1: The situation

Tomas came to the UK to work from South Africa. He had intended to begin his life here and bring his daughter over when he could afford to sponsor her.

Having left her with his mother and brother in South Africa, he was worried about how this would affect his application to bring her over as a dependant.

He arranged to meet with an IAS lawyer in person at one of our countrywide offices.

2: How IAS helped

During his initial advice session, his lawyer was concerned that Tomas’ daughter would not qualify as a dependant because she had been living with other relatives while Tomas was in the UK.

After viewing Tomas and his daughter’s Facebook chat logs, the lawyer noticed that Tomas’s daughter sent him pictures of items she needed and that he would pay for them for her. By aligning the messages with corresponding transactions in his bank statements, Tomas was able to prove that he had parental responsibility of his daughter remotely.

3: The outcome

Tomas’ application was successful and his daughter was able to enter the country to join him.

Thanks to the inventive solution of our lawyer, Tomas’ application was secured.

He is now able to continue making his life in the UK and provide for his daughter in person.
