hi, i am so sorry that you are in this situation, i am in the same boat as you.

the regulation says that a marriage is not broken down untill the divorce is final (Absolute). if you are still in amicable terms with your husband then by all means try and submit the applicaiton right aways and hopefully he will support you with all the documents you want.

how bad is it between you two?

hi Wanderer, really man...?, can we just stick to the topic please, we are here to help right?

Wanderer, from your experience and since the absolute hasnt been granted she is technically still married right?

why does the onus always falls on the non-eea to prove that the eea is exercising treaty rights when the HO can easily check all this from the variety of databases outthere? dont you think this leaves the door open to abuse and blackmail?
