i am the mother of 2 children, born in the uk, and they have recently applied and received their british passports, i am on a 2 year spouse visa. however, i am looking to file for divorce.my visa runs out in june 2016, and i have been married to him for 8 years and 5 months. i want to find out if i am able to apply for ILR on my kid's passports, as i had heard i could once my daugther is 7. she turns 7 in november
I have booked an appointment for next week to speak with a fmily lawyer, in order to ascertain what i can or can not do in regards ***** ***** a divorce. I understand the need to plan carefully and have all information before i make a move. I intend for the children to live with me, as my spouse works out of town, and to be honest will be unable to look after the kids successfully, if solely with him. i would not have a problem with him having access to them or sharing custody.
if all that is checked and goes through, then there shouldn't be a problem, i assume.
i had even intended to apply for ilr based on my older daugther's, even if i were still married to him (reason being that he often makes me beg and cry before he does things for me) as i had been advised i could, but i just want to be sure that there is provision for that under immigration law and not just hearsay.
thank you Tom,
i have read through the link you sent and it seems to indicate i would need to have sole responsibilty for the child(ren). does that imply sole custody, and does that mean i would also need to show that their father is not responsible for them financially.
thank you kindly
