Re: PR refused

No I haven't, my solicitor decided to apply again with a cover letter explaining the issue. Just before the Coa arrived he told to write an email to my ex wife asking for her passport, he then sent a copy of the email and my ex response, where she refused to help. This time around he asked me to se...

Re: PR refused

I’d argue justifiably that a divorce from an ex spouse where there’s no amicability constitutes as “grounds beyond control” to provide evidence of identity. The key is to be make it clear the relationship has broken down and there’s no contact. It’s like asking someone who’s been in a domestic viole...

It might be helpful to say at this point it'll be helpful to look at my posts on the forum to understand that my comments aren't formed on theory but based on practice and personal experience as i've been through a similar journey. When an application is submitted under the EEA regulations for a res...

Re: PR refused

On the second refusal reason however, I'm not aware of any changes in the regulations that make it mandatory to provide evidence of identity for an ex-spouse when there is decree absolute present (if anyone has it please share). Regulation 21(5) , offset by Regulation 42 . (Has someone a warped sen...

Re: PR refused

My understanding was that the application for PR was "refused on the grounds that I didn't provide evidence of ID from my ex wife, and also the application was made too early". The OP did not acquire PR status until March 2017, however the application was submitted in February 2017 so that refusal p...

I'm not going to say try and forget about it, because its simply impossible to do so, when you think about the magnitude and importance attached to BC in this current hostile climate.

Re: ROR , divorce case pending

As Fatimah as rightly pointed out, if your EEA spouse was exercising treaty rights from July 2012 to July 2017 then simply apply for PR. Until a decree absolute has been issued you are in law still married. I'm sorry to hear you're getting divorced, as i was once advised too, i advise you to try and...

Unfortunately if some things don't get brought out in the press you don't get justice, that's the hostile environment we now live in.

Re: PR and Unemployment. Would I qualify?

I'm afraid no one can provide you with the reassurance you seek as your chances of getting what you seek is based largely on what you can provide to evidence your rights. The hostile environment isn't particularly helpful either. On a positive note, you may qualify for PR by combining multiple exerc...

As residence cards aren't mandatory to have, its not mandatory to have applied for a document confirming you have retained your rights following your divorce as long as you meet the requirements for ROR without applying for it. If you (non EEA) are economically active e.g working from 9/8/16 till 28...

Re: Permanet residence doc - does it lapse when absent for long

Thanks for pointing out Richard W, my comment was based on the OP's initial post(only confused)rather than the hijack of the thread by AB1998, as its unclear if they have a DCPR also which is a prerequisite to apply for citizenship.

I feel the Home Office haven't over the years enforced EU law appropriately including appropriate safe guards against abuse of EU law, notably ensuring EU citizens are exercising treaty rights and if not ensure they leave. Neither have they clearly explained how PR is lost unless you take time to di...

Hi Mizer, You should be okay to apply for BC in September, as you've worked out. Your economic activity i.e work after you became a family member in sept 2007 till divorce is irrelevant, as your rights came from your EEA sponsor exercising treaty rights not your activity. Being Employed isn't a requ...

I'm not sure that Child D has permanent residence. It's unclear from what we've been told. If the father was still working in the UK on D's 5th birthday, then D has acquired PR. Otherwise, the best hope is that: (1) The father left the UK as soon as he stopped working; and (2) D started school (and...

Hi Since the children have already acquired PR in their own right you can apply for BC without any implications for them. I'd recommend you (Non EEA)apply for BC if you meet the criteria, I don't trust this strong and stable government to treat eu citizens fairly as you can see from their offer. Ont...
