Re: Surinder Singh Settled Status Paper Application:

Is there a phone number you can call for updates on your application? When you call the number on the HO website none of the options are right and it just says "wait at least a month". Well since they have all our ID cards and passports that's making life pretty difficult and we need them back ASAP...

Re: EU settlement - Non EU family member - CoA and decision time

You dont need to send passport unless they ask you to. Its scanned when you go to give in your biometrics and you take it back straight after. Is this the right thread? My spouse is applying to the EU Settlement Scheme as a non-EEA citizen. The application form said they need her passport as ID sin...

Re: EU settlement - Non EU family member - CoA and decision time

How long did you have to wait after applying to get your passport/ID card back?

I need to travel and my spouse needs to register at the GP etc and the HO has her only forms of photo ID.

Re: EU SETTLEMENT SCHEME FAMILY PERMIT OR EEA FAMILY PERMIT?

EU Settlement Scheme Family Permit is for people with partners who are also applying under the Settlement Scheme. Because your partner is Irish they don't need to use that scheme. I'm not sure if they can use it. To apply for the EU Settlement Scheme Family Permit your partner needs to have a Settle...

Re: "Why are you returning to the UK" - trick question?

I see, thanks. I am keeping my job until March, working remotely, then I'll have to find something else, so I can't really claim that. We didn't want to be stranded because of brexit, especially if there is no-deal. Not sure how to word it. Would like to just put "brexit" or "brexit uncertainty" wit...

"Why are you returning to the UK" - trick question?

I see that the Surinder Singh route route settlement scheme form asks why you are returning to the UK. Is this a trick question? Using the Surinder Singh route route it doesn't seem to matter at all why you are returning, legally speaking. If I put "Brexit uncertainty" could that be a problem? Or "F...

Re: Non-EU Spouse UK Settlement question

Yes, so you are not an EEA citizen, and your wife is. So your wife is exercising treaty rights (Freedom of Movement) and you can apply as her spouse I think.

Family members after applying for pre-settled status

The children of non-EU family members can apply to come to the UK under the EU scheme. What happens if the non-EU family member applies for pre-settled status?

In that case can the children still use the EEA route?

Thanks so much.

Re: EEA4 Application 3 months within planned Brexit

I'm no expert but I'd apply for settled status. It seems like the most certain, secure thing to do.

Non-EU spouse and pre-settled status

Hi. My spouse has an Irish residency card, only a few weeks old. She has been living here in Ireland since October. I am a British citizen. If we move back to the UK, can she apply for pre-settled status under the settlement scheme? My understanding is that she is eligible but obviously just wanted ...

Re: Eu Treaty files waiting time - EU1 or EU1A

As long as you have proof that you applied (e.g. a tracking number for the letter) you are okay, even if the temporary stamp on your passport expires. I was told that explicitly by the treaty rights division and the local Garda.

Just hold on, they are very slow I'm afraid.

Re: Eu Treaty files waiting time - EU1 or EU1A

DJ_goodfella, did the acknowledgement letter give you a deadline for a decision?

If you applied in September the deadline should be this month (six months from application).

Re: No answer after further documentation sent

Always worth paying the extra to get a signature on receipt, then you have proof that it was delivered and they can't say they didn't get it. If they lose it or don't process it in time that's their fault.

Re: Bringing spouse over

To exercise treaty rights you either need to be working or show that you are self sufficient, i.e. you have enough money for yourself and your husband without relying on the state for benefits etc.
