Ask an UK Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Can you confirm that you are asking if you can switch to a visa based on your marriage to an EEA national?
Yes, you can switch to an EEA family permit whilst you are legally here on your tier 4 student visa,
Usually where one non-eea family member is to travel to the UK they would apply for a family permit before they travel. I am not sure this is appropriate in your case because you are already here.
Once the family permit is granted the non-eea family member can then apply for a residence card, which is a stamp in your passport confirming your right to stay in the UK because you have a right of residence.
You should make enquiries directly with the UKBA in order to establish whether it is necessary for you to apply for a family permit before you apply for a residence card.
I'm afraid experts are not permitted to take instructions from customers to act privately on their behalf.
The form is not too complicated and if you have any specific questions which you think I may be able to answer on this forum then just post another question.
Alternatively you can either take it to your local citizen's advice centre or ask a local solicitor to check it for you. They would do this for fee.,
Thanks for your kind accept.
