Can I switch from sponsored employment to a family visa?
My partner is from the Philippines working for the NHS with a BRP she's been here for a year so far but we are looking to get married I'm guessing she would need to change her visa ? And then how long for ILR as reading the government immigration websites it's getting confusing.
Thank you for your enquiry.
Your partner may be able to switch from sponsored employment to a spouse visa. There are various eligibility and suitability requirements for you and your child in addition to being able to meet the financial threshold of a minimum of £18,600 per year income plus additional for any dependents. The continuous residence would start from the beginning in this scenario. The requirements are in depth and we would advise that you arrange a consultation to determine if this route is appropriate.
