You are a British citizen aren't you? If so the Greek embassy should not be asking your husband for anything more than proof that he is married to a British citizen (ie your passport and your marriage certificate). They have no right to ask for details of travel plans, finances, accommodation, etc.

Re: Migrating to EU

What nationality is your wife? Depending on her nationality she may still require a visa to visit another EU country (even for a holiday).

There must have been more to the reason than just the words "balance of probabilities" as all that means is that something is more likely to be true than not true.

Re: Schengen Visa For Spouse of British Citizen?

Or, no she doesn't according to EEA directives. But the reality is unless u want a relentless battle with every jobsworth on the way just get the (free) visa. I don't think this is strictly true as the directive actually says: "Family members who are not nationals of a Member State shall only be re...

Re: Citizenship ceremony overseas

The reason I'm asking is that I sent in my naturalisation application 2 months ago hoping it would come through within 6 months, as I'm planning on going travelling for several months at the end of August. However, now that there have been more applications than usual and big delays, this is lookin...

If your girlfriend comes to the UK on a fiancee visa she will not be able to work until you get married. You will need to get married within 6 months and then apply for further leave to remain. Once she is granted FLR she will be able to work in the UK without any restrictions.

Yes you need to provide all the mail spread over the two years if your wife is applying for ILR on the basis of being in a relationship (married or unmarried) with a British Citizen. I don't think there's any reason why they would be any more lenient because you have a child. It's not a problem for ...

The OP asked can his wife claim JSA because she is now actively looking for a job. As I previously suggested she can't claim contribution based JSA because she has made no N.I. contributions. They may be able to claim income based benefits but their eligibility would be based on their current joint ...

As a spouse of a British citizen you have to be in the UK 3 years before you can apply for British citizenship. You can actually apply for citizenship straight after you receive ILR if you have been in the country long enough. Once your naturalisation has been approved you have to attend a citizensh...

t is there any requirements that a married couple can not live in a single bed and has to have a double bed? Dunno about single bed, but I don't think there is a requirement to sleep in the same room. I know a few families where husband and wife sleep in separate rooms due to husband's loud snoring...

Re: Two Questions, probably easily answered.

My fiance NEVER keeps bank statements. Something you both need to consider is that when you come to apply for ILR in a couple of years time you need 20 letters or other documents ideally addressed to you jointly from at least 5 different sources spread over the whole 2 years. If you've thrown all y...

The referee may be contacted and interviewed so you do need to choose someone who really does know your husband. Knowing the referee just sociably is fine. The list of acceptable referees is on this link, and teachers are on the list http://www.bia.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecontent/documents/policyandla...

Just provide them with the address of the accommodation (hotel, etc) that you are intending to book. If you don't end up booking that accommodation (it's full or you change your mind) it doesn't seem to matter.
