Private Life Application


Private Life Application

Since 9 July 2012, the Immigration Rules have contained a new framework for considering applications and claims engaging Article 8 of the ECHR (the right to respect for private and family life). Appendix FM to and paragraph 276ADE(1) of the Immigration Rules provide the basis on which a person can apply for entry clearance to the UK or leave to remain in the UK on family life grounds or leave to remain here on private life grounds. 

Article 8 of the ECHR states that: 8(1) Everyone has the right to respect for his private and family life, his home and his correspondence. 8(2) There shall be no interference by a public authority with the exercise of this right except such as is in accordance with the law and is necessary in a democratic society in the interests of national security, public safety or the economic well-being of the country, for the prevention of disorder or crime, for the protection of health or morals, or for the protection of the rights and freedoms of others. A family who wishes to come to or remain in the UK, usually chooses to do so because they feel it’s in their best interest to do so. A family cannot necessarily exercise that choice however, unless the requirements of the Immigration Rules are met.
