Unfortunately, our existing funding has come to an end and trusts and organisations these days have other funding priorities. We have achieved what we set out to do since the referendum in 2016, which was to help as many people as possible, to secure their status here in the UK after Brexit. It was a great pleasure to be here for all of you during all these years and to share the joy of all your success stories. Each and every success made our day, as did your support and very kind words.

  • LAWYER RESPONSE Advise on when the EU sponsor passes away

    My EU spouse and I (non EU) have been in the county for 3 years now. I came on the EEA family permit got my Residence Card. We both got our pre settled status. We have been married for 23 years. My husband sadly passed away this year. My questions are:
    1) Do I now have to apply for the Retained right of Residence knowing that the Residence Card won't be valid after 30th June 2021?
    2) Is my Pre-settled status affected now that my sponsor has passed away?
    3) Should I apply for 'Retained Right of Residence' when applying for my Settled Status?
    Thank you.

    Afternoon,

    I'm very sorry to hear this.

    Louis M (lawyer) Would you be able to comment? It is my understanding they wouldn't need to apply under retained rights until the time comes to apply for settled status.

                    (b) The relevant EEA citizen has died and was resident in the UK as a worker or self-employed person at the time of their death; and
                    (c) The relevant EEA citizen was resident in the UK and Islands for a continuous qualifying period of at least two years immediately before dying, or the death was the result of an accident at work or an occupational disease; and
                    (d) The applicant was resident in the UK with the relevant EEA citizen immediately before their death; and
                    (e) Since the death of the relevant EEA citizen, no supervening event has occurred
