Our Work | Couples & Families
We are proud of our history of assisting couples and families to live together in the UK. Whether you are the partner of a British citizen, a settled person, an EU national, or an individual with temporary leave, we can advise on applications on the basis of your relationship. The leading directories praise our work in family immigration.
Partners of British citizens and settled persons have to deal with increasingly complex rules when making applications to come to or stay in the UK. Even when all these requirements are met, applications can be refused simply because of a missing document. We will help you navigate the rules and, if you cannot meet all the requirements, we will explore other available options with you. For example, you may be able to apply on the basis of your parental relationship with a child in the UK, or as a result of very significant difficulties to your family life continuing overseas.
We assist partners in same and opposite sex relationships, partners who are married or unmarried, partners who are in the UK and those outside, partners with an exemplary immigration history and partners who have made mistakes in the past.
We have experience with complex applications from those relying on a range of financial sources, including from self-employment, non-salaried employment and non-income financial sources. We also have experience with applications from overstayers. We also have significant expertise with assisting same-sex couples who cannot live abroad because their rights and liberties would not be respected.
We are also aware that, sadly, some individuals find themselves in abusive relationships which they are afraid to leave because of their immigration status. We can assist with applications on the basis of domestic violence, and have expertise in applications made by stranded spouses.
We regularly engage with policy makers and provide training to other lawyers and legal advisors on family based immigration applications.
We understand, and celebrate, that love crosses borders, cultures, and ages. Whatever your circumstances, we can advise.
