At Curzon Green we offer a variety of services including applying for European Economic Area (EEA) family permits.
In order to apply for an EEA family permit to come to the UK you must be outside the EEA and the family member or ‘extended’ family member of an EEA or Swiss national. (Please note this excludes UK nationals).
There are other ways you may be eligible, for example:
With a ‘derivative right of residence’. This is when you are the carer of someone who has the right to be in the UK, the carer’s child, or the child of an EEA national who previously worked in the UK;
If you can make a ‘Surinder Singh’ application after living in another EEA country with a British family member; or
With a ‘retained right of residence’. This is when you have the right to stay in the UK as the family member of an EEA national who has died, left the UK or is no longer your spouse or civil partner.
In order to be eligible for the above categories you must be outside the UK.
An EEA family permit is valid for 6 months. You can leave and enter the UK as many times as you need within that time. You must apply for a residence card if you are the ‘extended’ family member of an EEA national and want to stay in the UK after your EEA family permit has expired.
You can contact our offices today for up to date advice on the new ‘settled’ and ‘pre-settled’ statuses in the UK or see further government updates at: https://www.gov.uk/uk-residence-eu-citizens
We charge a fixed fee of £1,200 plus VAT for representing you in your application for an EEA Residence card or Family Permit. This is a comprehensive service for full representation in your matter. Please note that we also offer consultancy
and document checking services as an alternative to full representation.
We believe a fixed fee makes it easier for you to budget for your application and therefore will not vary from this price unless we feel that your application will require significantly more work than a standard application. In this event, we will explain why in advance of work beginning on your matter.
This fee includes:
Taking instructions and providing advice on your matter;
Considering the documents that you provide us with;
Preparing and submitting an application on your behalf;
Drafting legal representations to support your application;
Liaising with the Home Office as and when necessary until a decision is reached on your application.
This fee does not cover Home Office fees, interpreters, travel expenses, expert reports or attending interviews in relation to your matter.
This fee covers work up until a decision is reached on your application but where further advice or work is required thereafter, additional fees will be chargeable. You will always be advised of any additional charges before we carry out work on your behalf.
Once we receive the appropriate documents from you, we will submit your application promptly and generally within 10 days of receipt of these. We will take note of your preferences when it comes to application submission and try to work to with you to achieve your desired outcome.
We are unable to guarantee how long the Home Office will take to decide on your application, although unnecessary delays that exceed 6 months may be unlawful in your matter. You can read current Home Office processing times guidance here:
