Hi it is our intention for him to live in the UK with us and remain in the UK. It is our intention to send him to college. Thanks
Answer to your Ist Question. Yes it is
Answer to your 2nd Question. Yes it is
Thanks but you have given me the answers that I already know about.
The reason I am contacting you is my stepson was issued a visa at the same time as my wife. By the time we have to apply for an extension to the visa for my wife my wife and son July 2014 they will have been in the country for a year. So what our fears are that at the end of that period they could ask my stepson to leave. The immigration company who has been handling or application has said that my wifes extension to her visa will be more or less automatically extended but that my sons application for an extension to his visa will be up to the discretion of the case worker/officer.
Now how can that be okay as he will have no one to return to in Russia, he will have no money as he is totally dependant on us and no where to stay in Russia.
I have heard that there is a way by going through the Court of European rights on a "Right to a family life". Apart from that a students visa is only a temporary fix or are you saying once he has been in the country for so long he can stay? Sorry for dragging this out but I need to look at all avenues. Thanks
I have rated your answer and given you a tip as well. If we apply for a students visa for my stepson can we apply to the home office as well at the same time?
Hi Can you tell me once we have a students visa for my step son can we then apply for discretionary leave to remain. Or what can you advise. Thanks
Good Morning. As my stepson has the initial two year visa that runs out in July next year 2014. Is it advisable to apply for the discretionary leave to remain first and we can show proof that he is totally dependant on my wife and I.
We can show proof as we had too do in the initial 2 visa application that he is totally dependant on us both and that the only surviving member of my wife's family, my wife's sister, can not afford to look after my stepson, and has no space in her accommodation to house my stepson. What can you advise?
