No marriage certificate, but already on dependent visa

Postby m_jain9 » Wed Jun 16, 2010 7:29 pm

I am planning to change my Visa status from Tier2 - ICT to Tier1 General (its a in country application).
I want to apply for the Dependent Tier1 Visa for my wife at the same time with my application. But I don't have marriage certificate. My wife is currently staying with me (from last 3 years) as my dependent on Tier 2 - Dependent (formaly WP) visa. And also having my name in her PASSPORT in the husband/spouse section.

As, I need to submit the proof for dependent for dependent application, How can I submit my application without marriage certificate, based on above given evidence?

Please help & advise.

I think Tier2 dependent can not switch within UK, need to go back to home country to apply.

I am afraid, rajesh is not right.

Tier 2 dependent can switch to Ter 1 dependent status.

If the spouse is switching then dependent can also switch with his/her spouse. However dependent can not switch to be a main applicant. To be a main applicant dependent needs to apply from home country.

Could you please provide any reference?

I am quite sure that Tier 2 dependent can not switch to the Tier 1 main applicant... for reference please see page 12 of Tier 1 guidance notes http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitec ... idance.pdf

As mentioned in the given link, Tier 2 - Dependent can switch to Tier -1 Dependent, but not in Tier 1 - General category. To transfer the Tier 2 - Dependent into Tier 1 - General, they need to go back to home country and apply from there.

So yes, Tier 2 - dependent can Transfer to Tier 1 - Dependent.

But this is not my problem. It will be a great help, if someone can advise me on my case (no marriage certificate, so how to apply for Tier 1 -dependent)?

I did not say Tier 2 dependant can switch into tier 1 but can switch into tier 1 dependant.

@m_jain9 : My personal advice would be to get marriage certificate first. I won't suggest to take unnecessary risk because of it.

When you would be applying for her for Tier 1 dependent then her application will be seen independently regardless of the facts in which it was issues for Tier 2 dependent.

Seniors please correct me if I am wrong here.

Best thing would be is to call the UKBA inquire number and ask for advice.

Marriage certificate or a marriage affidavit is MANDATORY evidence.
A friend of mine asked on the publicvisaenquiries email and got a response
saying that relationship proof is mandatory.

Did you get any solution for absence of Marriage Certificate

Postby vishsinghal » Sun Jul 31, 2011 1:55 pm

Hi M_jain,

Am in similar position as yours. I have all the proofs including each others name endorsed in passports as spouse. But we do not have a marriage certificate currently.

What has been the result in your case and also what do you think is the best option. I can give proofs of joint bank accounts, joint rent agreement, common address, photos, phone calls, emails, childs birth certificate which has both of our names as parents etc.

Thanks

Hi M_jain, could you get VISA without marraige certificate

Postby vishsinghal » Tue Aug 16, 2011 7:11 pm

Hi,

Pls respond, since I saw you have enquired about this but none had answer and you would have gone through similar experience. So your response would be really helpful. For me the issue is with the education of kids which is getting delayed

Thanks in advance for the response

Hello Vishal and MJain,

Can you please confirm how did you go about the dependent visa without the marriage certificate, is an affidavit from a solicitor accepted as a part of application. Even in aour case we have the name in each other's passports and on the birth certificate of my daughter. Please advice.

Thanks
