Thank you for your question.
Please could you tell me what supporting documents your husband sent in with his application?
How many times had you met in person before getting married?
Did you provide evidence of this with hotel and airplane tickets?
Do you have pictures of the wedding?
I am trying to identify what evidence you have that may make the Home Office change their minds.
Your husband has a number of options.
Firstly, he could appeal but as you mentioned he is out of time. The tribunal does have discretion in this matter. I strongly suggest that he get a lawyer in the UK to represent his interests.
Secondly, (and at the same time as appealing) he could try to resubmit his application for an EEA family permit using further evidence you have suggested (the correspondence between you on facebook, itemised phone bills to show you regularly keep in contact by making calls and sending messages).
Thirdly, he could also ask for advice from the European Commission's Your Europe Advice as they could provide authoritative advice that he could then present to the Home Office as part of his application.
I can send you links if you would like.
I hope this answers your question. Please don't forget to click accept.
You can send them an enquiry here:http://ec.europa.eu/citizensrights/front_end/index_en.htm
