Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello and thank you for your answer.
Unfortunately I do not have any contract nor letters from that particular employer. I can not remember whether we have signed a contract, we must have...
However there is one slight problem. On occassions I was made to work more hours than the part time allowance. Nevertheless I never got paid extra for that as I was on a yearly salary and the employer insisted upon giving more to the business as I was getting"enough for my little hours". You know one couldn't refuse as the chances of getting job like that were very thin (I am referring to the hours and the pay). I just hope that will not be a problem. My solicitor at that time advised to me that I was allowed to work full time pending my appeal for my new student visa (I wonder whether that was actually the case in such appeal???) Nevertheless he has never produced any evidence form Home Office to me so I tried to stick to my part time hours (employer's mood permitting).
I already had to prove to the IPS when I applied for my son's British passport that I have exercised the Treaty of Rights for 6 years and was in no breach of Immigration rules. They have never asked me for my WRS.
Thanks for your help
Thank you for your answer. Yes I will be applying on the basis of my P60s and payslips as I do not have a residency card. But with regards XXXXX XXXXX WRS, I will have to omit filling the appropriate point on the application and explain on the right page my grounds for exemption and refer to my pay slips and P60s for the time in question, i.e. before and on 01.05.2004, am I correct?
Thank you for your help!
My last question to you is with regards XXXXX XXXXX aforementioned point about full time work permission when an application for student visa is in the appeal stage. Was there any such law, regulation between the year 2000 and 2004?
Alena,Your latest question will require further research.
It does not give me any option to leave feedback, which is excellent BTW.
Hello and thank you for your answer. Am I to understand that as a student I was allowed to work part time therefore I was allowed to do so during the appeal stage? Kind regards Alena
I have just realized, that I might have forgotten to rate your service.
BTW it was brilliant. But I wonder I might ask yet another question with regards to the same matter? And also will I be charged again?
Thank you kindly
Good morning UKSolicitorJA
Iam still very unclear about my work situation under Section 3 whilst I was on the appeal. The thing is if I get this wrong the HO will only look at the fact that I wasn't registered for WRS and not for the reasons why I have not done so. And than they will refuse my application for BC.
Prior to my appeal I was on student visa and yes I did work too because one was allowed 19.5 hours yet I had no permit on paper because they stopped issuing them I believe in 1999. This is one thing I am trying to find out. Because if that was correct than I was allowed to work under Section 3.Most of my paperwork of that time stayed behind in my than partners house (who has turned out to be an alcoholic and women beater). So I have nothing to go by only what I remember.I have send an email to my than solicitor but I doubt I will get an answer.
Right the other thing is, whether there was any time limit on an appeal at the time in question.Basically I have launched the appeal in January 2001 and withdrew it in 2004 after we joined EU. The solicitor said throughout that my case was in the back of the queue because we would be joining the EU very soon. It was awful for me because I had no chance to visit my family nor to study. I recall a telephone conversation with him saying that if I wanted to I could go ahead and work full time as my appeal is so lengthy and I had to support myself (the forementioned partner was also my main sponsor). I was very hesitant to do so. .And again I have no evidence to support this, which I would have to present to the HO with my BC application. Was there a rule, which would allowed me to change the conditions when in the appeal stage?
Iam sorry I hope it all makes sense. I had nothing but constant p4oblems with the HO in the past, mainly due to their incompetence (we have been to court in 1998,etc) so I am naturally worried now that I will have to fight them again may be even loose the fee money, which I can not afford to. I thank you again for your help.Best wishes Alena.
Thank you kindly for your answer.
With regards the paper permits would you be able to direct me to any link online I could use as an evidence?
And basically on the application form on page 15 I should explain why I do not have WRS number saying that I was on an appeal, covered by the Section 3C, etc...enclose my P60s, shoul I perhaps mention the two telephone conversations i had with the WRS? etc, would you advise anything else? Or perhaps how I should word it? I am just so worried at this point I have even tried to cancel my appointment for tomorrow, but I am not able to get the £50 back. If they refuse will I be able to appeal? I am aware how difficult it is to do so. Will some of my money be refunded to me?
I must admit I have been searching several immigration related forums and there some not nice stories with regards to WRS.
Thanks again for your help and patience
