In the London property we lived for nearly 8 month,
and all the other time we were going to see each other, whether it was in London, Paris ( his family`s home), Lebanon ( my country ) etc...
it was nearly impossible to live more than that since I was only granted a tourist Visa each time.
and plus I have to work and make money , so I couldnt be in a country where I wasnt allowed to Work even if If I do hold a masters Degree in Architecture
We do not plan to marry not before we are settled and I find a job, etc...
we want to be able to live together, work , and then marry
and in order to do so
unmarried partner came to mind
yes, it is for that reason that my partner would not leave the UK, he is settled and have been working here for the past 3 years now,
in a very good position, and in a job that earns him a high rated income.
I would find it selfish from my part to make him leave this, and wouldn't allow it !
I don't want to come to the UK to profit from the system, but only to be with my partner. And it is devastating that I find it so difficult to do so.
so I understand that it is possible to be granted the family permit of an EEA national, but where do we apply from?
is it from my home country or from the UK? meaning will he have to apply from the UK?
Thank you for your Answer, and giving us hope.
