This is not such a big deal if you are married and you are exercising your treaty rights.megmog wrote:He overstayed his visa in the UK by a year.
You don't have any??? Did you work and get payslips (duplicates from your old employers)? Did you pay income tax or council tax while in the UK (duplicate statements from Inland Revenue)? TV license? Did you have a car with insurance? Or a credit card? Were you registered to vote? Did you have a telephone or cellphone contract? Often you can get duplicate bank account statements going back several years. You can try to contact all of these people to get a copy of your records. Most will say they can't do it, but a few will send you the records.megmog wrote:We have been asked to provide evidence of legal residence in another member state within the next 10 days... we dont have any!
I think you will have to learn to love the uncertainty for now. It will take a while to sort it out. (When you get your passports back it may make sense to apply for a UK family permit).megmog wrote:I am very worried this will mean our application failing.

"I am afraid that the Irish Department of Justice is taking a very strong line with regard to the EU Treaty Rights of non-EU nationals married to an EU citizen but that is not to say that you do not have a case.
At present, the Department of Justice are awaiting a judgement in a court case relating to the Irish legislation that governs this area and until then the Department of Justice will not process any applications under EU Treaty Rights, unless the non-EU applicant can prove that he/she was resident in another EU Member State."
So basically, i am going to do what i can and see how far we get!
God this is like a rollercoaster...! I dont know whether i am up or down
