Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
How long it takes depends on HO, it could take a couple of weeks or a couple of months for her to get a curtailment letter. Her visa will be curtailed to 60 days validity.Once we notify the home office how long can she work on her visa and/or stay in the country? She needs to save up enough money to leave which I understand.
What line of work is she in? Is she highly skilled? She also cannot switch to a sponsor work visa within the UK either. She has to apply from her home country.She may be getting sponsorship from her employer which I think was her plan all along, would this be affected by this situation? Call me bitter but I’d like that to not happen.
Thanks for the quick response. Her job isn’t classed as skilled, but there is a chance they will offer her a skilled/management position to get round it. [/quoteunfortunateky for her, RLMT would need to be done to prove she hasn't been pre selected and that no British EU or settled person is available for the job. False rlmt or an rlmt that is specifically tailored to her to exclude all others will result in failure. Ho is a bit more switched on to the abuse of sponsors. Presumable her employer is an ho approved tier 2 sponsor??
Either spouse can use the forms once the relationship breaks down, even before divorce. You won't get prosecuted. However any future spouse visa you support light be more heavily scrutinised.I already found the forms on the home office website but it’s worded in a way which suggests the visa holder has to do it. Should I notify them now? We’re separated, but she needs to earn money for her plane ticket etc, but I’m worried that if we leave it I could get prosecuted.
