details on the same form. 

You can appeal on the grounds that the decision is contrary to the immigration rules and on the grounds that it breaches human rights. 

You should detail your grounds of appeal as otherwise, if the grounds are not addressed, the appeal can be thrown out.

The UKBA can reconsider their decision on the basis of the appeal form, but seldom do.

If Appealing you may want to seek professional assistance.... So often I have seen lost Appeals which could have been so different if the Grounds of Appeal had been better. Many things in life can be a DIY job but attempting to stay in the UK by representing yourself at an Appeal is not one of them.

What would be the explanation in 'ground of appeal' for dependents form. Would it be exact copy of main applicant?

Can you request UKBA directly to re-consider their decision before submitting appeal form. Is it something common or do people just rely on appeal (using IAFT1 form).

Thanks for your quick reply.

Reconsideration of a refusal is usually only resisted when there is no right of appeal. If you have the right of appeal, you should use it.

Your other question is not possible to answer without knowing the reasons for refusal.

I totally agree with Anthony; you should consider getting legal assistance with this appeal.

thanks for your valuable advice, indeed I will go with legal assistance.

what makes me worried is that its xmas season ( you know people are away ), and If I cant find a suitable legal professional (nearby my location) in 10 business days, then I was wondering if more details can be submitted by a legal person later after 10 days limit.

Two legal professioanls have been assisting you right here, and I am sure that either of us could help with an appeal. There is no need to be geographically close by.
