Such prominent coverage of the UK Immigration situation highlights the effect that this is having on families across the UK.

Following a review of UK Immigration policies, UK Immigration Barristers launched an investigation into the impact of constantly changing UK Immigration laws. They came across a number of interesting cases, some of which reveal how deep the problem goes when Immigration laws are constantly refined causing families to ‘jump through hoops’.
Nadya, 64, currently visiting from Russia, was widowed 2 years ago and she has just retired from her job as a doctor in order to provide help looking after her two granddaughters in Edinburgh, Scotland. However, in January 2013 her UK Visit Visa will expire and she will be forced to return to Russia, without any guarantee that she can return.
John and his wife Yana, who are both UK citizens, were hoping Nadya would be able to live with them, but due to the Government’s changes affecting UK Immigration rules, introduced in July, this will no longer be an option.
In order to be granted Indefinite Leave to Remain, dependent relatives are now obliged to provide evidence that they require long-term personal care to carry out everyday tasks, such as dressing and feeding themselves.
Yet, if Nadya met these requirements, Yana and John would need to prove that they could finance nursing care for her in Russia, whilst also demonstrating that they have the financial resources to provide maintenance and accommodation for her in the UK.
Nadya’s case has also been covered by the BBC and in a statement from UK Immigration Barristers, they said: "Such prominent coverage of the UK Immigration situation highlights the effect that this is having on families across the UK. Our role, as an Immigration service provider, is to attend to the needs of our customers and we recognise, the anxiety, desperation and confusion Immigration matters can cause.

A spokesperson for UK Immigration Barristers said: “More and more, cases like that involving Nadya are emerging all too often. UK Immigration Barristers is committed to helping those families pulled apart by UK Immigration laws and we have gone to extreme lengths in a bid to review our own service in order to offer the best solution in helping clients resolve their Immigration matter.
