"One option for those looking to join their partners in the UK is the unmarried partner visa UK. A person can apply as an unmarried partner where they can show that they have lived with their partners for a period of at least two years in a relationship which is similar to a marriage.

The key to a successful unmarried partner visa application is to provide strong evidence not only of the genuine nature of the relationship but also that it has involved cohabitation for a period of at least two years. Sometimes it is necessary to think innovatively as to how this can be established if there is not a wide selection of formal documentation available to prove that you have been living with your partner.

The legal team at OTB Legal have significant experience of getting successful outcomes for applications on the unmarried partner visa UK route and can provide advice on whether this is a viable option for you or your partner.”
