yes i have. I have also considered the law firm information that you provided.
while im in the country on the 6 months tourist visa i can apply for the visa on the basis of my daughter?
also that firm is in london
im in harrogate
i just know that they can be extremely expensive just for a little paper work.
well then i have one last question and this has to do with my divorce. my wife had papers sent to me and i didnt send them in the allotted time. would the fact that she filed still be on file? it had been more than a year.
okay cool thank you for that. i will see if i can contcat a lawyer to help me with my daughters stuff. im surprised that you would be able to apply for that while on a tourist visa and cannot apply for a student visa on a tourist visa.
That is ok, happy to help. As the child option is a European case based on Zambrano, the European laws are more flexible and allow for switching whereas the UK rules such as for students do not allow this and are more restrictive. Also, the child access route also strictly requires that you return and apply but as it is a family case (rather than a student), there is case law which can be applied in the circumstances under human rights to allow you to switch.
I hope that helps.
