It's not quite a full answer as I don't know what permits they'd be entitled to get, but as part of the application your partner would be required to name relatives etc who could possibly be included in a future application... e.g. I chose to input the details of my Mum, Dad, Brother and Sister.

If I understood and am recalling it correctly, if the children are not named in this section of your partner's application they would not be considered on any other grounds than their own in the future, but if they are named on this section they can be considered off the back of your partner's/your status in the future.

I may have it wrong... someone else may be able to confirm?
