Yes, for the past six months, but we've not met in person yet.
Thanks very much Tom.
Hi Tom - just one last quick question if I may - if he came over on a 6 month visitor visa and during that time I were to obtain my divorce, could he then return to his country and start the process to obtain a fiancé/marriage visa? This seems to me a reasonable course if the visitor visa would then not prevent him from going home at the end of the stay and applying for a marriage visa.
Many thanks for your advice, I appreciate it very much.
