Successful application for limited leave to remain as a spouse of a British citizen

Successful application for limited leave to remain as a spouse of a British citizen

On December 22, 2021 | In Spouse / Partner Visa | By A Y & J Solicitors

Background

Mr A came to the UK about 10 years ago to study. However, his visa expired, and his application to extend his visa was refused, and he had been overstaying in the UK since then, during which he met his partner in the UK.  Ms A tried a few times to regularise his status, but they all failed. Mr A finally found us and sought our advice in relation to his wife’s immigration issue.

How we helped

During the consultation, Mr A informed us of his immigration history. After careful consideration, we advised him to leave the UK voluntarily and submit his application for entry clearance as a fiancé of a British citizen overseas. Due to his poor immigration history, we disclosed that his application could be refused, which it indeed happened. We represented Mr A and filed an appeal against the refusal. Eventually, the appeal was allowed, and Mr A was granted a 6-month visa to enable him to enter the UK to register the marriage with his partner. 

After the registration of their marriage, Mr A instructed us again to submit an application to extend his visa. We issued a checklist outlining the documents required for his application. We helped Mr A to gather documents, fill in the form, submit his application and upload all his supporting documents. 

Result 

Only 4 weeks after Mr A enrolled on his biometrics; his application was approved without any further enquires from the Home Office.
