My girlfriend/partner is a South African lady (aged 40).

Customer Question

My girlfriend/partner is a South African lady (aged 40). She has a South African passport but her son (aged 12) is a UK citizen with a british passport. His father was British but abandoned the family 10 years ago and is now untraceable. The boy is unable to reside in South Africa because despite all attempts the necessary paperwork cannot be completed because he was born in Belgium and has a UK passport. The son now wishes to live in England and the mother obviously wishes to be with him. How does she go about getting the necessary visa/residence?
