cheeka, how on earth would a letter prove anything? for all they know, she could have written, signed and dated it herself.

So , ...

bottom line, if your wife gets a visa, that's it, don't worry about anything else, speaking from practice, NOONE EVER asks whether the visa was issued and applicant still eligible. No letter etc, visa is enough, don't overcomplicate. A visa is not enough to travel with...... Speaking from previous ...

Fiiling in forms

I also wanted to know about EEA Family Permit. Is it good to state in the application that the couple (who will be traveling) will be working to save and finally be retiring outside UK.

Re: applying for NI NUMBER WITH Certificate of Application

would love to hear know what my chances are. . You have the right to work , the NI is only a number for paying contributions , if they do not give you one , then you cannot pay the tax contributions. It is just a formality , if you never applied , they would have given you one as soon as you starte...

I never once asked about his ability to apply for a spouse visa inside the UK . My question was only what would have to happen after the marriage for him to get papers (generic term) , you mentioned spouse visa, not me.

Thank you casa , you made that much clearer , we use the term "the plod" (among others) quite commonly in Scotland , maybe it is a regional difference.

Thank you for your reply , I understand that this could happen , and there is an age difference , but as it is a genuine relationship and a genuine marriage I don't expect her to have too many problems in that respect.
