Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

How do I apply for a family or extended family permit?

An EU Settlement Scheme family permit makes it possible for a non-EEA family member of an EEA citizen to enter the UK.  If you do not have a permit and you are not from one of the visa free nations, you will have trouble at the UK border.

To be eligible as an EU family member you must be:

  • the spouse or civil partner of an EEA citizen
  • an unmarried partner of an EEA citizen with whom you are in a lasting relationship
  • a child or grandchild under 21 years old, or dependent child, or grandchild of any age of an EEA citizen
  • dependent parent or grandparent of an EEA citizen.

Adopted family members are treated the same as a natural family for the purposes of EU family permits.

An extended family member is a sibling, aunt, uncle, cousin, nephew or niece who is dependent on the EEA national, or a member of their household, or is reliant on their care due to a serious health condition.

You may also qualify for a family permit under the Surinder Singh Route, or if you have a derivative right of residence or retained right of residence.  Our team can assist you in quickly establishing if you can enter or remain in the UK under any of these routes.

What criteria must be met by the EEA citizen I am joining?

The EEA citizen whom you are joining must meet the following criteria:

  • have started living in the UK before 31st December 2020;
  • if they have lived in the UK, but no longer do, you might still qualify for the family permit if they have died, left the UK or the family relationship has broken down, this is known as retained rights of residence;
  • If they are British citizen, but prior to becoming British held an EU nationality

How long will the Family Permit allow me to stay in the UK?

If your application was approved more than 3 months prior to your arrival date in the UK, you will only have 4 months validity on your permit. 

If the application was approved less than 3 months prior to your travel, then the family permit will be valid for 6 months.

In either of the events, you will need to apply for Settlement Scheme within 3 months of your arrival, or risk refusal, unless you have reasonable grounds for late application. 

What can I do on family permit?

You can leave and re-enter the country, you can rent, work, study and live in the UK. However, all the above will be lost if you do not secure your residence in the UK by applying for Settlement Status.

How do I qualify for a Permanent Residence or Settled Status?

After you have lived in the UK for 5 years as a family member of an EEA national or someone with retained rights (or combination of these two categories), you will qualify for Settled Status. You will need to make an application through the Settlement Scheme, to be awarded Settled Status. 

Why should I instruct RVS Solicitors to help me apply for a Family Permit?

Our solicitors are experts in dealing with EEA matters and can quickly spot if there are aspects of your application which may cause the Home Office to refuse it.

We will guide you in respect of your circumstances, the documentary evidence to put forward and will write a covering letter to accompany your application to explain any issues.

By instructing us, you can save time, money, and relax in the confidence that we have got your EEA application in hand.

      Dealing with Rakhi was more like having In house counsel than hiring a law firm
      So Rakhi Singal of RVS has just handled my divorce, it was a very complex case and I came to Rakhi at the very last minute on a friend’s recommendation. My case was a mess and I stood to lose everything.

      Dealing with Rakhi was more like having In-House counsel than hiring a law firm, she does not approach her clients as a cash machine like many law firms do, she works with you to manage and minimise your costs and de-escalate conflict rather than throw wood on the fire.

      She took a huge personal interest in my case, she was always available on the phone, very quick to respond to emails and is very honest and trustworthy.

      My ex had huge spending power and used a team of high profile solicitors against me, Rakhi literally saved me from complete ruin and helped me get a very fair deal with me spending 6 times less than my ex on legal fees.

      Thank you, my new family and I will be forever grateful!!!!

      Rakhi’s passion for her profession supersedes the norm
      On dealing with a very stressful and emotional situation involving my young child. I was personally directed to Rakhi Singal. From the very outset of my situation, Rakhi identified the immediate difficulties I faced and offered me a sympathetic and rational approach to my situation, ensuring that she had a full understanding of my issues and concerns. Rakhi’s approach to my case was monumental and customary to my needs and that of my child, which was a fundamental point for me.

      The communication and support I received in and outside of court was nothing short of extraordinary. Rakhi’s passion for her profession supersedes the norm and is clearly demonstrated through her results.

      Highly recommended. Lusine helped me out with my ILR 10-year continuous residency application. She explained everything to me, and patiently answered all my questions. She also put my mind at ease. They are very quick in replying to my emailed queries. I consulted two other solicitors before someone recommended RVS to me; the first one did not seem quite sure what to do, the second had exorbitant rates. RVS's fees are very reasonable given their professionalism. They give a breakdown of the fee and make sure you understand everything. They also make sure your data is protected; they use a secure upload site for your documents. I am very grateful to them and will definitely recommend them to anyone who needs an immigration solicitor. I would give them 10 stars here if I could.
