Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello I am happy to help this evening.
It seems you may satisfy the long-term partner scenario and can apply for a family permit or to the EU Settlement Scheme if either:
you had lived together for at least 2 years by 31 December 2020
there’s evidence you’re in a long-term relationship - for example, you had a child together by 31 December 2020
Your partner will need to prove their relationship with you. They can do this using a residence card or a family permit.
If they don’t have a residence card or a family permit, they can use things like:
joint bank statements
joint utility bills
joint mortgage statements or tenancy agreements
your child’s birth certificate
Is there anything else I can help with this evening?
This is ok you may still satisfy the criteria.
Have you lived together for at least 2 years by 31 December 2020?
You can apply for a family visa to come and live with your partner if you’re either:
A husband, wife, civil partner, proposed civil partner or fiancé(e)
you’ve lived with them for at least 2 years
You can only apply for a family visa if your partner has one of the following:
indefinite leave to remain or right of abode
refugee status or humanitarian protection
settled status from the EU Settlement Scheme
Freedom of movement ended at 11 pm on 31 December 2020. Any EU, EEA, or Swiss citizens (and their families) who did not arrive in the UK before then will now be subject to immigration control.
You may wish to contact a national charity setup to handle issues like yours, if you bear with me I will get their details.
JCWI is an independent national charity. They provide free immigration service on all immigration, asylum and nationality law matters.

I hope this helps.
Yes that is also an option under if you work for a company with an English subsidiary.
You may be eligible for a visa under the points-based immigration system.
If EU citizens intending to work in the UK are not eligible for the EU Settlement Scheme or the Frontier Worker permit (for example, because they arrived in the UK after 11 pm 31 December 2021 and have no recent history in the UK), a business may be able to sponsor them as a Skilled Worker or under the Intra-Company transfer route.
Unfortunately I can only provide guidance and I am unable to refer directly to or recommend a solicitor.
Alternatively you can access a local solicitor using the following website.
Tenancy or rental or mortgage/ownership agreements.
Joint bank statements/joint financial statements.
Utility bills or local taxation evidence.
Life insurance and named beneficiaries in policies.
