Re: Married to a British citizen application questions

Post by juma007 » Thu Dec 20, 2018 9:45 am

Hi

We have used my husbands brothers wife as one of the referees since we are not blood related, now we are thinking we make a mistake, we still didn’t attend our service center appointment.

We are thinking now if this referee is OK or can we get the HO to correct as a honest mistake or can we cancel the application then reapply?

Please advice as we are worried now.

Thanks

You cannot use a referee who is related to you through blood OR marriage.

We have already submitted the online application how can we correct? Do we withdraw the application and resubmit? What’s the best course of action.

Find another referee and ask them to sign the paper form and submit that with your application at your appointment with a covering note.

This has already been answered!!! You can only use referees who are NOT related to you in ANY form or capacity.

sorry about that.

we have a new referee who is an accountant at an LTD company, he is also a member of ACCA but didn't complete all exams, does he qualify as a professional referee?
