Re: Asylum claim due to domestic violence in India

I have no idea, what I thought was my very very strong case didn't go through. However, you won't know until you turn up for the meeting. My advice is do not miss it.

Re: Asylum claim due to domestic violence in India

If the HO has asked you to a meeting, then you must go and find out what they want. It's the law.

Re: Asylum claim due to domestic violence in India

Are you saying you did not attempt to kill your wife and that the arrest warrant is false, made up by your brother and father in law?

What did you tell the HO?

What about going and living in another country where you don't need a visa?

Re: Visitors visa

Hi Maria,

Yes you can, it's they who need to prove they will go back to their country. So they will need to show strong ties, jobs, family, property and not you. It's their visa, not yours.

Re: why can't I appeal?

Hi, Yes, you can absolutely say that your "friendship" has developed into more. And then apply for a spouse visa, but you will need to prove the ongoing nature of the relationship, and your intention to marry. I know, as I have gone through it, so when you get to the point you want to apply for the ...

Re: Inviting girlfriend to visit

Hi, I agree with everything kmaxie18 said. My Vietnamese GF was turned down for a visitor visa because we did not prove the ongoing relationship. The fact is we did by sending in tons of pictures of us together, obviously in different parts of the World and Vietnam, but they said because the picture...

You can also send a letter stating the income is for freelance work he does for the company, if he does not have a contract of employme...

Contacting HO Personel Using Email

Does anyone have the format for email addresses to the HO? i.e. is it first name.last name@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk? It's not this one as I tried it and it does not work. I have the name of a contact who is the MP Account Management Team, who is looking into my case, but I can't call him as the switch ...

Re: How to contact MP?

I am in contact with my MP, since I want to overturn a stupid decision, and it is my experience that the process is slow and frustrating. My MP wrote immediately to the HO after my contact, but the answer took 20 days, and had clearly not been considered properly, they just spouted what the ECO had ...

Hi, it looks to me like you need a good solicitor to fix that. It is a very complicated situation that would need to be argued in a very precise way by a specialist.

Re: Marriage Visit Visa

Sorry, what I meant to say was..... The only differences would be the location of the marriage and that she would remain there until the spouse visa was granted.
