British Child Cannot Save a Criminal from Deportation

Having a British child “not necessarily a weighty factor” in deportation cases

Patel (British citizen child – deportation) [2020] UKUT 45 (IAC)considers the importance of British citizenship held by children of people being deported from the UK.
The case concerned an appeal brought by Mr Patel, an Indian citizen, against a decision to deport him following a 2016 conviction for money laundering offences. He received a sentence of three and a half years in prison.
The First-tier Tribunal dismissed Mr Patel’s appeal against the Home Office decision to deport, finding that it was not “unduly harsh” on his British son, aged seven at the time of the appeal hearing, or on his British wife.
