My partner is applying for a spouse visa. I have children

This answer was rated:

My partner is applying for a spouse visa. I have children from a previous marriage who are aged 18 and 16. It stated I need to prove where my ex wife lives via utility bill etc. I am not on good terms with my ex wife so I would be unable to do so. What are my options?

Hi How can I help?

Are you the British/Sponsor? Do you live together?

I am sponsoring my wife's visa

She is currently visiting the UK

So as I understand you are apply for her to come to the UK on a visit visa? Is that correct and not a Spouse visa?

Did she enter the UK on a visit visa?

I think it may help if we can talk on the phone.

She came from the USA so she didn't have to apply for a visit visa

If she is visiting the UK on a six months visa, she cannot switch and apply for leave to remain as a Spouse in the UK.

No for a spouse visa

Yes but from the USA she can only enter for six months

She would need to return back and apply for Spouse entry clearance to come and join you in the UK.
