What will you need to prove?
To apply for an EU Settlement Scheme Application, you will need to establish:
Proof of identity and nationality:
- Valid passport or valid national identity.
- Valid biometric residence card.
- Valid biometric residence permit.
Proof of your residence in the UK:
- For settled status, you will need to show five years of continuous residence.
- For pre-settled status in the UK, you need to show current residence in the UK (before 31st December 2020).
The Home Office will check if you have been resident in the UK for a period of five years, and if they can see this, they will then grant a settled status. At Ashwood Solicitors, we will work hard and offer you outstanding legal advice to ensure you are reunited with your family. Every case is different, but you can rely on our team to choose the right approach when it comes to getting visa approval.
Eligibility for Family Reunion
The family members eligible for a reunion are:
- Children under 18
- Your spouse
- Your civil partner
- Your partner with whom you have cohabited for at least two years
By demonstrating to an Entry Clearance Officer that you are related to these people, with marriage or birth certificates, you can prove you are eligible for a family reunion. For children who have been granted refugee status, they may apply for their parents to join them in the UK in some circumstances.
As of recently, there are requirements for maintenance or accommodation, but it will be necessary to demonstrate that your family members are related with the relevant documentation such as birth certificates or passports. Other forms of proof may be able to be used where these are not available, but we can assist you with the necessary documentation.
