Asylum Support Tribunal decision of Judge Smith on 4 October 2005.
Refusal of Section 95 support. Meaning of Section 94(5) of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 discussed. The mere existence at any point in time of a dependant child does not operate to automatically change the status of a failed asylum seeker. Section 94(5) does not entitle those who are no longer asylum seekers to qualify for support unless they had a dependant child at the time when they lost their asylum seeking status.
