Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
My Husband was born in the UK on 6th May 1946.We were married on 22 October 1981. On 15 Dec 1981 I have a Home office Immigration stamp in my passport saying Holders stay is no longer subject to a time limit and on 23rd Feb 1982 I have a Certificate of Partiality added to my passport. This has been renewed when I have had a new passport. It was subsequently changed to Certificate of Entitlement to the Right of Abode issued on 04 May 2005 which I have in my current passport
Thank you. If I want to qualify will it help to remain in the uk for the next 12 months (or at least have less than 90 days out) or will the total days out over the past 8 years outweigh this. Even if I dont go out of the Uk for a couple of years I would still have this large number of days out in the past 8 years which are over the proposed limit. Is it likely they could be disregarded.
Thank you for your prompt reply. In the Home Office requirement guide its states that normal absences in the qualifying period is 90 days however 100 days would be normally disregarded but if other requirements were met then 101 to 179 days would be disregarded if i can show links with the uk through family or have an established home which I do have. If I applied in November 2015 I could show total absences of 497 days in the last three years in which case they would expect that I would have lived in the Uk for 5 years in order to consider.disregarding them. Your thoughts please
