Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
I know about the six months rule, I meant she'll stay here for 5months then travel outside UK, then come back and stay for another 5 months, would this count against her when she applies for the spouse settlement visa?
Won't immigration control understand why she stayed 5 months at a time bearing in mind the reasons mentioned above?
It helps a lot. It is this 'unwritten' rule that I was looking for.
