<p>Yes my husband has been given a job offer and it has houseing with it.he has excepted the offer. we sent the documents to the Entry Clearance officer as they asked on 3rd nov 2010 But the letter i got yesterday i cant understand. as i think its saying that they were not with the apeal papers or is it asking for the Respondent to send them within 56 days which is the 19 may as we sent them to them in september with my husbands passport and all documents.thats when they sent them back to us. and said it has been refused. then we appealed they said send more documents then we send job offer and hseing.they said we has passed the marrige bit and that we had been togeather 10 years.just needed job and hseing . sorry but im not good at this.i wish i could email u the papers to read would be alot easyer</p>

Hi - When did you last hear from them? Claire
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
On sat 9 april 2011. saying that they did not get the documents only the appeal form.But the job and housing documents were in there with the appeal form. i think they have missed placed them.so i sent again today. judge puff its stitting on the bench again june 1 2011.they have been overnited so they will get them tommorow.i sent them on october the 30. and they were signed for there end. if they do put them in the right place for him to see he will look and decied on june 1 2011. i just hope my brother does not pass away bye then .i sent all this in may 2010. hopeing that my husband. would b able to spend some time with him as they were very close.we were told that he could not go to vist while the visa was pending. just incase he did not come back. but how could he say and never work. without a visa .we tryed to do it the right way and gone wrong
Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi - It would appear that your only problem is that they lost your documents - sadly not uncommon. It would be sensible to telephone and ask them to confirm safe receipt. It is clear that the length of your relationship has been effected and it is only the financial side that is in question - so if you also have work opportunities it would be sensible to give those details as well. Claire
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
IFwe are still waiting along time can my husband travel to the uk to see my brother before he passes away .will they let him in if he has a settlement visa pending. dont want to book flights just in case
Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi - Provided he has a return ticket - and does return to the US - this should not be a problem. Claire
