i have also overstayed in the uk for almost a year but left on my own expenses as i completed uni.

Thanks a lot for ur advice!!! :?:
I think 35 years is pushing it a bit and ur app will be scrutinised in great detail by the caseworker.

Sorry

The age difference on its own, should not form the basis of a refusal. So long as you are over 21. For them to refuse you on marriage of convenience grounds, there would have to be other factors in addition to the age difference, which would possibly make them believe that you relationship is one of convenience.

The overstay or student visa refusal should not have an impact on your settlement application.

You only need to focus on convincing them that your relationship is subsisting and not one of convenience, that both of you are free to get married or would be shortly, if there is a divorce nearing conclusion, and would marry within the six months time limit.

If you two living together, provide evidence of joint household, contact you were making before you got together. Anything that would show there is a genuine relationship.

It is none of the ECO business to make a moral judgment about you, or to impose his or her moral and ethical views on you, or refuse your visa on moral grounds.This is not provided for in UK immigration laws. His duty is to only ascertain whether or not your relationship is genuine. If he or she thinks it is not, provide an evidence to back their claim.

I hope your fiance has evidence to prove he is divorced from your aunt if they were married.

There may be a problem with you marrying your uncle (aunt's ex husband)

http://www.adviceguide.org.uk/index/fam ... et_married
People who are step relations or in-laws may marry only in certain circumstances.

For information about when step relations and in-laws can marry, you should consult an experienced adviser, for example, at a Citizens Advice Bureau.
I think you need to see if you can actually legally get married before you take anything further.

It will not be considered an "Incestuous relationship". They are allowed to get married, provided the future husband is divorced of course.

You will not be breaking an UK law anyway.

Yes they might take a grim view of you, but no, they cannot refuse you on these basis of their grim view alone.

Okay Lisa, now, have you sorted out the Maintenance and Accommodation requirements for the Visa, and can you confirm whether it is your intention to get married within 6 months of you been granted the visa. And lastly, is it Decree Nisi (First Issued, which is open to contention) that you fiance has or Decree Absolute(final and legally binding divorce that cannot be contested).

Thanks obie for your advice. yes my fiance can prove he's divorced from her and he can prove it with his divorce decree.

Our relationship is genuine as we lived together previous when i went to stay with my aunt at the time they were separated and lived in separate rooms. we became friends and eventually bonded emotionally, mentally and psychically and our relationship began then. i left the uk and we keep in touch, through emails, msn chats, web cam, text messages, etc and he also came to visit me. we have evidence of all this to prove our genuine relationship.
i hope the ECO will see that we are genuine as i dont want to go to the uk for the sake of going there but because my fiance is there and he has his own busines which is based in the uk and thats his only way of making a living instead of coming to my country.

i hope the ECO will see that we are genuine
Hi Lisa,

You need to prepare your application well without giving too much information like 'Family is not happy with our relationship'. I would recommend that such applications need proper attention & would advice that you should get your case prepared by good immigration specialist (OSIC III). Further if your partner can take help from his local MP it will make your application strong.

Have a look at this link below:

Best of luck!
Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting...

Excellent stuff Lisa.

Which country will you be applying from?

I suppose if you can download any contacts you had on MSN, email contacts, letters he wrote to you, evidence you lived together when he came to visit you, your marriage plans and everything, then you stand a reasonably good chance of success.

I am not too confident about hiring a legal team at this time, but it does no harm at all doing so.

I would have recommended it after an undesirable response, if such a thing were to happen.

I know you said you have met the accommodation and maintenance requirement, but it would be nice if you can read these again and ensure you are fine in that regards, and has the necessary evidence at hand to prove it .

Your are both consenting adults with a sound mind, who don't need parental or familial approval to be in a relationship.

You don't need to mention your family dispute to the ECO, it is non of their business.

The reason why i asked for your country of application is to check if there are immigration consultants there, that can assist you, should you require their assistance.

Perhaps your fiance can arrange one in the Uk, as that is possible, if they are not based in your home country.
