London Solicitor Adult Dependent Relative Visa
Do you or someone you know have an elderly parent abroad and want to know if it's possible for them to come to the UK?
If you have a non-EEA adult dependant relative(s) abroad and you are a British citizen in the UK, or a person with settled status or a person with refugee status or humanitarian protection, then you may be able to consider the option of adult dependant relative category of the Immigration Rules.
There are a number of requirements to meet in order for a non-EEA adult dependant relative to apply from abroad. No application under this category can be made from inside the UK.
The usual requirements include the following:
- The non-EEA adult dependant relative can demonstrate that as a result of:
he or she requires a level of long-term personal care that can only be provided in the UK by their UK based relative(s) in the UK and without recourse to public funds; and

- as a result of age, illness or disability require long-term personal care to perform everyday tasks; and
- must be unable, even with the practical and financial help of the sponsor, to obtain the required level of care in the country where they are living, because—
- it is not available and there is no person in that country who can reasonably provide it; or;

- He or she will be adequately maintained and accommodated in the UK;
- Will not have recourse to public funds.
If the application is successful then the non-EEA adult dependant relative will be granted indefinite leave to enter the UK if their UK based relative is a British citizen or a settled person.

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.

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.
