Our solicitors understand the hardship that visa difficulties can place on family life and how important it is for families separated by border controls to be reunited.

There are options for non-British spouses, civil partners, and unmarried partners to apply to join or remain with their partner in the UK. A successful application will depend on an applicant’s ability to meet the legal requirements associated with their spouse visa or partner visa. The legal requirements for a spouse visa or partner visa (of a person who is British or settled in the UK) are numerous but can be found largely contained within Appendix FM of the Immigration Rules. It is crucial that an applicant for a spouse visa or a partner visa for the UK, understands not only the legal requirements for their application, but also provides specified documents as evidence.
A successful applicant for a spouse visa or partner visa under Appendix FM of the Immigration Rules, will usually need to show that their partner is either a British citizen in the UK, present and settled in the UK, in the UK with refugee leave or with humanitarian protection, or be in the UK with limited leave under Appendix EU. There are some other options for spouse visas or partner visas to be applied for where a spouse is returning to the UK with their non-British partner. In all cases, the applicant and their partner in a spouse visa or partner visa, must be over the age of 18, demonstrate that their relationship is ‘genuine and subsisting’, and satisfy the other legal requirements (including suitability, English language, TB, accommodation, and financial requirements).
All legal requirements associated with a spouse visa or partner visa in the UK, must be carefully evidenced with specified documents and many applicants have their applications for a UK spouse or partner visa rejected, on account of not providing the specified evidential documents. The rules around specified documents for UK spouse or partner visas can be complex and our team are highly experienced in navigated these and advising clients.
