Immigration Law and Nationality -

Like it or not the UK has now left the European Union. Just to be clear, we at MPB were not happy about it!

All EU nationals and their non-EU Family Members will need to apply under the new EU Settlement Scheme before 30th June 2021. Even those who already have permanent residence will need to apply under the new scheme.

Applicants will be granted either settled status or pre-settled status: Someone will be granted settled status if he/she has lived in the UK for a continuous 5-year period, or pre-settled status if not.

Most applications are straight forward, but some are less so, such as when:

  1. The non-European is no longer in a relationship with the European;
  2. The non-European is being sponsored by a European/British child;
  3. Other cases involving criminality, previous refusals, etc.

Make sure you apply to the new EU Settlement Scheme on time, and that you get proper advice on how to do so!

We have successfully assisted many clients in complex situations to secure their status under this scheme at a fair rate.
