Unmarried Partner Visa

London Solicitor Unmarried Partner Visa

Are you or someone you know an unmarried partner or in a religious marriage but have not undergone a Civil Marriage Ceremony in the UK and want to know how to regularise your stay in the UK on this basis?

Inside the UK

A person who is in an unmarried relationship or in a religious marriage but has not undergone a Civil Marriage Ceremony with a British citizen, or with a person holding settled status, or with a person with limited leave as a refugee or granted with humanitarian protection, can apply for stay in the UK as an unmarried partner.

You would need to meet requirements in order to apply. One of these requirements is that you must have been living together in a relationship that is akin (or like) a marriage or civil partnership for at least 2 year before the date of your application.

If you would like to know more information and/or advice, please call us on 020 8004 9199 / 0208 679 5100 or alternatively, on 07724 513 822 or send us an email to see how we can help you.

Outside the UK

If you are outside the UK and are currently not in a marriage or civil partnership with your partner, you may be able to apply as an unmarried partner from abroad or as a ‘Marriage Visitor’.

Switching into an unmarried partner visa

If you are already inside the UK, it may be possible to be able to switch into the unmarried partner category if you are in an unmarried relationship or have undergone a religious marriage but not a Civil Marriage Ceremony with a British citizen, or with a person holding settled status, or with a person with limited leave as a refugee or granted with humanitarian protection and you have leave to remain in the UK that has been granted for a period of 6 months or more.

How we can help you

For a majority of our immigration matters, we charge a fixed fee.

It is our usual practice to require any fees that are payable for work to be done on your behalf to be paid in advance before any work is carried out. This means that you must pay before any work is started, including applications that need to be submitted to the Home Office or for any appeals that need to be lodged with the First‐tier Tribunal.

However, we do understand that not everyone will be able to pay in this manner. That is why we offer flexible payment options for individual clients.

For a confidential consultation to speak with us about how we can help you about your immigration matter, please call us on 020 8004 9199 / 0208 679 5100 or alternatively, on 07724 513 822 or send us an email.

We are happy to discuss your immigration matter with you over the telephone initially so that you can decide before what you want to do or how you wish to proceed. If you are interested in seeking more information and/or advice and want to see us for an appointment in person, we ask for an initial payment on account of £150.00 to be made in advance to us after which an appointment is arranged with one of our Immigration Solicitors.

If you do instruct us and proceed ahead with the making of any application or appeal, this initial payment will be taken off the cost of the matter that we deal with on your behalf. However, in the event that you do not proceed and instruct us on any matter, then the initial payment will cover the cost of the appointment and will be non‐refundable.
