Pre-Action Protocol Letter, Scotland

Get in touch

A pre-action protocol letter is a letter, written to the Home Office, in an attempt to resolve any disputes before court action takes place.

It is often necessary to attempt to resolve disputes before court proceedings begin. These are set out in the Civil Procedures Rules.

As experienced immigration law solicitors, the team at Jones Whyte will be able to write up a pre-action protocol letter.

What is in a pre-action protocol letter

The pre-action protocol letter contains information about the key matters which will be raised. It also shows the legal grounds for the action, and why the original Home Office decision was unlawful.

Once the letter has been lodged, the Home Office has 14 days to respond. If they don’t respond at this time, you can seek a Judicial Review.

Immigration law is a complex area, so it makes sense to work with experienced professionals if you disagree with a Home Office decision about visa law.
