Hi thank you for your enquiry and patience.
What assistance do you need then given the information that your have provided? If he is coming to visit he will only be allowed to stay up to 6 months and he wont be able to switch from within the UK. What is your worry this time round?
Was he deported then or he is in the UK? When you say he is at Court is he applying to remain for his children? How old are the children and are they British Citizens
Has the Home Office asked you to be a witness? It is diffciult where you have withdrawn charges against him because under normal circumstances you would use that to show that it is not in the best interests of the children and the public for him to remain in the UK. The fact that he has been in prison does work against him as the element of good character has to be satisfied in all circumstances. If he is able to show that he is there for his children and he will be able to contribute to ter maintenance without recourse to public funds and that it would be unreasonable for the children to be expected to move to Iraq and indeed if it is shown that it is not against the public interests for him to remain he would most likely secure the leave to remain based on family rights. If you have evidence to counter this you can offer the home office to be a witness to assist them in their position of refusing him the permit. I hope this answers your question. Feel free to send you follow on questions after your rating I am still able to respond to you. All the very best
Hi, the evidence you need is factual and I am afraid but only you would know what your ex puts you and the children through to convince the court that he should not be here. I think if you read my message above you will be able to see that the evidence you need would be that which shows he is not there for his children financially or emotionally, he will not be able to contribute to their maintenance without recourse to public funds, he is of bad character having been abusive to you and been imprison. Even if you were to get a solicitor to assist or if the home office were to use you as their witness it would be you that says why you do not think he should be allowed to stay in the UK, the solicitor will not tell you that.
You are welcome. All the best
