Child Entry Clearance
The Rules are different and depend on whether you have been granted limited leave or indefinite leave to remain in the UK.
If you have limited leave to remain in the UK, the entry clearance requirements for your child are as follows:
· The child must be under the age of 18 at the date of application;
· The child must not be married;
· The child must have formed an independent lifestyle or family unit;
· You or your partner must be the child’s biological parent. You need to demonstrate that you have had and continue to have sole responsibility for the child;
