once you will be filling up EUsettlement family permit application there you have to choose under which category you will be applying, you have to choose you are applying as a British citizen who is also dual EU national who would be granted indefinite or limited leave to enter or remain under Part 1 of Appendix EU, if they made a valid application under it...

Hi Sobia,

I applied for my mother in law and she got the permit Dec 2019.

Do you have pre settled or settled status?
If you do, you should apply again but family permit under the EU settlement scheme. When you go on the website to apply, make sure you select the “direct family member” and it’ll tell you that you are applying for family permit under settlement scheme. It’s much easier than EEA family permit.

Although dependency is assumed under this scheme, we didn’t want to risk it so we included 6 months money transfer slips and 6 months UK bank statements which showed the money going out from us.

We sent the following documents:
Passport photocopies

Proof of employment: payslips, P60 and employment contract and settled status letter, 6 months bank statement

Proof of relationship: UK marriage contract ( I was sponsoring my husbands mum), DNA test between my husband and his mum, 6 months money transfer slips.

We also included her TB test certificate and our UK kids birth certificates (which has my name and husbands name)

In the application don’t forget to put your settled status number. Also include a supporting statement explaining your situation and that you want to be united and live as a family unit.

Other things we sent but aren’t necessary as I have a friend who applied without it and still got accepted was flight tickets to when we went to see her and photographs.

InshaAllah you’ll get it very quick within 15 wds
Hi Sobia,

Thanks for your time to share your experience as many can relate to it. Just one question, when making an application do you remember what were the mandatory docs asked to provide by your relative? In my case my parents are asked to provide 2 mandatory docs (1) Passports (2) Relationship with sponsor docs & (3) optional doc - proof of dependency like bank transfers & accommodation proof. Seems like its not really an optional doc because unless I tick this doc the application wont be sent.
(1) & (2) are good but did not expect home office to ask for the (3) as according to the guidelines dependency is assumed in parental relationship with EU Settlement Scheme.

Also, you considered lawyer for professional advice to make sure you got everything right first time? If you refer me one that'd be helpful thanks!

Hello Sunil,

Do you send money over to your mum?? If you do then just write down the amount in the application form and include a few months of transfer slips in your evidence.

But don’t worry if you don’t send money. It isn’t necessary as Dependency is assumed. If you say no she is not dependent just include a cover letter to explain your situation and write in the letter that you have not provided transfer slips because as stated on the gov.uk website, dependency is assumed. Just explain in your cover letter than the application wouldn’t allow you to submit unless you ticked all the boxes.

Here is an example of a member of this forum you successfully sponsored a parent without using transfer slips.
