    I live in the uk , my pregnant partner is in the Philippines , we have been partners for over 2years,
    I am planning to go over there for the birth of our baby and to register our baby in the British Embassy whilst I am there .
    I own my house and have a good job earning over the required amount of ÂŁ18,000 a year
    We are not married yet but plan to if I can get my partner over here .
    I have been looking up section 8 of the human rights act which states we have the right to be together regardless of being married or not as we will be a family when our child is born .
    could you please let me know how do I go about getting them here to be with me not for a holiday but for good ?
    thank you Tony

    Securing your UK Marriage Visa

    I have touched on this a few times in other posts and pages. Congratulations on your news and I hope everything goes really well. I would suggest you prepare for your visa now by contacting the UK Visa office in the Philippines

    Based on what you have told me you should not have an issue, especially if you were married legally prior to your application being filed.

    I would suggest you relax and once you start the process if you have specific questions please ask. The idea of section 8 should not be required as the immigration Act of 1971 as enough provision to allow your wife and child to join you in the UK.

    Thank you so much for contacting me and thanks for congratulating us 🙂
    Are you sure we can apply for a marriage visa even tho we are not married yet and we don’t live together ?
    we are partners 2 years now, ive been to the philppines lots of times
    the reason I mentioned section 8 is because it states we have the right to be a family regardless of being married or not .
    ? so we still could face issues with the officer because we are not married yet
    please let me know thanks once again .
