For those of you stuck in this predicament, just want to let you know that charity BritCits is planning to challenge the ADR rules in court. They are raising money for the court case, the lawyers are going to be doing the job for free but court costs have to be borne.
This is presently the best course of action for those thinking of applying or going to lawyers themselves. It is better to join hands and work together to get these rules altered.

ILE for Mother & Brother

Postby BCMN1 » Sun Dec 21, 2014 11:52 am

Dear Moderators, Guru's & Senior Members,

I would like to apply Indefinite Leave to Enter, for my mother(aged 74) and my brother(aged 34, has down-syndrome dependant on mother and myself). They both currently hold 2 years family visitor visas(been here twice and returned within 180 days).

I am a BC along with my children and my spouse is awaiting decision on her Naturalisation application(passed 6 1/2 months). I'll appreciate any suggestions to prepare successful application for both of them.

My mother is person of financial means and properties and we can sell an overseas property either to invest in a business or buy a house in the UK. But there is no permanent care taker for both of them, apart from myself.

My current salary is above 20K and can also accommodate them in my current house.

Thanks in Advance.

If your partner is British then your family can not get any special visa because of your marriage. If your partner is European, but not British all your family can get a visa for 6 months and it is free. Watch the 3 minute video and follow the links in the description to the government website. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGXQofH1zU4

I am British citizen and would like my parents to come and stay with me Permenantly

here are the details
(1)My dad is 65 and my mom is 60
(2) my mom not very well with her health, with her back , she is not good with her memories and i think she has got depression like not happy and ect maybe because of their son left them alone , my dad 65 now getting old they live in 5th floor in a flat not lift he doesn't feel right with his breath when he is walking all them stairs
(3)I have only one brother , My brother lives in same country but they don't speak to each other, he lives with his wife separate from my parents , and he is not bothered to take care of my parents.
(4) They both are financially dependent on me. They have no source of income and no assests other then an apartment which they live in.
(5)I am sending them money through a money gram every month for PAST 3 years
(7) they come as a visitor every year to stay with me for 2 month , i go and meet them once every
I am married and have not got children, I am renting a 2 bed house, which have enough space to accomodate my parents

My questions are
(1) Is it possible that they come and live with me permenantly. Do i have a strong case
(2) Will the embassy/home office will create a problem because my brother is living in the same city however he is not bothered to take care of my parents. As well even he is financially he has not got source of income and he cannot take care of my parents
(3) Should they show thier health conditions to the embassy. Will this be a positive point or will they view it as a burden on NHS
(4) Will you advice me to consult a lawyer
(5)People say when both parents are 65 or over will be more easer to bring in the uk is it right ?
(6) Any valuable advise

Hope some one will help

Do both of your parents require daily help from carers for everyday tasks such as washing, dressing, household tasks etc? Even if they do both require constant care, you have to show that you cannot afford to pay for this in their own country, or the care is not available. You don't appear to have a strong case and if you apply and fail, future visitor visa applications are likely to be refused.

Age alone isn't the criteria under the tougher rules. If they don't both need the daily care to carry out basic everyday tasks then they won't qualify, whatever age they are. The most difficult issue is that if you can afford to pay for their care in the UK then the Entry Officer will take the view that you can afford to pay for it in their own country where the rate of pay will almost certainly be less.

Just to confirm that adult dependant visas are very difficult to get. A close friend of mine, over seventy years old, still grieving over the loss of her husband and with strong ties to the UK has been denied such a visa. It was not surprising as she did not meet the criteria but her son applied for her regardless. She is on her own, thousands of miles away from her children and with no other family member at all. It is sad. I know sometimes the response is why don't the children go back and live with the parent(s) but the children were born here and my friend is not in her original home country. The rules are obviously very strictly applied. It is unfortunate that the visa for retired persons of means was eliminated some years ago. My friend would have been a perfect candidate for that as she does have assets and would certainly not be a burden on the state.

If you aren't happy with your solicitors, change them.

This is a very, very difficult visa to get. So it isn't possible to say what the chances are without detail.

What will happen once the notice of appeal is filed with the Tribunal is that you will get an acknowledgment of it and then a hearing notice. There might be a "CMR" listed, with is a Case Management Review. It's not that likely unless there are extra, complicated issues that you will need to attend this.

The full hearing will be at a Tribunal. You will need to serve a "bundle" in advance on the Home Office and the Tribunal, containing witness statements, any other evidence (such as medical, financial) relevant to your case, a chronology, and a skeleton argument.

Hello there,

It is so sad to see there are so many unsuccessful cases here, just wondering if there is any successful case we could share and learn?

I am a chinese mum with a permanent resident visa, my husband is british and we have two little girls. My mum 65 is recently ill with lunch cancer, which she might not have much time left. She is here in the UK at the moment with a family visiting visa. She is weak but she is fit to travel, it's still so heartbreaking to see she needs to go back to China soon. And she might never could make back to UK again. My 6 years daughter asked me today, why grandma could not stay with us?

Just wondering if there are any way we could extend her visitor visa or swap to a different visa, so she could stay here with us? I do believe being with us will help her so much fighting with cancer. We have enough funding to pay her medical privately here, but don't know how to keep her here.

Hope someone could give us some suggestions. We will be so so appreciated.

Many thanks to you all.

She doesn't actually have a family visitor's visa, probably, unless it's an old, multiple-entry one. Nor is there such a thing any more as a Medical Treatment visa. They are both sub-divisions of the Standard Visitor's Visa, but you can stay for longer if the purpose is for private medical treatment. ANd yes, you can extend in-country.
