Customer Question

Divorce eea
Submitted: 3 years ago.
Category: Law
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.

You would retain the right of residence in the UK if you were married for at least 3 years, including at least 1 year in the UK, or
The spouse / partner has the custody of child of the EEA national by a Court Order or
The non-EEA family has been a victim of domestic violence while the marriage / registered partnership was subsisting; or
The non-EEA family member has the right of access to a minor child and the Court has ruled that access must be enjoyed in the UK and for as long as is required.

Hope this helps

If you have another EU Partner, you are fine, you just need to apply for a new residence card if you want on the basis of your relationship with the new partner.

Hello , but if I started divorce after 3 years, my ex said don't have problems to assist, please advice, the situation , Thanks

Expert:  Nicola-mod replied 3 years ago.

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!
