Spouses and Partners

We facilitate family reunion through extensive experience and devotion to getting it right

"Very commercial and straightforward" - Legal 500

The UK welcomes the spouses and partners of British citizens and settled persons, however the rules are complex and onerous. Documentary evidence is strict. We help unravel these complexities.

Over recent years the UK has adopted a modern and progressive approach to personal partnerships. Our immigration rules recognise opposite and same-sex partners, civil partnerships and unmarried partners who can establish two years prior co-habitation.

In our society, what constitutes a “family unit” has changed and evolved over time – our immigration system reflects this progress.

In contrast, the specific legal requirements have become increasingly complex and burdensome. Refusal rates are high, not because of a lack of genuineness in relationships but because evidence is inadequate. We ensure our clients get it right, every time.
