Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

On what basis will she return to the UK after the wedding?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
She will come to the UK initially passing through on the way to honeymoon in Portugal, then after that she will be here till November when she is going back to the states for Thanksgiving. After that she returns here again whilst our son completes his work contract. After that they are considering whether to stay in the UK or go to America . Our son has a rented flat and works full time as a youth pastor running a youth project in South London. Hope this helps.

Expert:  Clare replied 6 months ago.

I am afraid that she will need to return to the US to apply for a Spouse Visa.

There is also a possibility that she will be refused entry after the Thanksgiving trip if she has applied for a Spouse Visa.

Please ask if you need further assistance
