Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
HiI'm not sure exactly what he stated, but based on their plans I would assume he stated that he wanted to come and go during the next 18 months or so whilst my daughter continued her education.Work - it's a funny subject! He works for an international computer software company, USA based but out-based in NZ. He normally works from home, and is continuing to do so wherever he is (because all his work is on-line he can work anywhere he has an internet connection; the only thing he has to balance is the time zones). Because he's continuing his normal work I would assume that he's said that he won't be seeking employment in the UK, and was able to prove that he can provide for himself whilst he's here.
Many thanks for that.I've passed it on to my daughter (reading it now), but I'll keep the case open for a little while in case I need to ask anything else if that's okay.In the meantime, totally satisfied with you responses - even if they're not telling me 100% what we wanted to hear
Daughter is quite happy with the information, and they are looking at making another application following your advice to the letter.The only moot point is that, having already said that he was doing his NZ work whilst here, will that go against him on his next application?I take it also that there's no mileage in the bond/guarantee idea that I mentioned?
