Hi,

Thanks for your question.

If you have separated from your wife and suspect she may make a fraudulent application to secure further leave to remain in this country based up on domestic violence then you can contact the UKBA in the way described on this link on their website:-
http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/contact/report-crime/

It will be for them to decide whether or not to curtail her visa though.

Thanks for reply however by law can she apply under DV rule? I am tlaking about this link

http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/policyandlaw/immigrationlaw/immigrationrules/part8/victimsofdomesticviolence/

By law if I would be on PR / Citizen when I sponsored her would allow her to do that?

is that true?
Expert:  Thomas replied 5 years ago.
Hi,

An application for a ILR based on DV is for persons who came to the UK on spouse visas. If your wife came her as a dependent of you when you applied for an obtained Tier 1 General visa then I cannot see that she will be eligible to make the application.

The UKBA/Immigration Tribunal are allowed to exercise their discretion though so it may be that she is trying her luck in any event.

Trust this clarifies, if so please click accept.

Kind regards,

I have already sent a letter to second link but i want to make sure that if i should send email as well mentioned on the link page by you

Hi,

That link is for persons who were here as spouses of persons who had ILR or were British Citizens. Although you have ILR now your wife was not granted a spouses visa on the basis of that ILR - she was granted it as your dependent when you had your Tier 1.

Obviously you situation is complicated a little bit in that you have now obtained ILR, but I would call the people on my link and ask to be referred to the correct address to which you should write.

Please click accept now I have answered your questions.
