Spouse/partner visa – Appeal against Minimum Income Threshold now heard in Court of Appeal!

We have received many enquiries with regards to the spouse/partner visa routes and the current situation.  As a result, we have a short update for our clients.

In 2013, the UK High Court found the controversial UK immigration rules requiring a minimum income of at least £18,600 for spouse/partner visa and dependant child applications, as ‘unjustified and disproportionate’ where the sponsor is a refugee or a British citizen.

The UK Home Office has however filed an appeal against the judgement made on the 26th of July 2013.  This appeal was listed to be heard in March 2014 in the Court of Appeal.

We should receive further information on this by the end of the month.
