EEA / EU settlement scheme

EEA Regulations
Whilst the United Kingdom remains in the EU and the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations remain in force, there are various ways for you to remain in this country if you have a relationship with an EEA national exercising Treaty Rights in the United Kingdom, whether you are, for example, a spouse, partner, relative, primary carer or extended family members. Whilst the routes to obtaining a residence card under the Regulations can seem simple, the process can be complicated with the need to produce evidence.

SMA Solicitors can advise you on all aspects of the Regulations including:

  1. The application process for a residence card;
  2. If your application has been refused;
  3. Allegations that your marriage is a sham;
  4. If your residence card has been revoked;
  5. If you are facing deportation as an EEA national / family member.


EU Settlement Scheme
The advent of Brexit brought about the EU Settlement Scheme which requires EU, EEA and Swiss citizens to apply if they wish to continue living in the United Kingdom after 30 June 2021 with successful applications leading to either settled or pre-settled status. The deadline for applying for the scheme is 30 June 2021 but we would advise applying as soon as possible in order to avoid unexpected delays if, for example, you are missing information or evidence.

SMA Solicitors are able to assist you with making applications under the EU Settlement Scheme and advising you on the entire process.
