Fareeda: Family Visa

After the breakdown of her marriage, Fareeda was unsure of how she would remain in the UK with her child. Thanks to the hard work of IAS, her application was a success and she now lives comfortably with her child.

1: The situation

Fareeda first entered the UK on a Spouse Visa with her son. Unfortunately, the marriage broke down and Fareeda suffered violence before leaving her husband.

Fearing for her and her child’s safety and future in the country, Fareeda turned to IAS for advice.

2: How IAS helped

After a quick phone conversation, Fareeda was booked in for an advice session with one of IAS’ experienced lawyers. She told her lawyer about her situation and provided information about the incident with her husband.

Her lawyer found that there would be no way for Fareeda to comprehensively prove that she had suffered violence and that she would be able to stay as a result of it. However, they noticed that her child was a British citizen and decided to apply on this basis.

Her lawyer carefully constructed her case, including all the evidence of the breakdown of her relationship and her relationship with her son.

3: The outcome

After several months of waiting for a decision on this complex and sensitive case, IAS received the news that Fareeda had been granted Further Leave to Remain as the parent of a British citizen.

Fareeda was grateful for her lawyer’s advice and for their decision to change her application to better suit her eligibility. Because of this, IAS was able to help Fareeda stay in the UK to raise her child without being dependent on her ex-husband.
