French visa for spouse (ILR) of British citizen - documents

Has anyone tried to apply under this category ? As I understand a visa would be required (no "Spouse of EEA citizen" note in the passport), but the visa will be given free of charge and itinerary/tickets do not have to be provided. They do ask for the marriage certificate to be certified in the coun...

Change of circumstances while application is being processed

What is the best way to tell UKBA that you've moved house - email or phone ?

Also when the decision arrives, is it normally sent by a regular or signed for mail ? Just wonder if it's been posted already would it be redirected ?

Thanks

Re: Naturalisation Refused

Does this means that Going to court or not is the option to one who did this traffic offense? Or is it police to decide? Obviously not. If it goes to court = you have to declare it even if it was a fixed penalty. But you do not always have this choice. For example, if you get a speeding ticket whil...

I think there is a clear distinction here, between Joint Fee for spouse or civil partner's applications, which is £850 and a Joint Application Fee , which is what you are purporting, which doesn't exist.

As I understand the joint application fee = single application fee + ceremony fee for the second applicant. So although, as you say, these are two individual cases, but the fee they charge suggests the possibility that it will be processed at once. Otherwise what is the difference apart from the pri...
