Specialist Immigration Lawyers – Child Visas

Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors are expert Immigration Solicitors in Leeds who can guide you through the process of applying for a child visa. We understand how worrying & stressful trying to attain a visa can be and also the consequences of a failed application and how this would affect you and your family in the long term. We will advise you based on your personal circumstances and throughout the process we are on-hand to support you and explain the likely outcomes and to fight on your behalf. We have an excellent track record in obtaining successful visa applications.

Child Visas

If you wish to migrate to the UK, you may wish to arrange for your children to join you in the UK as your dependents. The Home Office classes any child under eighteen years of age as a dependent whereas EEA Regulations are more lenient with respect to the age which children are considered “dependent.” European law permits children up to the age of twenty one join their family members in the UK. However, if your child is leading an independent life or is married, they will not be considered as your dependent.

If you wish to apply for your children to join or accompany you to the UK, we can help you with your application and with your queries. Our expert team of solicitors in Leeds, West Yorkshire can assist you with the preparation of your visa application and ensure that you meet with all the requirements of the Immigration Rules. We will ensure that all documentary evidence is submitted thereby leading to a successful application.

Dependent Children

Dependent children of a person living and settled in the UK:

Children who have parents that are settled in the UK are able to join them in the UK and be granted indefinite leave to remain. There are certain conditions that need to be satisfied before the child can be granted indefinite leave to remain and it must be noted that the rule of ‘sole responsibility’ is observed very strictly by the Home Office and Courts.

Dependent children of a person who has limited leave to remain in the UK:

Under this type of visa, children will be granted the same period of limited leave to remain as their parents have. Here, the same rules as ‘sole responsibility’ apply and dependent children are given access to schools and the NHS (but cannot seek assistance from UK public funds).

Dependent children of an EEA national exercising treaty rights in the UK:

Children up to the age of 21 can join their EEA national parents in the UK but will need to comply with similar requirements as under the Immigration Rules and in addition should not be married or be leading independent lives

  • review rating 5  I used Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors to apply for my spouse visa and the case was dealt with by Mudassir Ali. Mudassir was very friendly and efficient and was certainly an expert in this field with his detailed knowledge and professionalism. The service was excellent from start to finish. The advice and requirements were made very clear to me and Mudassir was very thorough, spending a significant amount of time putting the case together and making sure nothing was missed. I was kept up to date on a regular basis and was successful with the visa being approved quickly and on the first attempt. I would like to thank Mudassir Ali and the staff at Whiterose Blackmans for all their hard work and the excellent service during the case. I would also highly recommend this firm to friends and family in the future. Excellent service and a very happy customer.
