@ Monifé, so in the end you gave up the EU route and went down the Irish spouse route? I think that's what you've said. Yes and I regret listening to others (family and solicitors) about the EU route. I was quite young (22) and (most) of my family were against me marrying at that age, but it was pr...

I am dual Irish/British. Never lived anywhere other than the Republic of Ireland. We applied before the McCarthy case. I first applied for a permanent residence certificate which was approved. We then applied under EU treaty rights for my (then) partner/fiancé. After 4 and a half months of processin...

I too think Alan Shatter is a brilliant Justice Minister. He's made more positive and significant changes during his time than ALL of the previous Justice Minister's put together. I think the gossip and speculation him is petty nonsense, driven by political motivation just to cast a bad light on the...

They could also be asking for it because it has been 12 months since the first documents were sent in and they want more recent documents now so they are sure that they are still living together as a married couple. Exactly, that falls in needing more information about the documents . And your poin...

Your Irish citizenship does not confer any rights to siblings or ascendants. However, if you have an EU spouse and are entitled to the citizenship of his/her country, then you could make an application under EU treaty rights, although there are a number of rules attached to sibling applications and ...

We used Karen Berkeley of Brophy Solicitors as well and would recommend her.

Like the second poster, they could have been a little quicker to respond to queries or to return calls, but they knew what they were doing and got the job done.

That press release is from June 2011... So nothing new really. Irish Spouses (from what I hear on here) are still waiting an astonishing amount of time for a decision on their application.

Thanks everyone for your replies. I looked into both options. Adding him as a qualified adult on my claim would not work for us because it takes his previous 6 weeks wages and takes the average and it either wouldn't be much or anything at all. We are not going to apply for rent supplement because h...

You can apply to have him added to your jobseeker's benefit claim as an adult dependent. This can be backdated to when his work hours were reduced. When your jobseekers benefit finishes, you will have to apply for jobseekers allowance - this is means tested against his income, so he will be on that...

Flatpack, if you go ahead with the Spouse of an Irish National Application, you will be waiting a further 9-12 months. A better option will be to put a little bit more pressure on the Repat to issue your Zambrano permission. I would send in another letter with a whole tranche of up to date document...

If your spouse arrives on a " Join Spouse " visa then all you have to do is go down to the GNIB with your spouse, bring both passports, proof of joint residence and your marriage certificate (translated if not in English) and the officer will give your spouse a stamp 4 on the spot.

It will work if the person was born a German national (in Germany) and moved to Ireland, and after that, obtained Irish citizenship. They will have already exercised their freedom of movement by moving from Germany to Ireland, therefore, the German citizenship will prevail. If the person was born in...

He has to be living in (the Republic of) Ireland with you for 3 years in order to be eligible to apply for Irish citizenship. Northern Ireland is classed as the UK so he would only be able to apply for British citizenship after the required time and on his own basis, unless you have dual (British) n...
