After 10 years lawful residence you can apply for settlement (indefinite leave to remain). You must meet the English language and life in the UK requirements.

Our expert staff will assist you with every aspect of your application removing the worry of having to follow the complex and regularly changing rules.

You can apply from outside or within the UK. If the application is approved your partner will be given 30 months leave to enter / remain in the UK which can be renewed for another 30 months.

If your marriage / civil partnership takes place within the 6 months you can apply for an extension of leave to remain as a spouse / civil partner.

This is a difficult test to establish and we recommend that you contact our specialist immigration advisors for help with these types of applications.

If the child lives with their other parent you must show that you are not the partner of the other parent.

The most common applications based on the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR) are those made under Article 8, which concerns a person's rights to a family and private life. The most common family life applications involve the relationships between partners and parents and children although other family relationships can fall within the scope of Article 8, particularly where there is dependency.

After becoming a British citizen, you can stay in the UK permanently without any immigration restrictions and you will enjoy the same rights, freedoms and travel opportunities as other British citizens.

Registration is usually a less complicated procedure, but a person still needs to be eligible.

You must be able to show that you were born in the UK and that you lived your first 10 years in the UK. Normally, you must show that during each of those 10 years you did not spend more than 90 days outside the UK.

The points required differs from Tier to Tier.
