Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello, my son is British, 28, lives in London. He has an American girlfriend. She was on an extended stay here last year between July and December, and returned in February. They were both interviewed at length by immigration at Heathrow and she was given a six months visa. They plan to marry and will live here (he is blind so has limited mobility). She wants to study and work after they are married. We are unclear about the visa requirements. If they marry before she has to leave, how long before she can return? Does the six months in every twelve months rule continue to apply after she is married, and for how long? What kind of visa would she need to apply for next time? Or is it better for them to marry in the US after her visa for this trip expires? Any info would be helpful. Thanks
