Our client is a national of India who is married to a British citizen that lives in the UK and was initially helped by us in her Entry Clearance Application in early 2018.
She had entered the UK and was coming up to the point where she was going to apply for her spouse extension visa in the UK but was not sure what she needs to do.
Our client reached out to us and informed us of her concerns and that she required us to work for her again so that she can secure her extension under the 5 year route as she worried she may get forced by the Home Office to go onto the 10 year route as she may not meet the rules.
Our Solicitors at Apply for UK Visa helped our client by advising her and assisting her in staying under the five year route to settlement by making a successful spouse visa extension application for her.
Successful Spouse Visa Extension Application by Apply for UK Visa – Immigration Solicitors
With years of experience in dealing with spouse extension applications which are filed with the Form FLR-M we advised our client on the documents which she would need for her application.
Her main concern with this application was the fact that she was on maternity leave and her husband’s income because of COVID-19 had been impacted so she may not meet the financial requirement rules under Appendix FM of the Immigration Rules.
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 visa application.
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
Immigration status requirements
English language requirement
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 a spouse visa extension application under the Immigration Rules Appendix FM.
We ensured that our client’s husband’s income and her income was correctly noted down in our cover letter for the Home Office and that the decision maker would not have to go through all of the documents, this was done to ensure that our client remains on the five-year route to settlement.
Following the completion of our client’s application we then ensured that all of her documents were correctly uploaded to the UKVCAS portal after booking her appointment.
On the day of our client’s appointment she only had to attend with her Passport, BRP Card and her Appointment Confirmation, she did not have to worry about taking her documents with her to then wait and have them scanned, she was happy that she only needed to spend some 30 minutes inside the centre, many of our clients point out to us that they are nervous with these appointments as they do not know what to expect.
The Result - Spouse Visa Extension Application
The client was granted successfully granted her Spouse Visa Extension Application under Appendix FM of the Immigration Rules.
She is now still in the UK with her husband and child and is continuing her family life and has already been advised by us on what she will need for her spouse visa settlement application after the grant of her 2.5-year extension under the five year route to settlement.
