Human Rights law is a different body of law from British immigration law or European free movement law. It emerged from the European Convention on Human Rights, which is an EEA treaty to which the UK is subject.

We have observed that many applications have been made by families who want to remain in the UK under Article 8 of the European Convention of Human Rights; many of them are overstayers and are in breach of Immigration laws.  Article 8 states that it is the right of an individual to have a private and family life, free from state interference.  An Article 8 Application may help prevent families from being separated, and deprived of private life. In genuine cases, the Home Office considers Human Rights Applications carefully and may issue a valid visa.
