Hi, I'm presently married to an eea and I was issued 5yrs eea permit which will expire In September 2014. My problem is that the relationship has broken down for over a year now, but I'm scared to start divorce proceedings because I know I won't be able to retain residency in the uk as my husband didnt exercise any treaty rights. What I want to know now is if it is possible for me to apply as a parent of a child settled in the UK because I got children that are British for another Man I'm presently dating and he's agreed to support me if need be... what are my chances and is it possible to just switch from being a family member of an eea to parent of a child in the uk. Will be glad if I can get an answer. Thanks. Olu.
I will. The children are actually living with me.
Yes the father has contact and is active. He's British and yes I'm working.
