Derivative Residence Card

Post by zambranocarer » Mon Jul 09, 2018 2:39 pm

Hi there,

Please i need help with lodging in the Derivative residence card under the Zambrano carer route.

A little about my background, i am a single mother to a 5 months old boy who has a British passport through his father. as i am the sole carer of my son. my sons father has only seen my son once, he doesn't contribute towards the upbringing of my son.

i have read a lot of refusals about this application hence why i am seeking for help and advice. How do i prove the father is not in the picture as i don't even have his current phone number.

As i am putting in the application myself (i cant afford a lawyer right now) Please i will like to know which section on the DRF (1) form to fill. For those that have had a successful application without needing to appeal, Which supporting documents did you send.

Im really desperate for help, any advice will be helpful. Thanks in Advance

Zombrano maybe very difficult path.
Why don’t you apply for flr fp public funds.
Are you aware that zombrano has no settlement.?

Hi there,

I considered that application, But i cannot afford to pay the application fee, and i thought i would equally need a solicitor to put in that application.

I read about the settlement, as i just want to be legal, i thought that Zambrano will be the easier option.

Could you give me some advice regarding flr fp public funds application. it will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I agree that fee is heavy and fee waiver has very slim chance of acceptance.
I don’t think that you need a solicitor to lodge that application i am sure you can do it yourself with help from this forum.i done my application myself.

Sorry I wasn’t clear earlier what I meant by saying flr fp public funds was that as you are a single parent you are likely to be granted resource public funds with your leave to remain.o know a few people who are single parent and has been granted resource to public funds.
You can look into fee waiver option if you think you may qualify for that.

Thank you so much for your response, Means the world to me.

Its awesome you did your application yourself.

Could you kindly tell me what application you did. was it the flr fp as a single parent, i really do not want to make a mistake.

What sort of information / document did you send to accompany your application if its not too much to ask, it will be nice to see the witness statement you presented (just to have an idea).

With the recourse to public fund do you have to request it with your application?

sorry for the million questions.

Thanks in advance.

My application was as a partner not a parent.
But the application form is same for parent and partner route.
It really depends on your circumstances that what documents you should send but mainly it will be evidence that your child loves with you and also his proof of nationality ideally the British passport.
There is no statement required but you can just add a cover letter describing your circumstances and a list of documents you are including with your application.
Regarding public funds caseworkers have to take into account the welfare of the child and decide appropriately.
If you request public funds you may need to provide some details of your financial circumstances and also any evidence you have of that.
Feel free to ask if you need any help with application form or anything else.

Thanks a lot for replying, i have manage to print off the FLR (FP) form today.

i am still trying to figure what information to send with my application, as i am currently staying with my brother, can he write a statement to show that my son lives with me as i currently don't have any proof of address.

I really don't want them to refuse me hence why i am stressing like this. i am equally hoping i get granted with recourse to public funds.

since i am applying as a parent, it will be nice to know what sections of the form to fill out. Plus i cant believe i am about to file in an application by myself.

Just make sure all the mendatory sections of the form are filled.
