Our client is a national of Sri Lanka who resides in Huddersfield and was in the UK with leave to remain as a partner of a British citizen with a British citizen child.
Unfortunately leading up to his expiry date his partner informed him that she no longer wished to remain with him in a relationship and agreed that he must move out of the family home but can maintain contact with his child.
After speaking to other firms in the region our client instructed us and asked us to help him obtain his leave to remain in the UK.
We advised our client on his options and informed him that the best route for him at this present time was to switch to the parent route category which will still enable him to get settlement after 5 years,
Our Solicitors at Apply for UK Visa helped our client by advising him and assisting him in staying in the UK so that he can continue to maintain contact with his son despite the difficulties that he was facing.
Successful Parent Route Variation Application by Apply for UK Visa – Immigration Solicitors
With years of experience in dealing with these applications which are filed online we advised our client on the documents which he would need for his application.
His main concern was the issues whether he would be able to leave the ten year partner route and enter the five parent route instead and our advice and guidance satisfied him that he could do this.
After compiling the relevant documents we submitted our client’s application and uploaded all of his documents ahead of his appointment at the UKVCAS appointment centre.
We made the whole process smooth for our client and ensured that at all stages our client understood what we are doing and why.
We initially ensured that the client was advised of the correct documents that he will need to provide with his application as this was an application to be made whilst relying on the Immigration Rules and highlighting the best interest of the child attached to the application.
We then prepared our client’s case and ensured that all of his documents and information was presented in his application form and that it is in accordance with the relevant parts of the immigration rules which are:
· Section R-LTRPT: Requirements for limited leave to remain as a parent
· Section E-LTRPT: Eligibility for limited leave to remain as a parent
o Relationship requirements
o Immigration status requirements
o Financial requirements
o English language requirement
As part of the application we highlighted to the Home Office that our client was seeking to rely on the fact that he did have a British child, we therefore demonstrated why it was in the best interest of the child that our client is granted his leave to remain in the UK and that it was important that Section 55 of the Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Act 2009 was taken into account when reaching a decision.
The Result - Family Life Parent Route Application – 5 Year Route
Our client was finally granted his leave to remain in the UK for a period of 30 months on the ten year partner route under paragraphs D-LTRPT 1.1. of Appendix FM to the Immigration Rules, as we had helped our client satisfy the Home Office that he met the requirements of paragraphs R-LTRPT 1.1.(a), (b) and (d) of the Immigration Rules.
He now continues to reside in the UK and has successfully switched to the five year parent route and is eligible to apply for settlement after five years in the UK.
