If we get married in Canada, how long does it generally take to be allowed back in the UK with permission to work? Does Mitch have to be working in the UK to get the spousal visa, while I am waiting in Canada? As soon as your spousal visa is approved, you can enter and work. Yes he has to be workin...

She will not be able to re-enter the UK on her existing visa as it would have expired. They may let her re-enter as a visitor with a new 'stamp'. Does anybody have any experience with this? I wouldn't like to take a chance that they might let you into the country. We're planning on booking the Cana...

Try reading vinny's links. It's not just having a two year relationship, it's about living together and having a relationship akin to marriage/civil partnership for at least two years. What evidence have you got to show this? Really not a good idea to overstay and that is likely to make things diffi...

you need more than proof of living together, you need proof that you are in a relationship like a marriage which means joint financial commitments, etc. i think the rules that it has to be over 2 years are set in stone so prepare yourself to be refused. my advice to you would be to have a think abou...

I will add though that if you did get avisa issued by the french embassy it should allow you into spain first.

not sure I would recommend it as it may limit your chances of getting a visa from the french embassy in the future.

If you are talking about registration then none will be refunded. If you are talking about naturalisation then the cost of the cermony will be refunded (use to be £80, though might have increased).

Anytime from 20th June 2010 onwards No, a spouse of a British Citizen doesn't have to wait for a year after they have ILR before applying, but they do have to be in the UK 3 years. So the 14th July 2010 is probably the earliest as I guess you have no legal stay between 4th June 2007 and 13th July 2...

One other thing, did you realise that even with a 2 year visa, she really should only stay 6 months in any 12 month period? So when she is staying for 6 months at a time, a 2 year visa is actually more expensive than two 6 month visas. Thanks for your reply. Yes, I do know that she could stay for m...

Personally I reckon reasons 1 and 2 are only sub-reasons for the refusal, and wouldn't have caused the ECO to reject your mother's application on their own - the ECO mentioned them just to strengthen his case for the refusal. Not really sure what you can do, as very difficult to prove that your moth...

he shouldn't have a 27 month spouse visa if you aren't married. he should have a 6 month fiance visa or maybe a 27 (I think) unmarried partners visa if you have been living together for more than a couple of years.

Best plan is come on visit visa, take the KOL test (knowledge of life) and return to USA. Then apply for ILE, cost about £820. Citizenship after one year in UK, cost about £720.
