Success Story - Family Life Partner Route Application – 10 Year Route

Our client is a national of Pakistan who originally entered the UK as a spouse of a British citizen.

Unfortunately following the breakdown of her marriage she used another firm to apply for settlement under the Domestic Violence route which was sadly refused.

We were instructed by the client after her refusal when she was considering claiming asylum on the basis that she could not return to Pakistan due to her fear from her husband’s family who were still in Pakistan.

Success Story - Family Life Partner Route Application – 10 Year Route  - Apply for UK Visa

Whilst in the UK our client met her current partner who is settled in the UK and entered into a relationship after her divorce with her abusive ex-husband.

We were instructed by our client to assist with her application to the Home Office to file an application for further leave to remain on the basis of her Family Life that she had established with her new husband.

Whilst waiting for a decision our client also gave birth to her child who is a British citizen by virtue of her father’s status in the UK.

We immediately informed the Home Office of the change in circumstances and kept the Home Office up to date with the developments in our client’s personal life.

Our Solicitors at Apply for UK Visa helped our client by advising her and assisting her in staying in the UK with her husband and child and obtained a successful outcome for her in her partner route application under Article 8 of the ECHR.

Successful Partner Route 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 she would need for her application.

Her main concern was that she had a refusal in the past and was still worried that she may have to leave the UK and apply again for entry clearance. We helped our client by advising her on the process and informed her why and how she could be removed from the UK but under the circumstances that she was in this was not possible for the Home Office to do.

We made the whole process smooth for our client and ensured that at all stages our client and her husband understood what we are doing and why.

We initially ensured that the client was advised of the correct documents that she will need to provide with her application as this was an application to be made whilst relying on Article 8 of the ECHR.

We then prepared our client’s case and ensured that all of her documents and information was presented in her application form and that it is in accordance with the relevant parts of the immigration rules which are:

· Section R-LTRP: Requirements for limited leave to remain as a partner

· Section S-LTR: Suitability-leave to remain

· Section E-LTRP: Eligibility for limited leave to remain as a partner

o Relationship requirements

o Immigration status requirements

o Financial requirements

o English language requirement

For the parts that our client did not meet under the rules we highlighted to the Home Office that our client met the requirements under Appendix FM Section EX: Exceptions to certain eligibility requirements for leave to remain as a partner or parent.

We also very carefully highlighted to the Home Office the exceptional circumstances and the insurmountable obstacles as discussed in the case of Agyarko v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2017] UKSC 11

As part of our work which the client instructed us on we prepared for her a detailed cover letter in which each part of the rules was referred to and the person who was dealing with the case at UK Visas and Immigration was made aware of how our client meets the rules for under the Immigration Rules Appendix FM and also Article 8 of the ECHR.

Following the completion of our client’s application we then ensured that all of her documents were correctly uploaded to the Home Office Portal ahead of our client’s attendance at the Home Office Service and Support Centre Biometric Enrolment in Sheffield.

Following the filing of the application our client informed us when she gave birth to her child which led to us filing further representations and on this occasion highlighting to the Home Office decision maker that the child’s best interest now needed to be taken into account under Section 55 of the Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Act 2009.

The Result - Family Life Partner Route Application – 10 Year Route

Our client was finally granted her leave to remain in the UK for a period of 30 months on the ten year partner route under paragraphs DLTRP1.2. of Appendix FM to the Immigration Rules, as we had helped our client satisfy the Home Office that she met the requirements of paragraphs R-LTRP1.1.(a), (b) and (d) of the Immigration Rules.

She is now living in the UK with her small child and husband in Bradford and has already been advised what documentation she needs to keep for her extension application in 2 years time.
