Hurlingham Law advises on all types of family applications ranging from partner / spouse applications, dependant visas and general family immigration. As a rule of thumb, to apply as a partner / spouse, you and your partner both need to be 18 or over.
Your partner must also be one of the following:
– A British Citizen
– Settled in the UK (Permanent Residency or “Indefinite Leave to Remain”)
– Refugee status or humanitarian protection in the UK
In addition to the above, you and your partner must intend to live together permanently in the UK after you apply and have proof of your civil partnership or marriage or proof that you have been living together for at least 2 years. If applying as a fiancé/e then you will be issued a 6 month visa during which time you will need to enter into marriage or civil partnership in order to extend your visa. There are also other requirements to be met: knowledge of English and financial requirements.
Hurlingham Law will be able to advise on all aspects of your families case. Spouse visas are valid initially for 2.5 years after which we can apply for a further 2.5 years, followed by settlement (“indefinite leave to remain“) and British Citizenship. We also offer fast track processing through the Super Priority Service, subject to Home Office availability.
