Immigration ISW Reports
Independent immigration Reports
I have several years’ experience writing immigration reports and can be instructed by human rights and immigration solicitors to complete an independent social work report that explores the effects that deportation might have upon family members where a notice of deportation is being appealed on human rights grounds.
I am an experienced adult and children’s Social Worker and have undertaken training to achieve best evidence when interviewing children and can draw on my skills as a qualified parenting assessor. Due to my experience of working across adult and children’s services, I am well placed to undertake reports that examine the effects of families being separated. I can write independent reports that examine the effects of deportation upon the client and their family including welfare reports for children.
Such times can be distressing not only for the person concerned, but also their families including children. During my interviews with children, I am sensitive to their needs whilst recognising the views of the children are often critical to my report and the outcome of the appeal. I use recent research and social work theories to help explore the effects that separation will have upon children.
Sometimes, the person being assessed is a caregiver or plays a significant role in the care of a vulnerable adult. If this is the case, I can report on the significance of the care they provide and explore how much state-funding is being saved by their unpaid caregiving. If necessary, I can complete a care needs assessment to evidence the care needs of the vulnerable person and whether they would be eligible for state funding.
Most of my immigration reports are Legal Aid Agency (LAA) funded and I charge a reduced rate to reflect LAA accepted rates. I aim to file my reports within 4 weeks of instruction but can complete them sooner if required or you have a hearing approaching that can’t be adjourned.
