Yes -does he have automatic rights to stay in the uk? As a Green Card holder in the USA would have? Does he have access to the National Health system? Can he for instance apply for joint citizenship. I should explain that he is a 62 American citizen and is taxed in the US. I am also retired and am a British Citizen, and taxed and pensioned in the country. Any help you can give to help us understand how we would stand would be appreciated. At the moment I go to the US on a six months visa and apply for an extension. We own a house in Florida and when I come over here we rent a cottage for six months at a time, but it is becoming irksome. Can you help please?
