Here are some of the details I mentioned in my previous question.
I am the only child of my widowed mother.
I am a British National for the past 8 years with my wife and child(5) who live in the UK.
My mother is 63 years old and has chronic mental health issues. She is also not physically healthy as she met with a car-accident with a steel plate inserted in her leg. She also has a dislocated shoulder. She is also diagnosed with brain damage due to a stroke. She cannot do her daily activities like take a shower, cook, clean, eat food etc.
I have admitted her to a 'rehabilitation centre' in May 2012.
I pay for her stay and treatment. This I can prove with bank statements that I fully pay for her treatment.
She has never left India. She only received her passport for the first time a couple of months ago.
My mother is wholly dependent on me for her needs.
However, I do not send money to her, but directly to the facility where she has been staying for over 18 months. They take care of her food, accomodation and treatment.
In my case, I never 'technically' left the UK. I am self-employed and only work in the EEA during the week and fly back for the weekend. I continue to pay my taxes, rent my flat, pay bills etc. in the UK. I only live in hotels 4 nights/week in the EEA. So I do not strictly 'reside' outside the UK.
Can you please let me know what documents will be required from me/mother?
Can I apply in the nearest British consulate?
How do I request for you to investigate the matter further regarding EEA family permit?
Do I raise a new question?
Does my mother have to join me on a visit visa or family permit in the EEA for a few months before I can apply for the EEA family permit at the nearest British Consulate?
Ideally I would like to apply for the same in India where she is presently living because of her poor mental and physical health.
