Expert legal advice for visa applications
A mistake on your visa application will usually mean that it is rejected, so it is important to ensure that it is free from error. Our personal immigration lawyers have decades of experience in dealing with visa applications. We understand the Home Office process and can help you ensure that the complicated application is completed correctly and that all of the accompanying paperwork is included.
We will work proactively on your behalf to make the application without delay and we will be available to speak to you throughout the matter to keep you updated as to progress and to answer any questions you may have.
Applying for a UK spouse, partner or family visa
If your spouse or partner is entitled to live in the UK permanently, you can apply to live with them if you are married, engaged or in a civil partnership. This also extends to unmarried partners who have lived together for at least two years.
If your spouse or partner lives in the UK under a visa, you may still be able to apply as their dependant.
We will go through the eligibility criteria with you to ensure that your application includes all of the necessary information and supporting documents, to include evidence of your spouse, partner or family member’s income in the UK, which must meet a specified threshold.
If you are seeking a visa because you are dependent on your family member who lives in the UK, we will make sure that you meet the Home Office requirements and that you demonstrate this within your application.
