Re: How can British Citizen exercise treaty rights in UK?

As an EU national, your wife and her spouse can go to any EU country to visit or to seek work but you must have enough funds to support yourselves and would she still receive the salary in Czech, if she leaves?

Is this also the same for PR for non-EU partner in that all we need to supply is passports and prove of union to get PR residence card?

Will I be able to claim child benefit and child tax credits or would this be a problem when applying for PR?

As a UK national, if I claim child benefit or tax credits under self sufficiency, is this allowed or would this mean my partner would be refused PR?

My partner has been granted a residence card of a family member of an EEA national for 5 years.

I just wanted more information about what Lucapooka said. Does someone who has PR in UK not have to be exercising treaty rights?

Quoting lucapooka "It's the EU national who has to show how he or she has exercised the treaty rights for the previous five years (or otherwise be exempt from this due to having PR). Only if the EU national has been self-sufficient on the income of the non-EU dependant partner, would there be a need...

To enter the UK you need to get to the border, show your passports and marriage certificate and they have to let you in, if you go via Ireland or France, I don't think it matters. It may be better to enter by train, bus or ferry as airlines may not let you on the plane without a family permit. Once ...

Your application would be on the basis of being a 'self-sufficient' person under EEA Treaty Rights, so this is the term you need to focus on. As mentioned above, you'll need to have comprehensive sickness insurance in your name covering the whole family, including your working partner (regardless of...

How can British Citizen exercise treaty rights in UK?

I'm a British Citizen previously exercising treaty rights in EU - spouse has entered the U.K on an EEA FP (Surinder Singh ruling)
What documents would she need to apply for a permanant residence card as I don't see how I can exercise treaty rights in my own country.

Has anyone been refused UK Entry?

I would think that a refusal would not effect entry as entry is an EU right but EEA FP is just a UK Visa in disguise flounting EU Law.

Does this change anything?
