Re: What visa can we get for our children after Surinder Singh?

That's what I thought, but what does it mean "if you’ve lived in another EEA country with an eligible family member who’s a British citizen"? I lived with my wife there and she got pre-settled status on that basis. So we have an eligible family member and this lawyer seems to be saying that her righ...

Re: What visa can we get for our children after Surinder Singh?

Heard back from the lawyer. He says the basis of the application would be Surinder Singh and that the rights continue even though we were forced to move back to the UK.

Re: What visa can we get for our children after Surinder Singh?

Yes, we would have been better off staying in Ireland. They didn't join us there and the father died years ago.

Thanks for your help, that was my understanding too. I will talk to the lawyer more, it seems like he has his wires crossed.

Re: What visa can we get for our children after Surinder Singh?

Thanks for your reply. One is 8 and the other is 19. I understand that the 19 year old won't be able to get a child dependent visa under UK rules, but EU rules allow up to age 21.

What visa can we get for our children after Surinder Singh?

I am British and my wife is Chinese. She has pre-settled status after making a Surinder Singh application (previously lived in the EEA together). She has two children, both Chinese living in China. We were told by a lawyer that we could apply for an EU Settlement Scheme Family Permit. Is that right?...

Which visa for adopted daughter?

Hi. My wife is Chinese, with pre-settled status via the EU Settlement Scheme via Surinder Singh route. She has a daughter that she legally adopted before we were married who is living in China and who is under 18. We send her money for support every month and meet the UK's minimum income requirement...

Re: EU settlement - Non EU family member - CoA and decision time

You should be able to travel, at least up until the end of this year. After that no one knows.

Re: EU settlement - Non EU family member - CoA and decision time

Applied September 2019.
Biometrics October 2019.
Still waiting. Can't seem to contact the HO for an update, they just say we have to wait.

Very worried.

Re: Surinder Singh Settled Status Paper Application:

Is there a phone number you can call for updates on your application? When you call the number on the HO website none of the options are right and it just says "wait at least a month". Well since they have all our ID cards and passports that's making life pretty difficult and we need them back ASAP...

Re: EU settlement - Non EU family member - CoA and decision time

You dont need to send passport unless they ask you to. Its scanned when you go to give in your biometrics and you take it back straight after. Is this the right thread? My spouse is applying to the EU Settlement Scheme as a non-EEA citizen. The application form said they need her passport as ID sin...

Re: EU settlement - Non EU family member - CoA and decision time

How long did you have to wait after applying to get your passport/ID card back?

I need to travel and my spouse needs to register at the GP etc and the HO has her only forms of photo ID.

Re: EU SETTLEMENT SCHEME FAMILY PERMIT OR EEA FAMILY PERMIT?

EU Settlement Scheme Family Permit is for people with partners who are also applying under the Settlement Scheme. Because your partner is Irish they don't need to use that scheme. I'm not sure if they can use it. To apply for the EU Settlement Scheme Family Permit your partner needs to have a Settle...

Re: "Why are you returning to the UK" - trick question?

I see, thanks. I am keeping my job until March, working remotely, then I'll have to find something else, so I can't really claim that. We didn't want to be stranded because of brexit, especially if there is no-deal. Not sure how to word it. Would like to just put "brexit" or "brexit uncertainty" wit...

"Why are you returning to the UK" - trick question?

I see that the Surinder Singh route route settlement scheme form asks why you are returning to the UK. Is this a trick question? Using the Surinder Singh route route it doesn't seem to matter at all why you are returning, legally speaking. If I put "Brexit uncertainty" could that be a problem? Or "F...

Re: Non-EU Spouse UK Settlement question

Yes, so you are not an EEA citizen, and your wife is. So your wife is exercising treaty rights (Freedom of Movement) and you can apply as her spouse I think.

Family members after applying for pre-settled status

The children of non-EU family members can apply to come to the UK under the EU scheme. What happens if the non-EU family member applies for pre-settled status?

In that case can the children still use the EEA route?

Thanks so much.
