What is the Human Rights Application UK?

The right to family and private life is known as Article 8 which acts as a basis of a majority of Human Rights Application. It is part of UK law through the Human Rights Act which continues to exist after Brexit. 

It is relatively beneficial to make a human right appeal where applicable because judicial review, in case of immigration refusal, is time-consuming, cumbersome, and expensive. It requires a lot of preparation and court approval to begin the procedure. On the other hand, if you challenge an immigration refusal by appealing on the grounds of a human right claim when you have legitimate human rights claim, you make the process little efficient. It takes less time, is cost-effective, and saves your energy.

What is the Eligibility to Apply for a Human Rights Application?

The eligibility criteria of the Human Rights Application revolves around Article 3 and Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). 

Article 3

According to Article 3, “No one shall be subjected to torture or inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.” It debars the British government from removing a person from the UK to a country where there is a real risk of the individual suffering from serious harm, including torture, inhuman or degrading treatment, or punishment. 

It involves situation like the following and more – 

  • If the individual is likely to suffer harsh imprisonment, torture, or persecution if they are returned to their home country
  • If the individual has a life-threatening illness and is receiving treatment in the UK which is not available in your home country
  • If the home country of the individual is a war zone and/or suffers from conditions of severe impoverishment

ECHR Article 8 - Right to a Private & Family Life

The European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) protects the human rights of people who reside within the countries belonging to the Council of Europe, irrespective of their race, religion, nationality, or membership of a particular social group. It has provided a list of separate articles to protect fundamental human rights.

Article 8 applications broadly prevent families to be deprived of private life and help in keeping the family individuals together. According to it, every individual living within the borders of the Council of Europe countries has a right to private and family life.

According to the law

  1. Everyone has the right to respect his private and family life, his home, and his correspondence.
  2. There shall be no interference by a public authority with the exercise of this right except such as is in accordance with the law and is necessary for a democratic society in the interests of national security, public safety, or the economic well-being of the country, for the prevention of disorder or crime, for the protection of health or morals, or for the protection of the rights and freedoms of others.
