The refusal came and as discussed it is due to the home office believing it was a marriage of convienience The refusal letter states that we needed an interpreter at our wedding which is totally untrue, my wife has a great command of the english language and the sad - or funny in this case - thing ...

I also wanted to respond to that guy's rude comms. I have had many clients where they simply terrorised the UKBA (through my advice) by sending them constant letters, emails, faxes, MP involvement etc. Not even once so far has it resulted in the negative outcome. It all depends whether you tick all ...

Samelamin, I am deeply sorry to hear the news...the 2nd class post should arrive within the next few days. Let's see maybe it hasn't been refused yet (wouldn't be surprised). But if it has, they must give you reasons, your financial claim will still stand so don't worry about that bit. Let's wait an...

keffers, you know you lost your argument, why are you still trying to wriggle your way out. Just admit it and disappear. Also, no need for being condescending here: "these shores" and you "admire". The OP is not after your admiration, if someone has basic math skills and his self-employment is strai...

hey, you have done everything correctly.

But by the time you get your RC (i know it may feel you wil...

Now, the second issue is what you are going to say coming back from france. They will look at your eea card and ask where your eea national is? If not with you, you do not fall under the eu law so shouldn't be travelling visa free. I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but if re-entering the UK al...

what did you want to suggest with your post? I am suggesting that your information is not new and that while you may think of it as a cheaper and more convenient option to UK immigration routes, the practical reality for most people might be that relocating to another EEA state and working there fo...

samelamin, don't worry about catching your flight. If you miss it, you will successfully claim compensation from the UKBA! they will not have any excuse for not processing it within six months of application. There is a statutory obligation to process within 6 months (17(3) Immigration (EEA) Regulat...

There is nothing new about the Surindar Singh route. However, I can't see a SS application being approved if the applicant has not been working (so it requires specific economic treaty rights rather than any other type of treaty right). what did you want to suggest with your post? I didn't claim th...

in addition to also understanding that if we do get a clear answer from the UKBA as to what EXACTLY it is that they want in addition to what the OP provided, this would make it easier for other applicants on this route. Changing their status to a worker is just avoiding finding a solution to this pr...

my wife travelled via eurostar alone and had a schengen visa in. But the border official didn't even see it, he went straight for the eea card and stamped it. she asked if she needed the schengen visa and the guy said no. Now, I think that this may be a case of a confused caseworker, but if they had...

Re: Retention of rights/and BC

many thanks for the quick response, its rather unfortunate that they would think going though a divorce is something that ends with both parties ''smiling'' when they can clearly see theres a decree absolute submitted! unfair for them to expect your divorced ex to be ever so "kind" to give you her ...
