If you are a visa national, you can apply for a visa as a spouse or a civil partner of a person present and settled in the UK. This visa is commonly known as a ‘marriage visa’. If you are successful, you will be granted 2.5 years visa and will need to extend your visa for a further 2.5 years in order to be eligible for Indefinite Leave to Remain.
There are various requirements that you will have to meet in order to qualify. For example, you must show an intention to live permanently together with your spouse/civil partner, evidence that your British spouse earns at least £18,600 per annum (more if non-British dependants are applying) and that you meet the English langiage requirement.
There is a range of case-law within this immigration area and even if you are worried that you will not meet the requirements, you may be surprised at what we can achieve.
