DT 1389 (FULL) Don't fall in love - significant others post 8 July 2012

This session is now full but we are repeating a similar session on 16 August 2012 in London 

The government have now announced both a Statement of Intent and laid a new Statement of Changes to the Rules in respect of “Family Migration”. The landscape for those wishing to join settled or British partners in the UK has shifted considerably, and in an unwelcome direction. Participants will be assisted to understand the significance of the new rules, particularly as these will impact upon the practicalities of securing entry for partners, but also as to wider human rights concerns. We shall try to provide a comprehensive review of the rules as they will be at the date of the course.  Topics to be covered will include: getting married, issues as to “genuineness”, maintenance and accommodation, language requirements, leave granted and options to settle, applications outside the rules, Article 8 and anticipated challenges, as well as
comparisons and contrasts with EU law.

Reviews for Barry and Tim’s previous “Significant Others” courses include: 'The best course I have ever attended, brilliant' , 'outstanding' , "informative, lively and important” says the feedback.  Tim Barnden and Barry O'Leary are described as 'particularly helpful tutors', with one participant commenting "I would be happy to attend any sessions conducted by Tim and Barry". They both specialise in applications for partners at Wesley Gryk solicitors, described in Chambers UK as having a 'fantastic reputation' and as 'developing knowledge, testing the boundaries and pushing the agenda'. According to previous participants this 'great. very informative, interesting' session 'full of practical tips' , "very useful material, good insights, well-presented and to the point' will give you an 'excellent opportunity to discuss and clarify the topics', including on developments on the general grounds for refusal and changes to minimum age for partners and spouses. Previous attendees record 'no dull moments'.

Your clients need you to attend this course!
