Hi Ally, I've applied as a non-EEA spouse of an EEA national (sent both passports but only for my PR) and received a COA dated 18th Nov. Nothing since.

Hi Vicky, it should be the date you came on FP. Sorry I cannot help with the other questions. Good luck.

Hello raclett, thanks for your reply. I just realised that my Eea national doesn't have PR but she lives and working since 2004,does she have to apply for PR first to get me PR? And form will be the same for EEA national.(EEA4).THANKS

I need an advise and hope someone could guide me as to whats best way to approach this situation.

I have been married now for 6 years however my relationship has now broken down and we now half way tru the divorce procedure however i have a RC which is due to expire in 2019 however i have been issued RC twice so i am qualified for indefinite or PR by virtue of RR so my question is what can i apply for as soon as the divorce is come through.

I believe i can simply go ahead to apply for PR directly or would i need to apply for RR before PR or could i apply for the both together?

I will appreciate any sort of advise.

Thank you
Hi,
1. Were you married for at least 3 years?
2. Was you wife exercising treaty rights or have PR?
3. Can you support yourself/ are you on a stable job?

If yes too all of the qs, then you can apply for PR directly, when you complete 5 years since the date of your wedding.

If you are still months/ years to complete these 5 years, still you do not need to apply for ROR, others might suggest that, as its safe, but I was in same position and my solicitor said I don't need it, as I automatically qualify for ROR. I have crossed immigration thrice and carried all docs and had no problems entering UK. After completing 5 yrs, I have now applied for my PR Card.

Cheers!
mbist, I have a question about your item 2:
"2. Was you wife exercising treaty rights or have PR?"

If my wife (who is EEA) gets her permanent residence during my 5 year RC. Then, we get divorced. Then, when I apply for my PR based on retained rights, do I need to show ONLY that at the time of divorce she was a permanent resident OR do I also need to show that she was exercising treaty rights before she got her PR?

Thanks.

Hi,
If she has PR at the time of Decree Absolute, then you don't need to show that she has been exercising treaty rights because she would have already done that when she applied for PR. Even in the form EEA (PR) they mention that if the sponsor has PR, then skip the rest of the Section of all those details.

But keep in mind that they ask for her PR card & passport when you apply for PR through EEA(PR). Most of the applicant cant get these docs after divorce, so they do accept certified copies of the docs. I did the same.
Hope that helps!

I don't think it is correct. You have now obtained PR automatically after 5 yrs of being married and can apply for it individually.
However, you both apply together as well using the same form EEA(PR). She will have to prove that she's been exercising her treaty rights in the last 5 yrs.

Timeline:

01/07/2015 - Application received by Home Office (Turkish civil partner of an Irish citizen, who exercised treaty rights as both student and worker)
07/07/2015 - Biometric enrolment letter received
30/07/2015 - Certificate of Application Received

31/12/2015 - Literally 2 days after 6 months had passed since posting our application, I called the Home Office. Attempted to persuade me to call back at 'the end of next week, due to the busy new year period'. I persisted and the application was flagged for someone to call me back with details.

05/12/2016 - Received a phone call from HO. Was told nothing had been sent and that enquiries would be made. Could not give me any timeframe and said I probably wouldn't get a further call back. At this point I decided to raise with SOLVIT and local MP.

08/12/2016 - Received documents back with a letter stating that biometric card will be sent within 10 working days.

My advice? Once you're 1 day past the 6 month deadline, turn on the pressure.

Hey, no probs.
It's better if you apply together with EEA national as the main applicant. The process gets quicker.
Good luck!

Hello everyone after 5 months and 2 weeks long wait I am happy to let you know that today I have received all my documents and letter with my PR :D
Little recap on my journey:
My wife came in to this county 2005 and has been working ever since we got married in 2010 and soon after I received RC for 5years. My wife also became British in 2013 so from that day she held it and still does two Nationalities , also she went to maternity twice and after that worked part time.

Application sent as non - EEA national married EEA 21/07/2015
HO received - 22/07/2015
CC charged - 24/07/2015
Biometric received - 22/08/2015
Biometric submitted - 24//08/2015
COA received - 24/09/2015
PR letter received 08/01/2016 with all documents.

Wish you all best of luck . Thank you very much for all people who are in this forum. By checking this forum every day since I have applied you all gave me the hope with success stories to go thru this long wait. :)
