Re: Unable to get employer's letter

It's odd that they're quoting GDPR, as I would have suggested GDPR works in your favour. If you google it, one of the first results is a discussion on here about how GDPR helps to now get an employer letter. My inclination is they are trying to suggest they don't want other case workers (the ECO han...

Hi all What type of additional docs are requested, and what would be a typical situation for them to be requested? A friend of mine has recently applied for a spouse visa, and has only just realised an older version of his wifes passport was used for the tb test, but then it was amended and the amen...

Re: Supporting letters for Spouse visa extension

Is this definitive? Specifically the bit about "uploading to the UKCAS portal BEFORE the biometric appointment"? Yes. Anything uploaded after the biometric appointment won't be considered. On page 2 of this sub-forum, there is a thread (https://www.immigrationboards.com/immigration-for-family-membe...

Re: Help! I got a girl pregnant in Madagascar.

I'm not sure that marriage not being something you "desire" is going to cut it, especially given you also talk of your "moral principles". She may be unlikely to pass the IELTS test yet, but she can learn. Given it sounds like you're unemployed from your post, your parents are probably the most like...

Re: Still waiting for a decision.....

Hi CR001 As I said, it wasn't the name of the employer I was after. Obviously, HO reserve the right to contact any employer when assessing an application and there wouldn't be objections to this from me. However, as we all know, policy and practice are sometimes different. I've also been advised tha...

Re: Is letter from previous employer really necessary?

I was searching for something in regard to the employer letter on here myself, and I stumbled upon an older thread but one of the more experienced heads here said the HO can issue them a hefty fine for refusing to provide the letter. Don't know if that still applies/ever did, but it was said by some...

Re: Claiming child benefit while outside the UK

^ tad harsh and actually inaccurate rssfed. What amber said, and what is correct, is that it's only fraud if it's now not reported. The definition of benefit fraud according to DWP is "DELIBERATELY not reporting a change of circumstances". It doesn't fall under "obtaining benefits fraudulently" as t...

How odd. Without having too much knowledge of this, could you maybe speak to them on the phone with your name, and reference numbers etc and try to find out what exactly they are getting at?

Sorry, don't think there were any riddles but as I said, I was a bit thrown when I wrote it. There doesn't seem to be an option to edit, so I'll write it out again (hopefully more clearly) below.

Three options: 1. Preferably stay at your current job and wait until visa approval, or 2. Join the new job and once you get 1st month payslip then add previous 11 months payslips from previous employer along with 12 months of bank statement to apply under category B. or 3.

Re: Changing jobs

Hmmm, interesting, thanks kate. Just to clarify though, do you mean it has to be £18600 or the equivalent of (as I haven't been in employment for the full past 12 months, I'm planning on applying after essentially 6 months employment)? https://www.immigrationboards.com/immigration-for-family-members...
