UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
When did you become a Uk citizen?
Where does the child's mother live?
Which court is the case being heard in?
Will your mother agree to the move?
No I mean will she agree to the child moving here?
What do you wish to know about this?
What steps have you taken to trace the mother?
Are you asking the Court for permission to bring the child to the UK?
Which country was the child born in?
You need to have the Permission of the Court to remove the child from Nigeria before you apply for a Visa.
You will need to apply for a visa which can be done online
You will need to pay the health care surcharge and also show that you can maintain her
However there is no reason why she will not be allowed to join you IF you get the Court Order.
Please ask if you need further details
I am not sure quite what you mean.
You need the consent of the mother or an order from the Court to remove the child from Nigeria.
You are the parent of the child so are entitled to apply for a Visa for her to join you here
You are not using the parent route. That would only apply of the child had UK citizenship and you were applying to join the child here
