To be eligible for this visa, you will need to show that you have been living with your partner (who is a British citizen) in a relationship for at least two years when you apply. You will need to provide documentary evidence to show your cohabitation (for example property documents such as a mortgage deed or lease, council tax bills and utility bills).
Some partners may not have these documents and it can be challenging to determine what documents can be used in order to make this sort of application. We have experience of assisting couples in these circumstances and if you are interested in finding out how we can help please contact us.
You also need to show that you:
- are in a “genuine and subsisting relationship”;
- have a good knowledge of English (see below);
- can financially support yourself and your dependants (see below); and
- can satisfy the “accommodation requirement”
