How old is she please?
Can she physically look after herself and carry out day to day tasks (eating/cleaning/dressing etc)?
Okay. Just to clarify, do you mean that your mother in law can carry out day to day tasks and is not dependent on you either for care or financially?Tom
Drafting your answer now. 5 mins please.
Thank you for your question and patience, I’m Tom and I’ll try to help you.
As you are an EEA citizen, then it would be for her to apply for an EEA family permit to come here and join you if she is eligible.
However, as she is your mother in law she would only be regarded as a family member for the purpose of applying for this is she is “dependent” on you, see “Qualifying as a family member” on the following link for confirmation:
Therefore, you would have to show her that she is financially or socially dependent on you.
If she can look after herself and does not depend on you for money then she would probably not be eligible and the application would be rejected.If she could not look after herself and is dependent on you then you could attempt to apply. However, it’s a complicated application to make and you would have to instruct a UK basd solicitor to take your detailed instructions, draft the application and advise you of the necessary supporting evidence that you need to submit with the application.
If you consider that she is dependent on you then you should book a consultation with a local immigration solicitor with a view to instructing them to act on your mother’s in law’s behalf for the purpose of applying.
My goal is to provide you with a good service. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up issues specifically relating to your question.
If you are a UK citzien then the only way that you could bring here is on an adult dependent relative visa:
See "Coming to be cared for - you’re an adult dependent relative" on the above link in order to find out whether or not you think she is eligible.
She is not entitled to anything at the present stage but if your objective is to bring here her and you consider that:
1.She needs long-term care to do everyday personal and household tasks because of illness
2. The care is not available or affordable in the country she is from
3. You can support/accommodate her without accessing public money
Then you must see a local solicitor immediately with a view to making the application for her..
