1. Dear *****antha, can you better explain the situation. Are you a British citizen? What passport do you hold? What passport does your potential fiance in St. Lucia hold? Is you annual income above £18,600? Are there any children involved?

2. Firstly, if the child is that of your St Lucian partner, then you can apply for a Family permit for him to join you here in the UK. So long as you can show a subsisting relationship of two years, or an intention to marry and have the child, you can get a family visa for him to come and live and work with you in the UK. It is a pre-requisite of this family visa that your annual income is above £18,600.

3. The application fee is £956 and your St Lucian partner will get a decision within 12 weeks. Here is a link to where it sets it out on the UK government website Your partner may apply online here Be aware that almost all these applications are granted once they are genuine.
