Family migration routes to the UK – with a stop-over in Europe.


 One has to restrain the urge, in response to these ‘findings’, to say, ‘well what did the Government expect?’. The family migration rules of July 2012 were badly drafted, difficult to understand and in no way rooted in reality. They operate in a world where the British/settled spouse is always the breadwinner; family members never provide reliable financial assistance; and only couples with £62,500 in the bank can financially support themselves from their savings.

The APPG has made a number of recommendations aimed at tackling some of the more distressing findings, including an independent review of the minimum income requirement. It has also recommended that this income requirement be reviewed to account for any discriminatory impact and that decision-makers fully discharge their duty to consider the best interests of any relevant children when deciding applications.

Haywards Heath children beg Government not to deport their daddy.


Three children are begging the Home Office not to deport their dad.

Australian Phil Sommerville has been told he will be sent home - despite his British wife of 12 years and their three children living in the UK.

The saga centres around a letter the Government body claims to have sent in March - but the family say they never received - asking for more information to support Phil's visa application about his relationship and the family's home.

The first the family knew was when the 46-year-old was threatened with deportation in April.
