Below are some frequent questions regarding human rights claims.
What are the eligibility requirements for a Spouse/Civil Partnership Visa?
To be eligible for a Spouse/Civil Partnership Visa, you must be over 18 years old and one of you must be a British Citizen or have Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR), Pre-Settled Status, or have been granted refugee status or humanitarian protection in the UK.
You will need to prove the following:
Your marriage is recognised in the UK.
You and your spouse/partner intend to live together.
Your relationship is genuine.
You can support yourselves and any dependents.
The person moving to the UK has a good knowledge of English.
How long can I stay in the UK on a Spouse/Civil Partnership Visa?
You can stay in the UK for 2 years and 9 months and your visa can be extended for 2 years and six months. After this time, if you meet the eligibility requirements, you can apply for Settlement (ILR). Our Immigration Law Solicitors can advise you throughout the life of your visa to ensure that you are in a positive position to apply for Settlement once your visa extension expires.
How do I prove my marriage/civil partnership is genuine?
It is best to present as much evidence as possible to prove your relationship is genuine.
For example, you could include the following in your application:
Your Marriage or Civil Partnership Certificate.
A tenancy agreement or details about your mortgage and any other bills that show that you live together.
Bank statements or car loan agreements that show your joint address.
A letter from your doctor or dentist.
Evidence of Skype, social media, emails, or WhatsApp communications that show you keep in touch when you are separated.
Letters from friends, family members, and employers stating that you are in a genuine relationship.
We can provide extensive advice on the type of supporting documents you can include to increase the chances of your application being successful.

You and your spouse/partner must prove you have a combined income of £18,600. If you have children, you will need to have additional funds available, namely:
£3,800 a year for your first child
£2,400 a year for each child you have after your first child
