EU Treaty Rights

This type of residency derives from the European Treaties and its secondary legislation which sets out the entitlements of EU citizens and their spouses in circumstances where the EU spouse is residing in an EU member State other than his /her own.

These rights have been subject to much litigation and Stanley and Co Solicitors have considerable experience in dealing with the Department of Justice in relation to such applications. These EU permissions may also extend to other family members in certain circumstances.

  • Special rules apply where the original permission is to be extended.

  • Special rules also apply upon marital breakdown or where the death of the EU spouse takes place following a grant of residency.

  • Permanent EU residency is possible on renewal where this type of residency lasts for a period of 5 years.

  • It is important to take expert advice on these applications so as to avoid disappointment.
