The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
If you are currently living in the UK on a Spouse or Civil Partner Visa, after 30 months, you can apply for a UK spouse visa extension.
You can do this by submitting an FLR (M) form application to the Home Office. In order to be eligible for a Spouse Visa Extension, you will need to ensure that you still meet the same requirements that you met when you were granted your original Spouse Visa.
Contact us today on 0333 363 8577 or use our online enquiry form to speak with a qualified immigration lawyer who can help you with your UK spouse visa extension. We will work with you to make sure you still meet the requirements for your Spouse Visa or Partner Visa.
We will ensure all your documents are up to date and that they can continue to prove your relationship to your Spouse or Partner is genuine.
One of our lawyers will also prepare a Letter of Representation to support your application. This letter will give details of your case and offer reasons and support for its acceptance. We will help to maximise your chances of success in getting your UK spouse visa extension.
In order to extend your Spouse Visa, you must meet the following requirements:
Changes to the Home Office Immigration Rules mean that some people who did not originally have to meet the English Language requirement in their application for a Spouse Visa may now have to satisfy this part of the application in order for their Spouse Visa renewal to be approved. This affects any applicants whose “leave to remain as a partner” expired on or after 1st May 2017.
If you make a UK spouse visa extension application that is unsuccessful for any reason, you will have 14 days from the date you received your decision letter to appeal to the First Tier Tribunal.
If you submit an appeal after this deadline of 14 days, you will need to explain why your appeal was late.
It will then be down to the First Tier Tribunal to decide if they will hear your case.
If you are submitting a Spouse Visa extension application and have any doubts about any part of the process, it is important to get expert advice. The terminology used in Spouse Visa extension applications and related guidance forms can be very confusing. The financial requirements (for example, the minimum income threshold) can also be difficult to understand. Our immigration lawyers are here to help guide and advise you.
Our services include:
Our immigration lawyers can also assist you if your UK Spouse Visa renewal is refused by the Home Office. We can guide you through the appeal process and, if you are taking your appeal to a First Tier Tribunal hearing, we can arrange for you to be represented by one of our expert immigration lawyers.
