Immigration pracitioners need to be aware of family law and human rights jurisprudence protecting the right to enjoy family life. Putting Children First: A Guide for Immigration Practitioners fulfils that need. It explores the law relating to the family and how this is applied in the context of immigration.

The intricacies of immigration and nationality laws mean that members of one family can find themselves with different immigration statuses or entitlements to British nationality. Individuals may face the prospect of being separated - sometimes indefinitely - from partners or children as a result of immigration decisions. The stress of drawn out immigration proceedings can lead to family breakdown.

Containing case studies highlighting points of interest and importance, Putting Children First provides immigration practitioners and advisers with the tools they need to argue family law issues successfully. Written in clear, non-technical language, this new title contains references to the Children Act 1989, various immigration acts including the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 and Immigration Rules as well as to other non-statutory material. It provides guidance on how to take instructions from children and to instruct relevant experts.
