There's no need to submit a further question to the board.
I've answered in a reply to your earlier question so you can just check that.
So, I cannot separate or divorce in England without breaching immigration regulations and therefore IF while we are seperated I met someone else there would be no way we could become partners in any way ?
Basically untill 2012 I'm reliant on my husband. Is this right ?
what would I need to do to get PR as in 2012 the visa expires and I will have 5 years on the Family Member of EU National Visa.
Many Thanks for your help in this matter.
If you found one else then it would be difficulty to make an application as the unmarried partner of that person because you must have been in the relationship for two years before making the application.
If you find someone who you think you want a long term relationship with and marry then you are better off staying until you divorce, then returning home. You can then make a further application for a visa application for a finance visa to get married here or spouses visa if you marry somewhere else.
In order to obtain permanent residence you have to prove you have been here legally for 5 years and your husband must have been exercising treaty rights (ie. living, working) here in the UK for the whole of the last year before the application.
Just to clarify
Your para. 1 means I cannot be here because if I were I'd be in violation of immigration because the visa would be curtailed.
The above relates to your para. 2
Your para 3 we both qualify as we are both in full time employment in England
So I'm in a catch 22 situation. To remain here I must stay in my current partnership and pray I am on good terms in 2012 to get PR. If it comes to our separation I'm out !! and as the government are restricting entrance of foreign nationals from outside th EU it will be difficult to return.
Yes, that's correct.
A decision about your curtailment (if it comes to that) can also be appealled so at the very least you will be able to spend some more time here before you go home and perhaps make a further application.
Sorry it wasn't not better news.
