No need to contact them now. Just apply on form EEA4 near the end of your current Residence Card.My question is: do I have to contact the HO and make them aware of my divorce and get my passport re-endorsed or wait for the 5 years period and then apply for PR?
You do not need to do anything for the retention: your current residence card remains valid. But it might be necessary to inform the HO, since this is a significant change of your circumstances. Just write them a letter, and send it as "signed for".Morpheo wrote:in the June 2004 I got married to an EU person, however, after 3 years our marriage has been dissolved (October 2007). been living in the UK for the whole period of marriage with the Eu spouse
Under Immigration EU law , I am aware that I can retain my residence permit and apply for PR when expires.
My question is: do I have to contact the HO and make them aware of my divorce and get my passport re-endorsed or wait for the 5 years period and then apply for PR?
You need to prove that you have lived in the UK under EU law for at least 1 year, and that requires that your spouse was a resident. So you will need to prove this. Usually this would be part of the divorce negotiations, I guess.Morpheo wrote:- proof that my ex spouse still lives in the UK or provide the date of departure
I agree with all the above documents expect for the proof of my ex still lives in the UK. how the hell would I be able to provide this? and is it NOT against the data protection act if I try to request this data?
I guess you have to ask her to help. Or do you have any shared bills from the time you were together? That would also do.I've sent everything expect the proof of the whereabout of my ex, I know she still lives in the UK but I am afraid that I can't prove it.
