Dear *****, Unfortunately, this appears to be more of an immigration question than a family law question. There is an immigration law section on this website which you can refer to.
Expert:  ivorylounge replied 1 year ago.
Has she made an application?

This was always intended as immigration question. I am still awaiting an answer from an immigration lawyer.

Yes. Has she made an application?

Hello, i was wondering if she got the duel nationallity philippine/spanish passports would that make it easier to get into uk. We cant marry as she is already married and needs to get this annulled which is a long and costly exercise in philippines. I thought maybe she could get into uk with her spanish passport. If so would that entitle her daughter to enter uk with her. No application has been made yet.

Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
Your partner would have to live in Spain for a year before she could claim citizenship
Once she holds a Spanish Passport then she can exercise her EU Treaty rights to come to the uk.
Once she has lived here for a year she can apply for a divorce here in the Uk
