Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
I note in the link you provided that "The applicant must have sole parental responsibility for the child, or be the parent or carer the child normally lives with". I do not have sole parental responsibility for the child and because I'm frequently out of country on business, the child does not live with me. Would that disqualify my ability to apply for such change in visa status?
I have been reviewing my options and it looks like the only way I'd be able to continue my stay in UK would be to switch my visa to a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa. Am I correct in assuming that I would not be eligible to apply under £50,000 investment options when switching from spousal settlement visa and that I'd have to pursue the £200,000 option? And if so, can I have a partner in the business that has 70% share and I have 30% share?
I apologize for the lengthy query.
Thanking you in advance,
Thanks for all your help. Best regards.
