ok thanks for that information. I forgot to mention my wife has been in the uk for 10 years now on various visas. Only 1 occasion was she outside the uk for more than 3 months and this was for 3 months and 18 days.
This occurred because the home office said she HAS to leave the UK to switch from member of EEA (previous marriage) to new spouse visa and apply from outside. The embassy in her home country (jordan) had her passport for ages and it got delayed so due to their system and their delays it take more than 3 months.
Additionally, she didn't leave the uk when she divorced and remained in the on that Family member of EEA citizen visa for about 12 months during that time, we had a uk marriage and child. (the embassy didnt mention this as being a problem at the time and granted her the spouse visa from Jordan - they didn't say why didn't she immediately leave...)
So do you think she should apply under then 10 year rule or under the 2 year marriage rule? And finally after getting ILR can she apply immediately for citizenship or she needs to wait 1 year? (someone said since she's been here several years prior there is no need to wait the 1 year?) please confirm this.
i need my passport to travel as well so do you recommend the 1 day service? or will we get put on the spot which could be counter productive..
thanks. i'll make sure you have the highest feedback :D
