Thanks for the information.
We are going to apply for the settlement visa once he goes back to Georgia. Will my criminal record affect the settlement visa? I have been told it does.
I have read alot of different papers and I believe I came across it somewhere.
Are you 100% sure about my criminal history? I am very worried about it.
I wanted him to come and visit the UK first before we applied for the settlement visa so he can get a feel for my country. Do you think they will give him the visitor visa? Do you think the best course of action would be to apply for settlement now?
We met in November and got married in Georgia in December - Just so you have a little information on our case.
Thanks so much for your advise...
Sorry what do you mean by "his associations" ?
Yes I am aware of the english test - I will arrange this for him in georgia.
How can we prove the marriage is real as I know they will challenge the validity of the marriage? We spent 2 weeks together so far....
Thank you for your help

What do you think my next move should be? I will receive the answer for the visitor visa in 9 days - I am unsure how to proceed.
If he is approved - he will take the english test here and then we will apply for settlement. If not I will go back to georgia and we will start to apply for settlement. I am just worried because it is hard to prove the marriage is real in such a short space of time....
