Section 120 Notice uk

What is a Section 120 Notice?

Section 120 Notice is also known as ‘one stop notice’ provided by the Secretary of State in relation to an individual’s deportation. The ‘one stop notice’ is an opportunity to provide grounds which may not have been submitted in a previous application. The grounds submitted on a Section 120 Notice are vital as they can potentially trigger a right of appeal if they are strong enough to support your case.

I have received a Section 120 Notice, what shall i do?

Section 120 Notice urges you  to raise further grounds for the grant of leave to remain which are outside the scope of their original application. If you have received a notice:

  • Consult with an immigration lawyer. If you have a immigration lawyer already and are still unsure what to include, it may be worth getting a second opinion on what to include in your Section 120 Notice.
  • Explain all the facts and circumstances which you have not already mentioned.It is important to include all your reasons or grounds for wishing to stay in the UK in this application. Failure to include anything and you may lose any right of appeal you may otherwise have qualified for.
