I met my wife in 2005 in the UK and move to France in 2006 and got legally married there. We have a daughter who is 11. we moved back to the UK in 2011. now she is threatening me with divorce If I don't sponsor her application for indefinite leave to remain.If I report her sham marriage to the immigration, what will happen, can they deport her? will they send a letter to cancel her permanent residency or come arrest her?
