A change in UK spouse visa law could provide hope for families living apart

A change in UK spouse visa law could provide hope for families living apart

As of August 10th, 2017, visa applications for families outside of the EEA will take into account the ‘specific circumstances’ potentially reuniting the 15,000 families currently living in separate countries as they do not currently meet the Minimum Income Requirement laid out by the government.

The Home Office will now consider ‘Specific Circumstances’ for those unable to meet the Minimum Income Requirement for sponsoring family members outside the EEA.

Home Office decision-makers will decide if the 18,600-Minimum Income Requirement would be met through other methods of financing. This will include evidence of sustainable self/employment within three months of moving to the UK, proof of continued support from a financially stable family member or other such persons.

The changes are following a February 2017, Supreme Court ruling in which the principle of the 18,600 Minimum Income Requirement but considerations were made and the Home Office will have to take into account the potential earning potential as well as consequences of refusal.

This new ruling has provided hope for thousands of families who had previously been refused their UK application and spouse visas. For those looking to reunite their families in the UK, this could potentially be a life changing precedent.

If you believe you may be affected by this new ruling and are unsure about what to do next, contact one of IAS’ spouse visa specialists. They’ll be on hand to give you the advice you need and offer you the correct legal guidance to move forward with your application.

If you require the services of an immigration expert to assist you with any problems you may have in regard to being a non-European visitor who is planning to live, work or study in the United Kingdom then the Immigration Advice Service can provide you with all the help and advice you could possibly need to promptly move things forward.
