    Planning Your Family’s Future Together in the UK: Expert Advice to Get Your Spouse Visa

    Applying for a UK visa can be a complex process, especially when it comes to family visas. The physical separation from your partner emotionally impacts you and maintains challenges on your way to build a strong family foundation.

    Sterling Law, your London-based immigration lawyers acknowledge the significance of family reunification. We are committed to assisting you in navigating the complexities of the UK Spouse visa process and achieving your goal of being coupling with your loved one.

    Recently, our client approached our team after unfortanute experience of multiple visa application refusals. The applicant, a European national, is married to a resident of the United Kingdom. The couple had previously registered their marriage outside the UK and subsequently applied for a visa to enable the applicant to reside with the spouse in the UK.

    The clients initially submitted an application independently under the EU Settlement Scheme. Unfortunately, this application was unsuccessful as they did not meet the scheme’s eligibility criteria. The client was unaware of the specific requirements and grounds for application under this scheme, resulting in a period of unnecessary waiting and the eventual refusal.

    Having identified the mistake in their initial application, the couple resubmitted a corrected version. Unfortunately, this subsequent application was also refused, although on different grounds. The application lacked thorough preparation, and the required documents were not presented in the appropriate format.

    Upon engaging our firm, we undertook a comprehensive consultation to determine the issues and errors present in the couple’s prior applications. Significantly, the applicant informed us of her pregnancy, which added a new layer of complexity. This news underscored the urgency of getting a positive entry clearance decision to facilitate the partner’s support and presence in our client’s daily life. Furthermore, a six-month period had elapsed since the client’s initial application denial.

    Our approach involved advising the client on the necessary documents, preparing an application with detailed information, and drafting a comprehensive cover letter, outlining clear explanations of the relevant immigration rules demonstrating how each category applied directly to the client’s unique circumstances.

    Thanks to our detailed and professional handling of the case, the client ultimately received a positive decision.

    While general information on visa applications is widely available, navigating the complexities of immigration law can be challenging. To avoid unnecessary stress and potential refusals, we recommend seeking professional advice. Our team is here to help you through every step of the process.

    Ensuring positive results involved the following steps:

    1. Select the correct application form
    2. Ensure proper immigration status whether you are applying from within or outside the UK
    3. Fulfil the English language requirement through the necessary test results or qualifications
    4. Demonstrate a genuine and subsisting relationship
    5. Satisfy minimum income and maintenance standards
    6. Address any human rights considerations
    7. Pay the correct application fee
    8. Collect all necessary supporting documents

    Missing a single requirement or piece of evidence can result in your application being refused. If you require assistance, our team at the Legal 500-nominated firm is here to help. We are committed to offering expert guidance and ensuring a successful outcome for our clients.
