EEA national age 28 from France want to apply for permanent residence. May 2007 Moved to Uk June 2007 Starting Working sept 2008 - Lost job(Preganancy ) Been looking for jobs (not registered with job centre and did not claim any benefits) Been living with Father also French national in UK who has been working since 2008. Child born in May 2009. been looking after my child (no benefits claimed) Started working again since 2010 currently working. When can i apply for permanent residence
My husband is non-eea national (But has been working full time since 2007) and i did used NHS during pregnancy.
Also I have been living with my father(french national and has been working since 2007 -who has been supporting me during pregnancy when I was not working.
I have continously resided in U.K. since 2007. I was also issued a residence card in September 2007 for 5 years. I would have gone into maternity if not made redundant in September 2008. Although i have been looking for work during the gap (September08-apr-10), mostly this gap was due to maternity+child birth and early child care.
From 2007 to 2013 total working period is 4 years 3 months, this shows that I am,,, and have been an active worker , how can the home office expect someone to work during peak maternity period, They can consider 9 months out from the gap and the other time i can argue that i have been looking for work.
Also I have some proof of jobs applications(emails) and had a couple of interviews during the gap.
