hi, i applied for my wife spouse visa but its was refused. i have a son from her and he already got british nationalty . if she apply a student now to come into uk what the chance she can get the student visa?
State/Country relating to Question: United Kingdom
HiThanks for your question. To enable me to answer your question could you please respond to the following:-1. What nationality are you please2. What were the reasons for the refusalKind regards.Tom
i am british citizen.. reason of refusal i did marriage with her before divorcing wife in uk.
so what we do now?
Are you now divorced?Tom
i was divorced first one before applying 2nd but my mistake i did marriage devorcing first one.
first one is divorced now and 2nd one refused because of first marriage as they saying they not accept my 2nd marraige as a marriage becase i was not legally allowed that time to marry some one else.
Right. I'm going to opt out because the key issue is the validity of your marriage and there are other experts better in this area.Tom
It may take some time before another expert picks it up. Please be patient. Tom
but my question is not about that marriage validity...my question is can she apply for a student visa now?
The UKBA will view the student application with very great suspicion I'm afraid, they will think that this is a spouse visa application by stealth and will probably reject on this basis. You need to confirmation of validity of your marriage in order to sort out the settlement visa. Tom
HiHave you considered an application for a fiancee visa so that you can go through a civil marriage here in the UKYou will then be able to apply for a Spouse Visa based on the civil marriageClaire
whats the students rights if entry clearence officer refuse the entry on airport?
HiIf she does not have a current visa then she will be detained at the airport and returned to her country of origin.As my colleague pointed out with a husband and a baby there is little chance that UKBA will believe that she intends to be here as a student only.It would be more sensible to regularise the marriage situation so far as UKBA is consideredClaire
if she got student visa , and entry officer stop her to enter in to uk with students visa what rights she have then that time?
HiIf she has a Valid visa then there is no reason to stop her - provided she has given all the relevant information at the time she made the application.Claire

as you advoice me early about fiancee visa...whats the decument required from my side? do i need job from last 3 month or not?
HIYou need to show that you can support her and the baby and pay her medical fees - so a settled job would be usefulClaire
so its would be useful or its nesscery?
HiUnless you have a great deal of savings (many thousands of pounds)then it is essentialClaire
how many thousands? and if not then how many in job is needs?
Relist: Other.not replying
Hello,You would need to show that you can support them without recourse to public funds, There is no fixed figure given for such visas, it would depend on your individial needs.You need to ensure that your first marriage is legally over before you apply for the fiancee visa.Hope this helps .

HiMy apologies for the delayYou need to show that you can pay for your housing your food your transport and for your wife's medical fees since she will have no claim on the NHS.If you do this by obtaining a job them UKBA will wish to have evidence that the job is secure - hence three months worth of payslips and a steady £800 a month in your account at all timesClaire
so what we say in visa form about her current marriage status? married or single?
i already have a divoce 1st wife but as i told in my main question i did 2nd Nikah before getting divroce with first one so they refuse visa saying i was not allow that time and before you other lawer told me to apply a fiancee visa now but what as she have all decument with my name even her passport says my name as husband.
and 2nd question is do i really need a job before applying fiancee visa?
HiI suggest "Married (religious ceremony only)"Claire
can u please make sure it as we already waisted lot of time and money on it. as we also have a daughter which got british nationality by decent.
Thank you.Your second nikah is not valid under UK law as you were married at the time, you are now free to marry which is why you may apply for a fiancee visa for her to enable her come to the UK so you can get married in the UK and then apply for a spouse leave to remain in the UK.Secondly, you do not need a job, but you must be able to support her without recourse to public funds, if you do not have a job, you or her should have enough money in the bank account to support her. There is no fixed figure for this as each individual has different needs.You would also need to show adequate accomodation for her and you and and children.Hope this clarifies. Please click Accept
i have my own home so accomodation is not a problem, but i want to know how much money i need in my bank account...atleast any idea?
At least 5000 pounds may be a good start.Please click Accept for my answers
hi, as i asked u a question in past . to just remind you my question was...
i applied for spouse visa for my 2nd wife after giving her islamic divoce and then did Nikah with 2nd marriage but i did Nikah with 2nd wife before getting Englisg divorce so they refuse her visa saying that i was not allowed that time to marry with her and they not accpting that i am married with my 2nd wife...
my question is this time..... my wife is UAE at the moment with my british daughter and we want to apply for visit visa for my wife where her brother in law sponsor her as he have good job in UAE and have very heathly saving... can we apply for visit visa on these bases ..? if yes what documentation required? do they consider me her husband in visit visa or not?
If they do not consider you her husband for the other visas, they will not consider you her husband for the visit visa.They will look at her past UK visa application history I am afraid and the likelihood of securing a visit visa is small I am afraid and there is no right of appeal against a refusal of a visit visa.I believe this answers your queries
