I hope your former wife and child are coping well
Thanks for your care - you can rest assured they are coping well, especially considering the amount of money I am giving to my ex-wife each month voluntarily. It is more than a double average Londoner's salary.

If you meet the financial requirement with YOUR income, you only need to provide YOUR payslips and bank statements. You do realise that the financial req...

Re: One parent on ILR, can child get British passport?

Many thanks, does this mean NCS will make copies of the documents (including current passport) and return them to me straight away and then send copies to Home Office (meaning I'll have no problems travelling)?
