Both passports should be sent with the application and as you have a straight forward, you should get your COA within 8 weeks.

As much as the HO require supporting documents to be ''Original'', you can asked for your passport to be returned when needed(but not the applicant's as that would mean a withdrawer of application).

IMHO, a marriage to your partner would put you on a good ground for an article 8 application. Dont be surprised though, its a long route to regularisation, it's not encouraging and only if you can wait and be patient. How old is your partner's son? You can also plan to return home and apply for a sp...

Have you(both of you) considered marriage at all? Like Mochyn already said, marriage will give you some legal rights to your partner and her son.

If the HO is not able to return him to Somalia, I think you might have your way on article 8 but it's a long road love, as Vinny already warned, you'll have to be patient.

I doubt if the HO would asked him to go to Ethiopia or Kenya, as he's not a citizen/resident of any of those countries

I dont think his past should affect him but as you've been warned already, its at the disrection of the ECO. I will consider getting married in Pakistan if I'm in that position, then apply for a Spouse visa.

Its only my opinion, you can consult a qualified solicitor for expert advice.

I have read the relevent pages on the UK border Agency website and it says that I need to apply for an ICFN but I cant work out if I need to it before or after submitting my ILR application.
Thanks Casa, I was actually responding to the above comment, not even thinking it was SET(M).

Thanks.

I believe your wife can still apply for ILR in the UK in light of some recent judgement that I read about recently. The tribunal held that Immigration Rule 287, the one under which spouses apply for settlement (Indefinite Leave to Remain) does not require the possession of current leave to remain at...

Why I suggesed the COA idea was because he mentioned going to Europe to get married. I thought if he marry his partner, they might consider moving elsewhere in the EU for a bit and take advantage of the Surinder Singh judgement. I agree with Casa about COA being a ''risky adventure'' but its possibl...

Why not apply for a COA(though is being abolished soon), or get married here in the UK, then decide on what to do after your marriage.

A much quicker and easier way would be to return to your home country, marry your partner and apply for a spouse visa. Take Monife's advice, it's better to marry your partner if you are both up for it, go home and apply spouse visa(if there's no other issue, apart from overstaying). If you decide o...

The forms are self explanatory. Each of the forms explains the category of visitors that should use them. As you are inviting a family member (Cousin), VAF 1B ic the right form.
