Another Spouse Visa Grant!

The Home Office requirements for applications under Appendix FM seem quite simple on the face of it, but this extensive document sets out a number of rules that may easily be overlooked. 

Appendix FM is for applications to enter or remain in the UK on the basis of their family life. 

It sets out the legal requirements that applicants must meet to be eligible and granted permission to enter or remain under this route. It also sets out the rules that the Home Office must follow when deciding such applications. 

You can only apply for a family-based visa under Appendix FM if you are related to or in a relationship with either:

  • A British citizen, or
  • A person settled in the UK, or
  • A person in the UK with limited leave as a refugee or someone granted humanitarian protection. 

Family applications may be made by any member of the family:

  • Spouse
  • Partner
  • Parent
  • Child
  • Fiancé
  • Adult Dependant
  • Victim of Domestic Violence.
  • There are slightly differing criteria for each of the above relations. 

We at Shawstone Associates can assist you with such applications on a PRIVATE or LEGAL AID basis. For more information on whether you are eligible for Legal Aid, please contact us.
