I have been in the UK since 2002. Got married to an EEA national in 2004.. got divorced in 2012. However I am yet to apply for my indefinate leave to remain as am waiting to get a replacement passport.. My question is, as a result of been divorce will the government consider me to be an illegal immigrant? or can i be deported?
I was issues a 5 year residence permit which expired in 2011... And yes am here as a family member of an EU citizen.. please note that i have carried out a divorce based on dessertion for 2 years
One problem is i'll have great difficulty in proving my wife was exercising treaty rights as she refuses to cooperated with me. She has since returned to her country hence my reason for divorcing her as i wish to continue with my life. What are the chances of getting a settlement or ILR without been able to prove she was exercising treaty rights?
She left in 2008/09.. can i apply whilst i wait for my passport or i have to submit my passport as well
