Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, could you please provide some more information, e.g. what visa was issued? what is the nationality of the person concerned? Could you describe the situation in a little more detail as I didn't quite understand it from your query
Do we have a person with an expired visa (of what nationality?) married to a US citizen who resides in the UK (legally?) and the person with the expired visa wishes to know how they can remain in the UK?
I can answer this categorically. The person originating from Pakistan residing in the UK on an expired visa may not marry the US national residing in the USA in the United Kingdom. This is because the person originating in Pakistan is residing illegally in the UK. I'm sorry if this was not the answer you wanted to hear, but I can only provide an objective analysis of the information that I've been given. I do hope this helps clarify the situation.
You can rate my initial response, this will mean that the question stays with me and any subsequent follow-ups will be answered more quickly. It also means that Just Answer will pay the expert for their time, otherwise, they retain it until the customer rates.
I'll remain available for any follow ups you have.
If your visa has expired, you have 30 days to leave the UK voluntarily at your own expense before you face a ban on re-entry. If you have exceeded the 30 days you have to leave the UK, you will not be able to re-enter the UK. Are you still within the 30 day period?
Have you received any correspondence from immigration?
Given that background, you will be on the record and will likely be arrested if the police find where you are and the deportation process will begin in line with Home Office guidance. At this stage, I think it would be impossible for you to stay legally, and it seems that you must leave the UK and will not be allowed to re-enter. I would advise you to contact the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants for further advice. I cannot advise you to do anything other than what is legal, and in this case you must leave the UK and not return. I'm sorry to have to relay this to you.
