Help Us Fight in Court the Cruel MIR Increase

Last December, the Tories said they would double the Minimum Income Requirement (MIR) – a minimum salary that British citizens and settled residents must earn if they want their loved ones to join them in the UK.

The government plans to raise the MIR in three stages. The first increase, from £18,600 to £29,000 came into force in April. By spring 2025 it plans to raise the threshold to £38,700 – 70% of the UK workforce doesn’t earn that amount with only 21% of female workers earning above the threshold. A salary so high that only 3k out of the over 40k Home Office staff earn above that threshold.

Reunite Families UK is taking the government to court, standing up for the thousands of couples and families who get in touch every day, expressing their shock and concern that they can’t be with their loved ones in their country of birth or adoption. We believe the decision to raise the Minimum Income Requirement was taken unlawfully, the Home Secretary went against official advice and failed to comply with his legal duties to assess the impact of the decision or consider the best interests of children.

We must stand up for our right to family life.

Help us say NO: 

NO to accepting that only rich people can fall in love with people born abroad.
NO to being a bargaining chip just to reduce net migration figures by a negligible number 
NO to being made poor and scared about our future in the UK
NO to separating our families
YES to keeping couples and families together
