Success with Extended family member application. We have had lots of success with Extended family immigration applications. Click here to read more.
Our client and his partner live together in the UK now and he is on a tourist visa with an Australian passport. His partner has both Australian and Irish nationality. They arrived in the UK last month and have lived together in Australia for over 2 years in the sponsors mother's home.
The sponsor is searching for work but has not found a role yet. She is registered with the Job Centre and has evidence of applications having been made.
The durable nature of the relationship was relatively straight forward to prove. Although utility bills were limited, nonetheless we were able to collate bank statements (both joint and individual), pays lips, tax documents and letters from friends and family. They are engaged to get married, so we sought evidence of this we went as far as showing evidence of them been on holidays together and recent travels together with where they have joint rail tickets and accommodation bookings.
The crux of this case was whether or not the EEA national sponsor was a 'qualified person' - also known as exercising treaty rights. An EEA national will need to evidence one of the following qualified activities-
In light of the fact that the EEA national sponsor had lived in the UK for only one month at the time of the application and that she was able to provide us with ample evidence to show she was genuinely seeking employment in order to work in the UK, an application was submitted and ultimately granted. With the help of our immigration solicitors, our client was therefore ultimately issued with an EEA Residence Card as the Extended Family Member of an EEA national.
