Visa refused

Post by Mehar_11 » Sun Sep 15, 2019 8:18 pm

Hi I need some advice please.

I am a british citizen. Married to an overstayer from Pakistan. We applied within the UK as a married partner which has been refused due to the fact he is an overstayer and there are no obstacles. We went through a judicial review and an oral hearing where the judge accepted that we are in a genuine relationship but he will have to return.

Our solicitor has advised us that he should return for entry clearance. We meet all the requirements but i’m still worried they may refuse him. He attended 3 hospital clinic appointments but had no treatment and was not asked to pay. Could they refuse him on this?

You should be fine. Seriously save the heart ache and time and allow your partner to go home to seek entry clearance. Place a cover letter to include information on the genuine relationship judgement and meet all other requirements.

It's just a 3 or 4 month process.

Husband's timeline - overstayer 11 yrs
08/16 - FLR (FP) Partner, refused 02/18
03-08 2018 - JR permission refused with merit
08/18 - FLR FP (Partner) PSC - Approved
07/20 - FLR FP to FLR M Switch - Approved

You should be fine. If you meet all requirements he needs to go back home and make fresh application but he should be sincere when filling a new application form cos questions about he receiving medical help in the UK will be ask if anything cos wrong he may be refuse on wrong information.pls, take note.
