Yes, he was & still is residing in pakistan at the time of applying and until i recieved that divorce certificate.
If by UKBA u mean the UK immigration officer/ team/counsulate/visa section in Pakistan, then yes, they would not accept it.
yes. i have attached a copy of the refusal document#
let me know if you have a problem opening the file
they basically said that the did not believe.
1. neither one of us was not in the UK a year before the divorce was issued-
2. neither one of us was in pakistan a year before the divorce was issued.
point 1 is correct. i was working in UK
point 2 is false. my ex. was in pakistan the entire time.
my personal view is that they interpreted this based on uk law criteria with out considering the rules that govern pakistani divorce- i.e. that a woman, can give written consent to the men folk- father or brother to attend the proceedings on her behalf.
sorry the purpose of the reply was to see whether you still think i should provide a copy of the UKBA letter.... i am more then happy to pay....
