R (on the application of Ali) v The Secretary of State for the Home Department [2015] EWHC 7 (Admin)

After eventually succeeding in an asylum claim, the Somalian C was granted leave to remain for five years. The C’s husband and her six children were British Citizens and she challenged her grant of limited leave, as it would be in the best interests of her children for her to be granted indefinite leave in line with their status.  In the absence of the C being able to identify any disadvantage to her children arising out of the grant to her of only limited leave, it was held that the R had discharged her duty under Section 55 of the 2009 Act by granting the C limited leave to remain pursuant to the staged settlement policy. Judicial Review refused.
