Child Visas

A non-British child who has family in the UK may be eligible to apply to come to the UK to join their family if they fall within one of the designated routes within the Immigration Rules. Our team understands how important visas for children can be for the overall wellbeing of families in the UK.

Provision for visas for children is made within the Immigration Rules within Part 8 of the Immigration Rules and Appendix FM of the Immigration rules. There are other routes available for child visas, which are attached to distinct visa categories. 

It is important to understand that child visas for the UK may be available where a parent is also applying for leave to enter or where they already have existing limited leave to remain in the UK, but they also may be available where a parent is settled in the UK and they have no other person to care for them in their country of origin. 

There are legal requirements associated with child visas for the UK and these may include those associated with familial relationship, age, finances, consent and who else may be available to care for the child applying for a child visa. Our team has a vast array of experience in dealing with UK visas for children and can help applicants navigate the complex legal requirements associated with child visas. Our firm offers full representation and consultancy services relating to visas for children wanting to enter or remain in the UK.

UK Child Visas – Full Representation

Full representation is a comprehensive service, that allows our firm to become your legal representatives and to represent you in all matters concerning your UK child visa. This includes preparing the appropriate forms and liaising with UKVI or the Home Office on your behalf.

If you decided that full representation was the appropriate service for you and your family, we would take detailed instructions from you, issue a client care letter and other appropriate paperwork to you, plan works according to what we consider to be your best interests, advise you of any documents or information that we may need to prepare the case efficiently and lodge your child visa application for you. We would ensure that you are updated on any key developments on your matter and remain as your legal representatives until a decision is reached on your child visa for the UK.

We would endeavour to be on hand throughout the child visa application process to guide you and answer any questions you might have about the process. Once the child visa matter has been concluded, we would send you a closing letter outlining any items that we think you may wish to know moving forwards. 

Full representation may not be suitable for all clients, but our experience is that for those who have utilised this service with us, they have found it to be very helpful indeed. We would encourage readers to consider the wide range of positive reviews which are available on the internet, relating to our services.

We are proud to be able to offer a fixed fee for full representation in your application for a child visa for the UK. Many of our clients find this to be useful in managing their costs and expectations. Although the below pricing information provides a cost range, you will always be given a precise cost on instruction and this will be detailed in your client care letter. The reason that we provide a cost range is because cases can vary considerably according to their complexity. 

UKVI (Usual) Fee: £1523 plus £624 per year for NHS Health Surcharge (plus conversion fees and those for using biometric submission centres and any additional services that an applicant opts for) Note that settlement applications are likely to cost £2389 and attract no NHS Health Surcharge; &
