Separated from Irish spouse and stamp 4

Post by Redstar33 » Tue Dec 22, 2020 10:11 pm

Hi guys.

I'm new here and really need your help.

I am non eu married to Irish citizen. We've been married for more than 4 years. I first studied but now am full time employee. I'm on stamp 4 for almost 3 years. Stamp expiration date is late January.

Our marriage went sour. He left the state and then Covid happened. He couldn't (didn't) want to go back and I don't want to leave either. We tried to reconcile but the conflict is too great.

I notified the SINU about our current status few months ago, haven't heard anything from them since. I wanted to proceed for a divorce but have to do the separation first.

As I am in employment and the likelihood of not being able to renew my stamp, what is the chance of temporary extension being granted? Or worse, leaving the country? I'm here for 6years and aware of not qualified for EU treaty rights.

Can anyone advice on what I should do next? It's really stressful. Any advices are appreciated.

Best.

So are you separated or not?
The title and the post seem to contradict each other.

As far as I remember no COVID-19 prolongations will be issued after 21 of January 2021. You need to go to registration office when your permission is due to renewal. As your husband is not present, you will not get your stamp renewed. You may be asked to fill out a form and to wait until they make a final decision. If you get a few extra months you will get a letter confirming the same to prove to your employer that you're working legally.

Sorry for any misunderstanding.

We're separated. I informed SINU but haven't heard from them. My due date is coming, I tried to book an appointment for renewal but because we're separated, he won't be around.

Thanks for your advice. I'll try booking with immigration. Tho its only for first time registration.

A new extension has just been announced. You will have until end of April to get things sorted.

How long do I have to wait for the SINU before getting a response?

Hi guys,

I've posted in the forum before regarding my separation to Irish spouse. I notified them about our current situation and asking for a visa retention.

It's been a few months and I still haven't heard from the SINU. My GNIB card is expiring soon. Any ideas on the waiting time?

Thank guys.

Just wait, they will get in touch with you when they can. As long as you've informed them you will be ok.

Still waiting for ISIN regarding separation notif (Irish spouse). Visa situation.

Post by Redstar33 » Tue Jan 26, 2021 4:19 pm

Hi guys,

What should I do next when I'm approaching my original expire date, yet still no news from INIS? I want to know if they could grant me an temporary permit while waiting for their final decision.

I understand they granted everyone a new extension to 20th of April. But what should I do if by then I still don't hear anything back fom INIS? As I'm told the waiting period might take up to 1 year due to backlog. What should I do during such period to be able to keep working?

Thanks a lot guys.

Extension of permissions was granted only to those, who still meet the conditions of their permissions and would have renewed it in a normal way.
You do not meet the conditions of your permission anymore and you will not be able to renew it. You will not be allowed to work after your permission ends, and your employer will very likely ask you to show that you have made an attempt to renew the permission, for example a confirmation of booking of an appointment which you don't have as you husband must be there to confirm you're still together.

You need to get in touch with the GNIB and ask about further development of your case and wait for their decision. Tell them about your employment as well. There is a chance that you will get a temporary extension.

Do you by any chance know the email address to INIS? As I am having a hard time looking for it.

And thanks a lot for your comments. You've been very helpful all this time.

Do you think how long would it take for the temporary extension to be issued? Thank you.

You're welcome.
You need to call to your local Garda station, in which you have registered in the past. All contact details including station specific email addresses and phone numbers can be found on garda.ie

I have no idea how long it will take. We're in another lockdown until March. Ring them and tell them that you have run out of time.

Any updates on this? I decided to separate from my Irish husband and will soon be applying for retention as well. Been married for 4 years, and living in Ireland for 6. Have a good job and do college . Hopefully they will grant me.
