hmm - I understand that applying at the age of 65 would be better. However, I am inclined to apply as it is difficult and may even be illegal to continue staying where he is without employment for another 6 months. I'll repeat my earlier comment which is directly from the UK immigration rules - to ...

Re: Fiance Visa?

From what I've read I understand that it's important to make some progress with wedding preparations, however tentative - I can certainly do that now, too. Some people think it is, though we had no wedding preparations at all and it didn't cause us any problems. Without knowing when her visa is goi...

Re: Fiance Visa?

And also in the six months we've been apart we've spoken every day on the phone but I've been using an international phone card so her number in Korea doesn't show up - would that be an issue? I've sent her cards every couple of weeks too, if that would help. For the fiancee visa all you need to do...

iii) since he has now lost his job, I will be making regular contributions to him by means of a wire transfer It's not just that you will be making contributions to him, it whether he's wholly or mainly dependent on those contributions. Did your father make any plans for his retirement? (pension, s...

djb123, Thanks for your reply. Would it be better to wait for until he is 65 ? To apply under the age of 65 he would have to be "living alone outside the United Kingdom in the most exceptional compassionate circumstances", so definately best to wait until he is 65. But does he/you meet the other cr...

As he is still under 65 and as he's been working until now so not mainly financially dependent on you, I would suspect it is highly unlikely that he would be granted a visa.

Unmarried partner visas are hard to get, and to get them you have to prove that you have been living together for at least the last 2 years in a relationship like a marriage so she stands no chance of getting one legally.

no 2 is not an option, as you have to apply.

Without knowing your full details it's difficult to say if 1 will work, though if you can afford the visa fee why not try it first, and if it doesn't go for 3?

The only problem with applying for a tourist visa instead of dependent visa is that as both you and your wife have longer term visas they might think there is a possibility that they will overstay and therefore refuse the visa. Make sure you provide evidence if you can to show why your wife and chil...

Nope - six months in twelve otherwise she'll be bounced and no visa ever, exiting and reentering is a common trick easily spotted - visit visa is just that - a visit not an epic. If she is visa national (and therefore needs to obtain entry clearance prior to coming to the UK) and it is her first UK...

This may not be true in this case as they published the change in the rules to give 27 months rather than 24 months on the 29th July 2008.

It's not actually 28 days before your visa expires, it's 28 days before the day you would have been in the UK 2 years. So in your case you can apply for ILR any time from the 9th August until the date your visa expires.

You need to leave the UK before your visitor visa expires. Also I don't think you will be entitled to free NHS treatment, so if you did give birth here you may well receive a large bill. You are better to return home and apply for a fiancee visa (you've asked about it in other threads) and get marri...
