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.

How We Helped

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-

  1. Employment
  2. Self-employment
  3. Job-seeking
  4. Student
  5. Self-sufficiency

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.

"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!!".
