UK Visas for Partners and Children

If you are a British citizen or living in the UK with indefinite leave to remain, we can help you obtain a visa for your partner and children to join you in the UK if they are based overseas or assist with an application for them to remain with you if they are already living in the UK.

If you are not married or in a civil partnership but have been living with your partner for at least two years, the Home Office will recognise your relationship for the purposes of issuing a visa.

Specific financial requirements that you must satisfy were introduced by the Home Office in July 2012. Failure to satisfy the requirements can lead to your application being refused. It is not uncommon for clients to come to us for assistance having first received a refusal on their application for what may appear to be minor omissions in their application. We have acquired significant knowledge and experience of the precise documents the Home Office will need to meet their requirements and we will work with you to make sure these are provided.

Aside from the financial aspect we will ensure all aspects of the visa requirements are met and presented in such a manner that the application has the best possible prospect of being approved.

We understand that the visa application process has the potential to be a stressful time for all those involved. Therefore, we will explain the visa process in a straightforward and comprehensible manner from the outset, which will allow you to know exactly what will be required in order for your partner’s visa application to be approved. We will also be on hand throughout the process to respond to any queries or concerns that you may have.
