Who can settle in the UK?
There are a variety of circumstances in which you can apply to join family members in the UK. If you are married to, or in a relationship with, a person who is either a British citizen or who is settled in the UK, you must meet the requirements set out in Appendix FM to the Immigration Rules.
You must be a person of good character, in a genuine and subsisting relationship, who intends to live permanently in the UK. The financial requirements of the rules can be difficult to navigate and it is often important to seek professional guidance, especially if your sponsor is self-employed or works in a family business. At Latitude Law we are experts in the interpretation of these requirements and can assist you in the application for your family visa.
Appendix FM also covers those applying to live with, or have contact with, a child settled in the UK. In some circumstances, older dependent relatives may also be eligible to apply. The rules here can also be complex, so it is important to get advice before you apply in these categories.
