Thanks for your question.
To enable me to answer your question could you please respond to the following:-
We only moved in together in February this year.
I was seperated from my ex for 3 years,but the divorced was only finalized in January this year.
The visa I held in the UK was as a member of an EU national issued by the Home Office and before that I held a working holiday visa for two years.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for your reply , I don't know if I made it clear that I have been living in Spain for a total of 4 years, does this make a difference to my status as this means I have been living in Europe for a total of 8 years? Could it also help if I have British Nationals who can act as referees and who are able to sponsor me?
If not what you are saying is that the only options left to me are getting married or living with my girlfriend for another year in Spain before applying for a visa and what kind of proof of cohabitation would I have to provide?
Hope to hear from you soon.
