The following Immigration guidance note Produced in partnership with Jo Renshaw of Turpin & Miller LLP provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
This Practice Note sets out tables of eligibility requirements for applications for entry clearance under Appendix FM and Part 8 of the Immigration Rules as the child of a parent who has been granted limited leave as a partner (and, for Appendix FM applications only, as the child of a parent who is applying for limited leave as a partner at the same time).
Note that children of sponsors who are serving or discharged members of the armed forces may also be eligible to apply under the Immigration Rules, Appendix Armed Forces. Applications under Appendix Armed Forces are outside the scope of Lexis PSL®Immigration.
Whether the application is made under Appendix FM or Part 8 depends on when the child's parent last applied for limited leave as a partner.
If the parent applied for limited leave to enter or remain before 9 July 2012 and that application was granted, the child’s application must meet the requirements of Immigration Rules, Part 8, paras 301‒303. As it has not been to possible to apply as a partner under Part 8 since 9 July 2012, a child will only be eligible to apply for entry clearance under Part 8 if their relevant parent applied before 9 July 2012 as a partner, but the child has remained overseas for some reason since that
