Application For Permanent Residency As A Non-British Citizen

Good day, I am looking for assistance with my visa. I am an American citizen and married to an EU national. My visa reflects this status. I have lived in the UK for 6 years come August and my visa expires in September. I am employed full time. I would like to apply for permanent residency and require legal help with the process. Can you please send me information on who to speak to in your office and any rates pertaining to the work? If you need any information from me, please let me know.

Our Response

Thank you for your immigration enquiry regarding a permanent residence application as the family member of an EEA national.

The application is based on your partner's right, as an EEA national, to remain in the UK. This means that it is your spouse that must show that he has remained in the UK for a consecutive 5 years and exercising their treaty rights as a Worker/ Jobseeker, Self-employed, Student or Self-sufficient person. Additionally, you must prove that you have resided together in the UK for at least the 5-year period to apply. Your employment is not compulsory.

Your right to permanent residency is automatic and provided that you can evidence the above, it could be that you obtained permanent resident status at an earlier date. Once you have held this permanent residence status for at least 12 months, you may be eligible to apply to be naturalised as a British citizen. However, it is compulsory to apply for the permanent residence card prior to making a naturalisation application.

Please give us a call for a free no, no obligation consultation to advise you further.

I found Joe very helpful and tremendous patience which is a must in this professional as there are lots of emotions always involved in each and every case.

The way they dealt with my case during COVID19 Situation is highly appreciable. I would definitely recommend Joe D. and Anna F. Anna is an amazing lady, her patience is beyond my words.

Her hard work and professionalism have no boundaries. She is the right person for all type of cases.

Thanks to Anna and Joe for all your support and guidance which helped me fulfill my dream.

"Anna Foley was the lawyer helping my partner obtain an EEA EFM visa. She was outstanding. Handling the case with constant correspondence over a lengthy, lockdown delayed 7-month application process. Her expert advice guided us successfully through some difficult times as a result of COVID-19. Some of the best service I have received for any service ever! Often replying to emails late at night, offering to send additional correspondence to the home office and going above and beyond in handling our case! Well done and thank you Reiss Edwards and thank you Anna!!".

"Professional service. I was very impressed with the fact that my ILR application was successful 6 weeks after the submission amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. I also think the portfolio put together by the team at Reiss Edwards has played a big part in the quick turnaround of my application".
