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.
