We have text messages, emails,skype calls, social networking messages (not facebook, but similar) phone bill. Most will have to have screenshots taken off the computer and printed (including texts, as the majority are sent via fishtext, due to high volume) with the exception of occasional phone calls. we have photos together from both of my trips to Ukraine, and some from when she was here in the UK in October, although, this is also a worry because she was supposed to be with her ex at this time, and not me, so maybe this would not be admissible for fear of visa violations (also, most of the above goes back to August last year) I also have online ticket purchases for all flights. I have however lost the receipt for the engagement ring.
Hi thanks for getting back to me,
Well, the visa she said she applied for was a marriage visa, she insisted that this was a settlement visa, as opposed to the fiancé visa, where she said that one (the fiancé visa) was for visiting and marrying here. Looking at the ukba website, it all looks a bit confusing.
As I stated in the initial query, she had the marriage visa from June (applied in May) until the 4thh of December 2012. She broke up with her previous partner in the first month of the visa, when she came over in june, she stayed 1 week and went back to Ukraine, but neither of them informed the BA the relationship was over, and in October she came to visit me after meeting on a social networking site in August.
Thanks very much for the answer Tom, it's much appreciated, however there are a couple things we'd like to ask, after consulting Val, she would like to know the following:
Would it be a problem to “come clean” so to speak, about her actually visiting me on the visa meant for her ex, as it states that there is a necessity to tell the ukba that the relationship has ended, and that once the relationship has ended, she must leave the country immediately and NOT return to see someone else, as she clearly did. She’s concerned that this will prompt a refusal and even being banned from entering the country due to violating the terms of her previous visa.
Also, when she applied for the visitors visa earlier this year, she did not mention me, would it be picked up, I mean a problem in our application? She’s also concerned that, upon arriving in the UK, she told customs that her purpose of visit was “marriage”, would this be noted by the ukba, and would they use that against us?
She stated that when she came to see me in October that she actually stayed with her ex, in his town, she wonders how to explain this if they interview her and bring it up.
Thanks so much,
Thank you very much for your answers.
Does this mean that we have a good chance if we tell the whole story about violating previous? Also, we can also supply screenshots of a couple of emails from her ex, admitting being wrong, all be it short, but still, it would be something, would these be admissible/helpful?
