This is new information/evidence you or your lawyer send to the Home Office about why you must stay in the UK. The Home Office then decides if your new information/evidence is a ‘fresh claim’.
If a lawyer is preparing your further submissions, show them the Directions Notice as soon as possible. Ask if they can write answers to the Judge’s instructions for you.
If you have not yet sent your further submissions to the Home Office, the Judge usually wants to see:
1. Describe what you have done to get your further submissions ready.
2. Explain any reasons which delayed you sending them to the Home Office. For example, was it difficult for you to find a lawyer or get your new evidence?
3. Send the Judge proof of when your lawyer started helping you. Also send proof of how and when you got your new evidence.
4. Clearly explain what your further submissions are about and why this information/evidence is new. Sending decisions about your past asylum claim or further submissions is a good way of showing this.
5. If the Home Office has rejected further submissions from you more than once before, the Judge will want a very clear explanation about why your situation has changed since the last asylum refusal you received.
