Re: Northern Irish giving up British Citizenship

If she is married to you and she is covered by EU free movement law , then her free movement rights come directly from her relationship with you. Since she has a US passport, you can together board an airplane to any EU member state (including the UK) without first having to get a visa. The person ...

Re: Northern Irish giving up British Citizenship

A US citizen is not required to get an EEA Family Permit before entering the UK. Not worth doing. So, what would you advise them doing so that the American wife would be able to stay in the UK long term (legally, of course)?. If she is married to you and she is covered by EU free movement law, then...

Re: Northern Irish giving up British Citizenship

A US citizen is not required to get an EEA Family Permit before entering the UK. Not worth doing. Also, you might consider going with your wife and working in another EU member state for three months. For instance move to Dublin/Amsterdam/Paris (using your British passport!) and working there. You c...

Re: EEA FAMILY PERMIT - WHAT DO WE NEED? HELP PLEASE!

So the son no longer has a valid Schengen visa? You could travel to Paris easily with that and then move on to the UK all within the law. This is the fastest option and you could leave today. Slower but worth considering: Is the child an EU citizen by decent from a parent? For example, if his mother...

Re: Advice needed: Yet another refusal of EEA FP application

Immigration law has nothing to do with fair or unfair. No point in using those words, as it suggests you do not have a lawful basis for this letter. State clearly facts about your application. State clearly which catgeory was applied for. Ideally refer to the categories in UK legislation by paragrap...

Just heard back from the Home Office.

All he had to say was that it wasn't his call and took ...

JacksonPollock, What is your citizenship?

Does the boy have a Schengen visa already?

Was your wife born outside the UK to a British parent?

Re: Northern Irish giving up British Citizenship

3 Select the visa type you would like to see fees for:
Family members of European Economic Area (EEA) and Swiss nationals
You must select this!!! If you are already married (or have lived together for a substantial time) then this is the one to use.

On the first page, it says it is free. Then later on, it says that it must be applied for online and the fee is $133. How confusing! How can something free be not free?
Where does it say the fee is 133?

Re: Permanent residence rejected due to military service abs

Be sure to ask for the case or file number. You may also write to the European Operational Policy Team. They have in the past gently contacted colleagues who do not fully understand the European law issues. Do not ask them to " intervene ". Just point out that Directive 2004/38/EC is explicit that p...

Re: Permanent residence rejected due to military service abs

Have they given you anything in writing? Please document on paper exactly when you received any call, who it was from, and what exactly what they said. I must congratulate you though. This is the funniest (almost) rejection I have heard of in a while! Did they actually threaten you with a "rejection...
