Deportation of foreign national offenders has been a key aspect of the government’s immigration policy in recent years. It splits families, often despite many years’ residence in the UK, and the legal odds are very clearly stacked against individuals facing deportation. In this book, aimed at legal practitioners but also accessible to those affected by deportation processes, we examine the law, rules and guidance which has built up rapidly around this difficult subject.


Gary McIndoe is founder and managing director of Latitude Law Solicitors. He has over 30 years’ experience in immigration practice, across both publicly-funded and private sectors, and is a former director of Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit. Gary is a trustee of Manchester-based refugee advocacy organisation RAPAR, and Chair of the Electronic Immigration Network, a charity providing online information in the field of immigration and asylum. He is listed as a leading individual by Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500.

Gemma Tracey is an associate at Latitude Law, where she has worked since it formed in 2007. She has particular expertise in preparing family applications, deportation appeals, nationality applications and sponsor licensing.
