Is the status more important to you than the person? Would you hate me for trying to earn a living decently or would you rather see me beg/or commit crimes like stealing or selling drugs? As these kind of "jobs" dont require any form of status check. Well yes you lied. You weren't making an honest ...

Yes they are increasing the age from 18 to 21. It will be in force as of 27th November 2008. You can get married when you like but if you are not both 21 as of the said date then the visa will not be issued. Regardless of if you marry before or not. It is your age at the time of application that mat...

I am not considering my previous stay but I am confused on which date can I apply for ILR. Why? Qualification of the stay period is usually from the entry date. However, here it is from the stamp date as you were already in the UK. Therefore 5 years from the day the HSMP was stamped in your passpor...

Will you please explain how you have calculated this? As I was already in UK and and visa was given to me on 17.02.2004 till 27.01.2005 means they had given me visa till 27.1.2005 for 1 year. You applied in the UK and the date of the visa stamp is 17-02-2004, therefore, 5 years from that date you w...

There is also the Marriage Visit Visa, where u get married within the six months, return home and apply for a spouse visa. I think she should apply for a fiancée visa. This will allow her 6 months in the UK and then you can get married. Make sure the marriage is done so it is recognised for purpos...

6 months is the maximum period permitted as a visitor - that is set in the immigration rules. Do not assume that she will be granted a visitor's visa at all - from what I've read it's quite possible she will be refused entry. I think she should apply for a fiancée visa. This will allow her 6 month...

If he does not have evidence of applying to the court for the order then he will not get another chance. He will be on the plane before he knows it.
