Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
You should write a letter addressed to ECO explaining the situation, with any supporting evidence you have but nicely documented in a folder.he was rejected because of a mistake i made with the dates, in the application form he stated that we met in 1997, however in a written attachment (by me) i wrote we met in 2003. The truth is we met in 1997, but it was so brief i didnt consider it a "meeting". we are related, and so i have known him since 97, and i was introduced to him as a cousin, however we didnt really meet until 2003, when we actually approached each other alone, and began a friendship.
another reason for refusal, was that the entry clearance officer is not satisfied that our marriage is subsisting. This is because we have been married for 7 months, and have not lived together yet since the marriage. this is purely because i was due to start work, and i didnt want to move abroad. we both agreed that it would be better that he move here. we did not apply sooner, because he is a Dr, and was in the middle of his training course, which he paid the fees for. his training year completed on the 1st july 07. another reason why he did not apply sooner, is that he is an iraqi, and did not have the new "G" series passport, and only obtained it in April 07. i submitted evidence of communication like phone bills with his number, pics, yahoo chat transcripts, emails,
As long as you can prove to the ECO with enough evidence that the place you have rented will be sufficent enough and not overcrowded. You can provide tenenacy agreement and utility bills, layout plan etc..me and my husband have decided that i move out, and i have signed a tenancy agreement now, as i have rented a double bedroom in a 3 bedroom home where a couple i know live also. would the ECO have a problem with me renting a bedroom where a couple already live? i have access to the Spam, bathroom , living area and Spam, and i have my own private space (my double bedroom).
