Retain the right of residence is the route most of us qualify for PR.You need demonstrate exercise of treaty right by your eea partner and yourself. Go to this link http://www.bailii.org/uk/cases/UKIAT/2010/00003.html

I don't think there is any successful story with regards to retaining rights.
I'm thinking to apply for HSMP if i will be refused.

I was succesfull on Right of Retention of Residency,

When my ex EEA husband started the divorce procedings, we werent best friends anymore, so it took long time to get it the divorce done.
After that I ve sent all my papers, and just a copy of his passport with 3 years of bank statement, divorce decree, letter from accountant, tax receipt, NI receipt, invoices and letter from university.
After 11 months I was granted another 5years.

As my first family permit is finished now in 4/2010, does anybody know if can I apply for a PR now?

thank you.

yes you can, you just need to prove that since your divorce you have been working/studying/business/self-sufficient. you should them be granted PR.

just out of interest, did you do the retention of rights all by yourself with just a covering letter? i asked around and some solicitors out there are charging £1000 just to apply.

Just to let everyone who is interested know, that I retained my rights of residence. Application form sent in January 2010 received mid June 2010 (4.5 month waiting). Documents sent to HO: 1. Passport + EEA2 form + covering letter 2. Letter confirming my ex employment for a year before decree absolute is issued. 3. My P60’s + payslips 4. Decree absolute. 5. Bills, bank statements, credit card statements and other docs (both names).

Any questions, please ask…

Good luck to everyone and thank you for your advice.

Alright, but considering the number of year you have already spent with the new RC now, so when are you due for PR?

To Sleeper,

Why you didn't apply using EEA4 instead of of EEA2?
Do you have the right to marry again under the retaining resident or you have to wait until you get your PR?
Would you PM with your solicitor details (it looks like he is a good solicitor)?

Thanks
