Hi uk4love, this is awesome, thank you! Very helpful! You're right, I was filling in the paper document for preparation before filling in the online one. Now I've noted your tips, I hope to submit it very shortly. Just waiting on one more doc from DH. Once we have everything, I hope ours will go as fast! *fingers crossed*
To all, I have few more random questions on the EEA FP application. (I'm using the paper app for preparation before submitting my online app.) What do you think about my answers?2.7 Details of previous passports
Had two prior passports as a child, these passports have been destroyed (
Do they need more details, because I really have no clue)5.3, 5.6, 5.7 Company you work for, employer's contact info
Self-employed (Do I list my own information, or the client that I do the most work for? It seems a bit odd for me to contact my client and ask if it's ok that I put their contact information on my visa application… What should I do?)6.7 Have you made application to Home Office to remain in UK in last 10 years?
Yes, IGS on Jan 26 2008 (Do I put yes? I applied for IGS after my student visa. My IGS visa says "Residence Permit , Limited Leave to Remain)8.1.11 EEA National Registration Certificate Number
(which number? My husband sent me "WRS Reference Number" and "WRS Work Card Serial Number"… One he received 5 years ago when he first entered/worked in the UK. The other he received this May for his current job, when resuming work in the UK after a long break. Which to put?)8.2.9 Have you lived with the EEA National in a relationship like a marriage at any time?
Yes (What else do I put??? What is this question asking? If we physically lived together before and/or after marriage? Or simply if we are married?)8.6 Do you have a valide residence card for an EEA Member country?
No (Will they scrutinize this answer???)8.7.5 Have you or EEA National ever been married or in a long-term marriage-like relationship before?
(Does this question include our current relationship/marriage? Or is this simply asking about relationships prior to our current one?)Part 9 Is there any additional intformation you wish to be considered as part of your application?
I was thinking of putting details about my situation and that my dad would be able to financially support me if there was any unforseen problem:
After graduating in late 2007, I travelled for a year. I returned to the US with DH (who was then my fiance) in Dec 2008 to meet my family and to get married. While we have been working on visa details, I haven't been able to settle. Since Dec 2008, I have been working as a freelance writer/new media consultant. Once in the UK, I aim to secure a full-time position as staff writer or editorial assistant. I would be able to support myself with what earnings I currently make, and I hope to secure a better position upon entering the UK. My father is willing and able to support me, If there are any unforseen circumstances. (Of course this would be better worded. And I am planning to submit a letter signed by my father and his bank statements. He's obviously very well-off, while my husband and I are not at all at the moment—especially after a year of travelling and traipsing about. I am worried about how our finances might look. While we have no debts, we have no savings at the moment—well very little worth mentioning. DH has steady income, while I have a rather irregular one. Will this final portion be necessary? Will this help?)
Thank you all for reading, I'm sorry this is a long one! Any insight on my questions/answers would be most appreciated!
