Legal Justice Solicitors urge those seeking advice and assistance in Judicial Review cases to make every effort to ensure that they seek the services of a competent and experienced solicitor or firm that specialises in these types of cases. A Judicial Review will invariably be the last available option open to legal challenge. Judicial Review applications are generally complex involving the close or narrow interpretation of law or thorough and complicated legal analysis or judicial reasoning. The preparation and conduct of a case therefore requires meticulous care and skill which should in our view only be undertaken by an experienced solicitor.
A person who is married to a British Citizen or a person who is present and settled in the UK can apply for UK spouse visa. If your spouse is outside the UK, an entry clearance application as a spouse should be submitted to the British High Commission/Embassy in the country of nationality or country of origin of the applicant. We will assist you from the start to the end. We have a very good success rate.
Meanwhile, those who continue to be affected are looking for ways to meet the rules (e.g. with a second job or savings) or other alternatives, including emigration to another EU country (Surinder Singh Route) but the door will close soon as we exit the EU.
How To Meet the UK’s Spouse Visa Income Threshold Using Savings:
Of course not everyone can relocate to another country or find a second job. . Thus others are left with no option but to try to find a way to meet the income rules from within the UK.
Among the many questions I get asked on this issue, I have noted that most people find it difficult to calculate how much they need to have in savings if their UK income falls short. It is simple. You need to earn £18600 to sponsor a spouse. For example, if you earn £17000.00 you are short £1600.00. Therefore, you times 16000.00 x 2.5 = £4000.00. Then add a further £16000.00. The total savings you require is £20000.00. Simple. Therefore, what ever the shortfall, times that by 2.5 and add £16000.00 you get the total savings you will require in your bank for the past 6 months.
Further Leave/Indefinite Leave
After living in the UK for some time you may be eligible for further leave to remain. Please note that those with British Children with no status are also eligible to apply for leave to remain.
After you have lived legally in the UK for a certain period of time, you may be able to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). Various applications for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) which can be submitted to the UKVI. Make sure you get it right the first time as the fees are now close to £2000 for each applicant.
