My partner won't let me see my children after we separated, what can I do?

1) Voluntary arrangements should be discussed and decided by the parents. You should always focus on what's best for the child. If you can't agree on contact arrangements, the next step is mediation.

2) A mediator is an independent, trained professional who can help parents come to an agreement.

3) If mediation fails, either parent can apply through the courts for a Child Arrangements Order. This should always be a last resort. If possible, this decision should happen without going to court.

Apply for Permanent Residence as an EEA Family Member

A non-EEA National can apply for a Permanent Residence Card after they have lived in the UK for five years. This will prove their right to live in the UK permanently. The non-EEA National is eligible to apply for Permanent Residence within 28 days before their Residence Card expiry date.

To qualify for Permanent Residence a non-EEA National needs show that they have lived with their EEA family member in the UK for a continuous five year period. Further, the EEA family member needs to prove that they have been a ‘qualified person’ throughout the five years or they hold a permanent right of residence in the UK.

To be a qualified person the EEA National needs to be exercising their Treaty Rights as a worker, self-employed, jobseeker, student or self-sufficient person in the UK for the last five years.

In addition, the non-EEA National needs to prove that are in a subsisting relationship with the EEA National and residing together for the period of time claimed.

New English Language Requirement for Spouse Visa Extensions from inside the UK

The Home Office announced earlier this year that non-EEA partners and spouses of British Citizens and permanent residents wishing to extend their existing UK settlement visa or leave to remain from inside the UK after 1st May 2017 will need to pass a new mandatory English test.

The new requirement will apply to non-EEA nationals who have already been living in the UK for at least 30 months as a partner or spouse of a British citizen or UK-settled person (ILR holder) and who are applying to extend their existing leave to remain.

To qualify for further leave to remain (FLR) under the partner route, applicants will have to now pass an English language speaking and listening test at Level A2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) or higher.

The new A2 Level English language requirement came into effect on 1st May 2017. The A1 Level English language test has now been replaced by a higher level A2 test.

The new requirement is designed to ensure that family immigrants coming to the UK under the partner route become more fluent in English and are better able to participate in community life.

The new requirement will not apply to first time applicants submitting a UK settlement fiancée, unmarried partner or marriage visa application from outside the UK.

To qualify for an exemption under the current policy an applicant must be over 65, or have a disability or exceptional circumstances that prevent them from meeting the English language requirement.

Immigration Health Surcharge

Take note from April 2015 Migrants need to now pay a healthcare surcharge (called the ‘immigration health surcharge’) as part of their immigration application. Migrants will then be able to use the National Health Service (NHS).

Although, Migrants still need to pay for certain types of services, e.g. prescriptions, dental treatment and eye tests.

The fee is £200.00 per year for immigration applications inside and outside the United Kingdom. For example you need to pay this amount for each year the Migrant will be granted a visa i.e. 2.5 years visa = £500.00 will need to paid.

Although, if you can prove you need to visit the UK regularly over a longer period, you can also apply for a Long-term visit visa that lasts 2, 5 or 10 years. You can stay for a maximum of 6 months on each visit.

 Leave the UK at the end of the visit
 Be able to support themself and any dependents for the duration of the trip
 Be able to pay for the return or onward journey and any other costs relating to the visit

Further, if an applicant’s sponsor wishes to provide the funds for their travel, maintenance and accommodation, they would need to prove that they can/will provide support to the visitor for the intended duration of their stay.
