Hello,

You may apply for entry clearance as a parent of a British child who intends to live in the UK permanently.

Although the requirement is that your child needs to be already living in the UK, your case is complicated as the British child will be moving at the same time as you. I would therefore suggest that you engage an immigration lawyer to assist you with the aplication.

The requirements of this visa are set out here:
