    If you wish to stay in the UK in order to join your spouse, fiance, child, parent, or relative who cares for you long-term, you may be eligible for a UK Family visa. ‘Family visas’ refer to a category of UK visas which includes the Spouse visa, Parent visa, and the Adult Dependent visa.

Getting legal assistance with your application will boost your chances of applying successfully on your first try and will help make the application process as smooth as possible.
