We assist clients with all different types of immigration matters, including family visas.
A recent client of ours requested that we assist with bringing her partner to the UK from Pakistan whilst she was settled in the UK with their first child on the way. We established that they met the requirements through an assessment of their relationship background, her financial and housing situation in the UK and whether there were any character or immigration history issues.
We then sent the client a comprehensive and tailored document checklist whilst we prepared the online application form, appendix 2 vaf4a financial requirement form and SU07 form for the client and considered all evidence on receipt. We calculated that she would meet the financial requirement of £18,600 gross annual income category A if she applied during a specific time frame to meet the 6 months in employment and before she needed to go on maternity leave. We then drafted representations to the Home Office on our client’s behalf setting out the relevant immigration rules and how our client met each one with reference to her supporting evidence and included relevant article 8 case law.
After submission of the online application, we advised that our client’s partner could request his Passport to be retained throughout the decision process in order to visit his partner and new-born child in the UK. We issued him with a letter to present at the border so that he would not encounter any difficulties upon entry if border control questioned why he was entering whilst awaiting an entry clearance application.
Whilst awaiting the decision, the pandemic began and unfortunately, our client’s decision was delayed because of this. We contacted the Home Office on their behalf to attempt to secure a timescale for the decision and prepared a Pre-Action protocol letter on their behalf to secure a decision promptly. This was successful and our client’s partner was issued entry clearance to the UK for a period of 2.5 years on the five-year route to settlement to settle in the UK with his partner and child.
