6 months and 1 week. She previously had a 5 year spouse visa but did not use it as we were working so much in US but it ran out 1 year ago.We filed for the ten year route as the laws have changed two years ago. ALSO I have worked for a big USA company and had surgery in April 2014 Which I will be 100% fit in 3 months. The company has paid all my Medical bills private-non NHS also they have put me on a wage retainer BUT it does not meet the income threshold as required by immigration THEREFORE if she went back to USA she would be denied and also not be able to apply for any UK visa for 10 years. We also have not taken any public funds. What I found weird was the Lawyer made our case bullet proof for the 10 year route but in the refusal letter they denied it on grounds that the children even though Dual citizens should return back to US with their Mother....unbeleiable as myself and the girls are British citizens. Hope this helps Thankyou!
Our two daughters education, they are 8 and 9 and will have an equal opportunity at being a professional and going to college.
Violence and school shootings- you are constantly worried
USA is now in the top ten most dangerous countries in the world
Yes I will once I am released medically in about 3 months. I have worked for them Since 1997
Not sure as I get salaried with benefits between 2700 and 3200 per month and get paid in US.
The thing is our case was based on the Non Separation Human Rights 10 year route and all that info was presented and not relevant. I have a permanent contract. At the time we filed I could not meet the threshold. Plus the children have been in school since July and starting a new term next week! Its complicated I know!
