Hi, I want to apply for my mother through EU settlement scheme
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the UK government? What country do you live in? What is your citizenship?

JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?

My mother came to the UK illegally and we've been too scared to apply through the EU settlement as we are scared it may be unsuccessful

I feel like I have been robbed

You do not need to pay more fees for a call. It is just an offer but you will not pay anything if you will not request a call.

Thanks. Can you answer my question?

What is your mother's nationality? What type of visa she has at the moment?

Customer: replied 23 hours ago.
She is Albanian. She does not have any visa. I have settled status through the EU scheme.

What is your nationality? Is your mother illegal in the UK?

Customer: replied 23 hours ago.
she is. I'm an Albanian too.
How did you obtain Settled Status, are you married to EEA national?
Customer: replied 23 hours ago.
I am married to a Spanish national. We both have settled status.
I understand now, thank you. How many years your mother is living in the U.K.?
Customer: replied 23 hours ago.
More than 5 years.
In this case, your mother may apply for a pre-settled status as a dependant on your EEA national husband. Her immigration status will be a negative factor in this case. Also, according to the rules, your mother must first have a family permit which can be obtained from her country and only then can apply for a pre-settled status in the U.K.
Unfortunately, success rate in this case is not high and I would highly advise to have another consultation with a lawyer before making this application.
