New report on Adult Dependant Relative Visa

July 14, 2014

'Harsh, Unjust, Unnecessary' : Adult Dependant Relative Report,  is a new report by JCWI and BritCits, launched on 9 July 2014, the second anniversary of the family migration rules.

The new Adult Dependent Relative Rules (‘ADR Rules’) came into force in July 2012 as part of the changes to Family Migration rules. The ADR Rules provide for elderly parents or grandparents of permanent UK residents and British citizens to apply to join their family in the UK.

The report looks into the impact of the ADR Rules on families and speci´Čücally on minor children and calls on the Government to undertake its own assessment to evaluate the impact of all the Family Migration rules on children.
