What visa is she currently on?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

My future wifes visa is a six month visitors visa.She arrived here on the 14th June 2014 it is valid until 14th December 2014. I would like to know what I have to do to enable her to stay in this country has my wife.

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
I am afraid no, she is not allowed to switch to a spouse visa even if she marries you as she is on a visit visa
She would need to go back home and apply for a spouse settlement visa. She is also not permitted to marry you on a visitor visa as this visa is strictly for visiting, not getting married.
