Yes my wife and two children have tier 1 dependant visas. and the baby was born in oct 2012 and we are yet to get him a passport.
The hr department in her office have said since her visa has expired and they have no proof that we have applied for an extension they cant keep her.
I was also specifically told by the officer at the cardiff peo that once their visa expires, my wife must stop work.
I was advised that I would hear from them in 2 weeks at the most. And the another officer said 6 months. Then I pointed out to them that I did ot have 6 months to sit and not earn and that this was an extension application and I have provided all they requested. I was not given a letter or a ref, nothing at all.
Hi,Thank you for your response. My wife and kids have not yet submitted their application. They were hoping to do a postal application as soon as I get my response(we were of the opinion i would get a response on the same day) so as we speak my dependants are still in possession of their passport.So what can be done. We do not want to risk £6000 and then be refused on the basis that the main applicant has not been approved.
Will I be making a vaid case for the expedition? given our situation.
Many thanks for your response. Can you please confirm if we are able to get a visitor visa(6 months) from within the uk.This is to give us enough time to tidy up our finances.sell our property etc in the event that we decide to return to Nigeria, the whole family.
Thank yo for your response. Do you offer phone consultations?
