Spouse visa uk relationship requirements
British passport holder here.
Hi there..i am stuck on what to do .il explain the full story
I met my partner 4 years ago online in 2013 ..then one year later we met in person. Our families were not happy with this relationship but we did not stop communicating and were still a couple.
We tried to get our families approval for marriage but they refused. We broke up for a few months in 2016. And in that time he applied for student visa for canada and got refused twice. We then got back together this year. And our families have approved and we can get married. We are planning to get married in january 2018. And planning to apply for spouse visa march or april 2018.
I understand that it may seem to the
immigration officer that my partner is coming back to me after he got refused from canada but it is not the case. We are both muslim and our families did not allow us to meet again until we are married. So it is in a way arranged but then again its not. I earn more than 18600 per year and have evidence of communication with my partner from 2013 till now. But we have not lived together. We are planning to spend more time in his home country once we are married and then i will come back to uk and he will apply for spouse visa. Please if anyone can give us advise on what the best thing to do is I would really appreciate and i can face the truth so please go ahead.
