Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hi thank you for your enquiry and your patience. If what you had is a residence card as a family member then when its lost you have to apply for a new one there is no process for replacement. Your solicitor could reallu download the form so I am not sure what it is they are waiting for. You could alternatively apply for settled status but you have to show that you are dependant on your sponsor partner who is the eea national. If they are not resident in the UK your solicitor I guess will be looking to regularise your stay with them being out of the country. I hope this is useful to you and I would be grateful for your rating at your earliest convenience
it is not possible to get a copy of lost residence card, you have to apply for a new one. Since she is applying for different status that would be her justification for just applying for the carer as opposed to new card. Your solicitor I would think would have weighed the pros and cons of the retained right of residence and the permit based on your minor child who is still in school before deciding on the one. I appreciate your dilemna with the letting agency issue, however if your husband will not be civil and agree to support that he is still sponsoring you as his wife just so you secure your residence card you have no option but to wait for your solicitor to apply for the new status I am afraid.
