well, in my view the process of naturalisation isn't finished yet and noone knows what may happen when you go away (god forbid but due to an emergency etc one may get stuck abroad, even prison- worst case scenario). If you obtained the certificate before going, you are a Brit and no emergency can af...

what he means is nothing! ignore his advice, it's confusing. There is simply one ground for divorce where the relationship has broken down irretrievably due to, for instance, unreasonable behaviour. Again, ignore Obie's advice as it's confusing you. Once you divorce or start the proceedings in 2013,...

don't worry, also provide her passport or ID card and you're good to go. No problem with the expiring Tier 4 visa or that she only has 1 payslip, it is more than nothing :) If you can also get a letter from her employer in the UK it'd be grand!

Good luck and apply ASAP, waiting time is long!

Re: Permanent Residency and Citizenship application

Hi All, I have a quick question. I was reading somewhere that if you have PR you do not have to complete the 6 years history for EU citizens. I received my PR card in April 2012 but i was eligible since Sept 2011, do I have to complete the whole 6 years history or not? Silly me did not print a copy...

I am a British citizen, married to a Bulgarian citizen, we married in Sofia Bulgaria in May 2007, my wife relocated to the UK in September 2007, and she has been working since March 2008 since she received her BR1.

Passport Application, wrong section 5? Home Office London

I helped someone fill out an application for the first adult passport. In the place of naturalisation certificate, I told him to insert "Hendon Town Hall" as that is were he was issued the certificate (hindsight is a biatch). The person used Check & Send and the guy there never said a word about the...

It would be more difficult to prove you had exercised treaty rights in Greece to the UK embassy there, they would want s...

From what I know, when one applies, upon receiving the application, they place a stamp on the page where the Schengen visa should go (if I remember correctly). If it is rejected, they normally don't just give it back saying it's incomplete, they simply reject it. I will be honestly surprised if they...

mcovet, I think once you have paid you loose your leverage (unless you are willing to sue). They issue the visa and can say "Frau Evil's freedom of movmement is not being interfered with, so lets move on". Especially if the visa is really optional, as in this case. WRONG, the payment is, if anythin...

the problem is that you have the PR sticker which does not say "family member" etc. but I presume your RC is still in the passport? Then you only show this at the border and travel without the visa with the marriage certificate. And on a practical note, there isn't much anyone can do against a forei...
