One of specialisms is in assisting assist extended family members to remain in the UK with their EU partners, even if they are not married. Extended family members also include those who are unmarried, so long as they can demonstrate that the relationship is genuine and durable.

Below we have outlined some of the criteria and terms used within EEA extended family member application:

What are the requirements that these Durable Partners need to show?

The following requirements are normally assessed by the UKBA.

  1. One of the couples must be an EEA national exercising treaty rights (i.e. working or one of the other categories.)
  2. The applicants must have the intention to permanently live as a couple together.
  3. The applicants must have been residing together in a relationship similar to that enjoyed by a married couple, and that relationship should have existed for two years or more.
  4. The applicants must not be related by blood. Essentially, there is no blood relationship.
  5. Any previous marriage or long term unmarried partnership or similar relationship by the EEA party or the third party national has now permanently broken down.

Although the EEA durable partner visa application is similar to the UK unmarried partner, it is sometimes worth noting that the EEA durable partner visa applications do not strictly require the couple to have co-habited for two years.

In our experience, we find that our clients benefit from booking a consultation with one of our immigration lawyers to assess:

(a) whether they are eligible for the application;
(b) the next steps to get the process started;
(c) the time frames involved.
(d) the legal and government fees applicable.
