It is often the case that following the conviction of a foreign national for a crime in the United Kingdom the Secretary of State will seek to deport that person. It is usually only possible to challenge a decision to deport someone on the basis the deportation / removal would be a breach of their Human Rights or would be a breach of the Refugee Convention.
The Home Office on most occasions, in writing do inform the convicted foreign nationals whilst they are still serving their prison sentence with a formal decision and appeal forms. There is a strict time-limit for responding. This is a very complex area and legal representation is essential.
