thanks- I understand the difference between the 2 good to know the intricacies
But my confusion or the emphasis of my question is more on my status i.e I am a british national working abroad
- do i have to come back permemnanty-?
-is it better to marry in UK and more "safe" to go through fiancee route to get full time setllement.
- I have money in savings in bank accounts some foriegn - can i use this to prove financially I am well-off ? or does it all have to be british.
-i do not have a house currently in UK -But will rent from my sister? is this adequate?
- What is status of children for spouse not granted visa? are they automatically british
yes - i would be - but currently no children - basically i dont want to be in a situation where we get married abroad but for whatever reason she gets rejected then the kids are not british- that would be pretty bad!
its hypothetical - we are not married or do not have any children yet.
final clarification would be good
"You don't have to come back permanently before she applies, it is sufficient for you to show taht you are a UK national and then execute a statement confriming that you will be returning with your wife/fiancee to permanently reside in the UK"
What do you mean by execute statement? and if I am in dubai and intend to return home in 1 years time so get married now.... can I still apply now and understand outcome? what is the time limit for actually intention to return and application form.
thanks for the good advice so far
