  • Referred to Lawyer Extended family member application process

    Hi everyone.
    I am an extended family member of EU. I hold BRP and completed 5 years in UK. Now I applied for settle status. I received this email from HO. They are asking for more evidence of dependency and household.
    But I lived in a different address past few years and I don’t have evidence of dependency and same household address.

    What should I do kind of situation like this?
    Please share your thoughts. TIA

      To apply for SS, you need to show that you still meet the requirements, which generally means being part of the same household or showing financial dependancy. If you lived independently and were not supported by the family member you probably don't meet the requirements. You don't specify which family member you are, but that's what's generally required.

        I am an extended family member. My brother is sponsor.
        I was living in same household in 2015.

        My brother was in housing benefit. He wasn’t earning much.
        In 2016 he gave birth another child.
        We were living in two bedroom house. So I had to move on because they needed space.
        Meantime I turned 18 and started working. So I was able to live by myself.

        These are the main reason for me to live separate.

        How to explain this and what will be consequences?

            It seems that you are no longer dependant, as you work and live in a different household, if this is the case you may not get settled status, I suggest you seek specific legal advice

              Pavel_14 Applications for extended family members are often refused, since it can be difficul to show you satisfy the criteria to be regarded as a dependent relative. For that reason, it is highly recommended to seek private legal advice from a qualified professional. We do have a team of lawyers who volunteer on the forum and also offer private services for a fee, their details are here: Lawyers. Gabriella, who very kindly responed above, is one of them, her details are also linked from her signature: Gabriella B - UKCEN Citizenship and Residence for European Nationals and their families
