Judge criticises errors in Haywards Heath dad deportation case.


 A judge said she was “concerned” about the number of errors made by the Home Office who are trying to deport a father-of-three.

    1. There have been a lot of those I'm afraid! Some of the couples in that situation are still divided, some have moved to the USA, some are seeking a resolution through European free movement, some have been reunited by ultimately meeting the income requirement.
