EEA Family Permit Visa Application

Successful Appeal After Refusal of EEA Permanent Residence Card Application

Mr O obtained a Residence Card after his marriage to an EEA national who was living and working in the UK. They lived together happily for a few years, but problems due to differing outlooks on life became significant. The relationship disintegrated completely after Mrs O formed a new relationship with another man, following which the couple got divorced.

EEA Permanent Residence Application Refused on Failure to Prove Exercising Treaty Rights

After the divorce, Mr O continued residing and working in the UK. Upon completing his 5-year stay in the UK, Mr O applied for a Permanent Residence Card on the basis of the retained right of residence. His application was refused because he failed to provide the required evidence to show that his ex-wife was exercising treaty rights in the UK at the point of divorce and that he had been exercising his treaty rights.

A Y & J Solicitors’ Review

Geetabahen Anupkumar Desai gave A Y & J Solicitors 5 stars via @Trustpilot

I know A Y & J Solicitors for many years now and instructed them for various UK immigration matters. But specially I like to talk & thank about my mother’s latest EEA residence permit under ‘Surinder Singh’ route that has been approved in the ‘First instance’. It was a very complex immigration application under EU regulation but with the help of YDVISAS and team, this became a dream come true. I always received a full assurance and a complete hand holding support throughout the application process. I am united with my mother in the UK with the top technical knowledge of EU regulation, relentless efforts and honest – humble approach of A Y & J Solicitors. Saying ‘Thank you’ won’t be enough here, having my mother with me in the UK is a lot more than any words I describe my appreciation with. I highly recommend A Y & J Solicitors to anyone who is looking for professional support in relation to UK immigration including EU regulation / Surinder Singh route.
