Hi, what permission does she have to be in the UK?
she just has a family visit visa that was issued to my self and the family (herself and two kids) valid till 24th dec 2012 ... and the sponsor is her brother who is a british and pakistani nationality
As afamily we visited UK in july for 15 days
after coming back from UK she was upset as she missed the life there...
upon entering UK again with my daughters she was able to get my visa issued by the UK embassy in Abudhabi revoked
she went to UK with our daughters without my consent and knowledge
She first went to karachi pakistan with my knowledge and then fled to UK without my knowledge
her brother lives in UK with his wife and a daughter
we also came to know that she is applying for asylum and accusing me of domestic violence
when we were in London for a visit she and her brother insisted that i stayed there illegally and not return back
i work in a good postion in Dubai so i refused...i have lived in Dubai for last 15 years...we have been married for last 10 years...and she has been in dubai for that period...
she has never lodged any complains against me with the Dubai or pakistani authorities...although the UAE laws are very strict against domestic violence
i have good character certificate certificate from my employers, neighbours, UAE authorities
Are you thinking of filing for divorce or just require access to your children?
i require access to my children who she has kept incommunicado from me for the last 3 month...wasnt even able to speak to my 5 yr old daughter on her birthday..
i want my children to be closer to me either in Pakistan or UAE (dubai) where i can regularly visit them
i cant afford to travel to UK frequently
Hi, do you have any desire to move to the UK?
The reason I ask is that you may be eligible to make an aplication under the access to a child rules.
i have a very good job in dubai
If this is the case, you will have to file for custiody of teh children either in pakistan or Dubai as this is where you and your Spouse are ordinarily resident or nationals of.
You may also file for custody in the UK, however, as you are not present, it will be a complicated and lengthy process.
is it not a crime to take my children without my permission to London, and hold them ransom to break my will
would the UK government not hear my point of you before granting her a legal status in UK(where she is neither a national nor resident)
in case i decide to file for custody of the chiildren both in UAE and Pakistan...how would the UK govt. entertain such requests
as i said earlier she was able to get my visit visa to the UK cancelled...the UAE embassy in UAE have me a letter which stated "Under paragraph 30A(ii) of the immigration rules entry clearnce can be revoked if there has been a change of circumstances since the entry clearance was issued and this has removed the basis of the holders claim to be admitted to th UK.
"you applied for and were issued entry clearnce as visitor valid 24/06/12 to 24/12/12 but i am staified that there has been a substantial change in circumstances since the entry clearance was issued (ie your wife andchildren have sought leave to remain in the UK) , i therefore revoke your entry clearance"
this is the complete txt of the letter i recieved from UK embassy in abudhbai (UAE)
Hi, was this in relation to the revocation of a visitors visa?
I have to go into a meeting now. I will pick this up in an hour or so.
so in ur opinion ...what are my options
Hi, as it stands, I would suggest that you apply for custody in the U.A.E as this is the place that you are ordinarily resident.
i just want my kids to me near me...where i can support them .... see them on a weekly basis...
This is why you should seek custody through the UAE courts
what if she is applying for asylum or something...would this not make her case stronger..
legally she and the kids are still on my visa...
To apply for Asylum, she would need to show that there is a genuine fear of persecution or death in either the UAE of Pakistan.
Unless she can do this, and the evidence is satisfactory, any application that she makes will be refused,.
they revoked my visa based on her word or whaever she has produced ...is it not pretty harsh
she is asking me to give divorce...
and also asking me to give in writing that i used to indulge in domestic violence and she will be willing to come back and talk to me
she has lived in UAE which has zero crime almost
domestic violence an absolute no go area
no complaints against me
good character certificate from police
how will the authourities in uk treat this request
anything more that u can suggest
