*EV (Philippines) and others v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Leave to remain. The appellants were a family from the Philippines whose application for indefinite leave to remain in the United Kingdom had been rejected. The First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) found that, although it was in the children's best interests to continue their education in the UK, removal would be proportionate to the legitimate aim of immigration control. The Upper Tribunal upheld that decision. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the family's appeal, issued guidance on how tribunals were to approach the proportionality exercise where it had concluded that continuing education in the UK would be in the best interests of the children.
