    Can IAS’ immigration lawyers in Sunderland help me with a Fiance Visa?

    The team here at IAS are able to provide exceptional guidance with every aspect of a Fiance Visa – from providing legal advice, help with your application and more.

    Our immigration lawyers in Sunderland will ensure that you meet all requirements and are eligible to apply for a Fiance Visa.

    Some of the requirements for a Fiance Visa include:

    • Meeting the minimum age requirement of 18
    • Being involved in a genuine relationship in which you have met your partner prior to making a Fiance Visa application
    • Your partner must have adequate savings for you both to live off, or must be earning a certain amount (minimum of £18,600 per year before tax).

    Once one of our immigration specialists in Sunderland have confirmed that you are in fact eligible for a Fiance Visa, we can proceed with your UK visa application. We can maximise the potential of your application through providing detailed and adequate levels of documentation to support your claims and provide sufficient evidence.

    We know it is unfortunately common for the Home Office to reject Fiance and Spouse Visa applications due to lack of adequate documentation and evidence, so our immigration lawyers will work tirelessly to prepare a superb application.

    For assistance with your Fiance Visa, whether you require legal advice or guidance with an application, call us on 0333 220 4358.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    It is certainly possible for an individual to apply for a UK visa application without the help of an immigration lawyer.

    However, bearing in mind the complexity and length of many UK visa applications, our experienced team of immigration specialists in Sunderland are aware of the many mistakes and factors that can result in a rejected application.

    Rejected applications are costly, time consuming and exhausting. We know that those applying for a visa are usually doing so with a specific deadline in mind or perhaps a personal goal they are keen to achieve. Maybe you would like to travel in the UK or perhaps you are being transferred to the UK by your current employer for work purposes.

    Whatever your reason for seeking a UK visa, the application process is typically both timely and difficult to get right.

    We would highly recommend seeking the expertise of one of IAS’ immigration lawyers in Sunderland to guide you through the application process. What you may pay now in administrative fees with IAS’ help, you could later save in the event of repeatedly rejected applications.
