AIUI, you cannot marry another individual while being given leave to enter / remain the UK as a spouse of different individual. If your relationship with your partner breaks down regards I have seen the above posting on the UKBA website but it is not really clear. Would the no switching rule apply ...

No, NHS employees are not Civil Servants. John, only crown employees are civil servants so what about local government employees like the council etc? A civil servant or public servant is a civilian public sector employee working for a government department or agency. The term explicitly excludes t...

I called Home Office 2 weeks before and they said NHS official are acceptable for refrees No doubt correct, but a receptionist is not an official. Or put it this way, using your definition, almost anyone could be called an official. Is a cleaner at the hospital, doing a very important job, an offic...

Re: you thoughts on these wordings

Hi I am in exactly a same situation as this case. I was imposed a fine by the court for a speeding violation - that I accepted at the first instance. The fine was imposed in May 06. The NCS recommended that I should wait until May 11 for the 'spent' period. However, I looked at section 3.4.2 of Cha...

Good News for Long Residency Applicants - Chp 18

Dear All: Just saw the new publised IDI for LRC and the rules have been relaxed as per the previous rules. Gaps less than 6 months are even allowed so long as you left the country with a valid LTR and returned with a valid leave. Read Below: 2.2.4 Time spent outside the United Kingdom Continuous res...

The reason UKBA have no record of these persons' ILR is because they have not made any application or been granted Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK, so there will be no Home Office file. They came here with Indefinite Leave to Enter , which as the OP stated was endorsed by the Immigration Offic...

Denise T: Simple solution is to contact the Local BHC which issued the EC for your daughters and make a request for copies to be sent to you under the data protection act. I believe your daughters need to give their consent since they are over 18 years now. The danger is that, the records would have...

My understanding is that a child dependent does not need to attend. Certainly when we applied at the Birmingham PEO in March 2002, we clarified it and were told that my step-daughter, then aged 6, did not need to attend at the PEO. Nevertheless ILRs granted to both my wife, present, and step-daught...

But is this the case if one has a VISITOR's visa? This is what I am unsure of. Does a visitor visa count as a valid visa for ILR purposes? Well, if your VV was a multiple entry visa then you are fine but if it was for single entry, the moment you left the UK the visa becomes null and void and if yo...

As an American Citizen, assuming she has a US passport, your "fiance" does not require a visa to enter the UK for visits less than 6 months.
