Its common knowledge among UK Immigration Officers that many 'visitors' channel hop to Europe usually France near the end of their 6 month leave to enter with the intention of returning to the UK for a fresh 6 month period. Clearly it ...

What makes one embassy think they have the right to go cancelling EXPIRED visas?

I have not read the post you mention but the Home Office will grant FLR in line with the relevant IED e.g. if you have a 4 year WP and get a fresh 4 year WP then you get a 4 year WP based FLR not 1 year WP based FLR.

AFAIK you would need to have lived together for a year before CIC even consider you to be in a common law relationship - visiting regularly is not deemed to meet this criteria.

It is unusual for the US consulate in London to issue any visa to 3rd country nationals residing in the UK on a temporary basis i.e you do not hold Indefinite Leave To Remain in the UK or otherwise an EU National. This is on the basis that you have not demonstrated to the consular officer that you h...

1. Visa will not get cancelled based on immigrant intent where such is based on the above application. 2. You will not be barred from entering the US. There is no denying however that it does add an element to your 'may not return home' factor which is considered at any visa application or port of e...

Cases that are not straightforward fall outside the published Home Office processing timescales. My experience is that they take as a minimum 12 months to be decided so there is nothing unusual about your wait. You may wish to contact your MP for assistance on the matter.

Paul, I would need to take another look at the judgement but IIRC I believe the HO arguement was that any relative could piggy back on this dependent of an EU status hence the chain effect position. It just so happened that in this case it was a sister but I suspect the same would apply for a spouse.
