Success Story - Family Life Parent Route Application – 10 Year Route Extension

Our client is a national of Pakistan who resides in Birmingham but has contact with his child who resides in Greater Manchester.

After speaking to other firms in the region our client instructed us and asked us to help him obtain his extension as he had been facing problems with maintaining contact with his child due to the mother of the child causing him issues.

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 try and maintain contact with his son despite the difficulties that he was facing.

Successful Parent Route Extension Application by Apply for UK Visa – Immigration Solicitors

With years of experience in dealing with these applications which are filed with the Form FLR-FP we advised our client on the documents which he would need for his application.

His main concern was the issues that the child’s mother had been causing him and that contact at times was sporadic because of the issues that the arrangements had.

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 located in Birmingham.

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 also Article 8 of the ECHR.

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

  • Relationship requirements

  • Immigration status requirements

  • Financial requirements

  • 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 – 10 Year Route Extension

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 1.2. 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 managed to continue contact with his child on a regular basis ahead of his next extension of leave to remain.
