I am a British citizen, aged 85; my wife is a US citizen aged

Resolved Question:

I am a British citizen, aged 85; my wife is a US citizen aged 58. We have been married since 2002 but for a number of reasons have not lived together continuously since then. My wife now wishes to move to live with me in UK on a permanent basis and, in due course take out dual UK/US nationality. She would also like to be able to be eligible to take on part-time work in the UK. I am financially secure and can support her but she likes to have outside interest and sense of independence! How do we set about (and to whom do we apply) achieving this?

Where does your wife live?

Hi harry,

From the limited information that you have provided above, your wife will be able to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain as you have been married for more than 4 years.

Your wife will have to make an application to the UK embassy in her normal country of residence using form VAF4A.

Once she is granted ILR, there will be no restrictions upon her living and working in the UK.

I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly click ACCEPT.

Kind regards,
