Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello, my name is***** hope you are well today. I am a qualified Solicitor, and I will be able to help you by providing you with an answer to your question today. I specialise in UK and Irish Law. I am not always online but rest assured if I do not respond immediately I will respond when I return.
Is there anything else you feel is relevant to your question or anything else you would like to add before we continue?
Can you tell me your current immigration status?
Unfortunately, if your husband does divorce you, then it will disqualify you for a spouse visa.
Have you contributed to the house financially?
Like paying for maintenance or helping with the mortgage?
Is your name on the deed of the house?
So you have given money for remodeling the house?
You just told me that you paid for the remodeling of the rooms? it does not matter if he paid for the materials.
By remodeling, do you mean the interior design?
And for now, has your husband initiated the divorce?
If your husband has not initiated the divorce proceeding, I would advise you to register your "matrimonial home rights" with the Land Registry.
Matrimonial Home Rights aim to protect the party who does not have a legal ownership in the property, against eviction, during a divorce or breakdown of relationship. It is important that a party who has matrimonial rights registers them if faced with this situation, to allow them to continue residing in the property.
If you register this, it will entitle you to stay in the house even after divorce.
You can register it without your husband's consent.
It would be up to you if you would want to inform him.
You must first know if the property is registered in the Land Registry.
The Land Registry contains the details on whether a property is registered or unregistered.
If the property is registered, then a HR1 form (application for registration of a notice for home rights) will need to be completed.
If the property is unregistered, then a K2 form (application for registration of a Class F Land Charge) will need to be completed.
No, it is not the same. Only the registry with the Land Register will matter. As this will be attached to the Deed of the property.
I understand. I am sorry to hear about your experience. It must be difficult to deal with the current circumstances.
You only need to register your home rights, so you're still entitled to live in the house. Once registered, he cannot force you to leave until there's an occupation order from the court. As for your spouse visa application, you don't have to worry. You need to inform the home office regarding the relationship breakdown. However, it is not recommended at the moment since your spouse visa application is still pending.
