Hi,

Are you asking about your wife?

If so, when did she arrive in the UK?

When visa did she apply for to come to the UK initially?

Hi Tom

I am asking about my wife.


 


She arrived in UK on 10th May 1998.

Hi Zahur,

Has your wife held continuous visas (ie. leave to remain) since arriving in the UK with no gaps?

Did your wife switch to a spouse visa when you got UK citizenship?

Hi Tom


 


I had a solicitor who was looking on this case. Is it possible if you could talk to him at this time.
