Dear Miss ***
On 18 september 2010 you applied for leave to remain in the United Kingdom as the fiancée of Mr. ***. An official has considered your application on behalf of the Secretary of State.
It is noted that letter dated 23 October 2010 and 22 October 2010 respectively have been provided from your fiancé and his solicitor, both of which indicate that no date can be given as to when a Decree Absolute will be issued with regard to your fiance’s divorce.
Therefore, you do not satisfy the requirements of the Immigration Rules for this category under Paragraph 295 with reference to 293(iii) and it has been decided to refuse your application.
In making the decision to refuse your application, we note that your immigration history is as follow:
You entered the UK on 27 April 2010 on a marriage visa valid from 22 March 2010 to 22 September 2010.
A valid application for leave to remain as a fiancée was submitted on 18 September 2010.
Your application has also been considered with reference to Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
With regard to your right to a family life under Article 8, it is noted that you have only been living with your fiancé since your entry to the UK in April 2010. It is therefore considered that the period established here within the meaning of Article 8.
Furthermore, there would be nothing to prevent you returning to your home country whilst your fiance’s divorce proceedings are concluded and then applying for the appropriate entry clearance to the UK once those matters are settled. Any separation between yourself and your fiancé would only be temporary and any infringement of your Article 8 rights in such an instance would be justified and proportionate in the pursuit of maintaining effective immigration control.
It is also noted from your entry clearance records that you have been in a long-distance relationship with your fiancé since August 2008. It is therefore considered that whatever arrangements were made between yourself and your fiancé when conducting such a relationship can continue until such time that his divorce proceedings are finalized.
With regard to your right to a private life in the UK under Article8, it is noted that you have only been in the UK since April 2010, this is a relatively short period of time when compared with that previously spent in your home country or elsewhere and would mitigate against any claim that you have formed such a life here.
In order to protect the wider interests and rights of the public, it is vital to maintain an effective immigration control. In pursuit of that aim, and having weighed up your interests, it is considered that any interference with your private life by seeking your removal from the UK is a legitimate, necessary and proportionate response and is in accordance with the law.
We have considered whether your removal from the UK will interfere with your private or family life( should such life exist here). Although you are the fiancée of a person present and settled here, it is considered that you have not been living with that person for a significantly long enough period for a family life to have become established here within the meaning of Article 8; you have also not been in the UK long enough to have formed a private life here. Your removal to your home country would therefore be reasonable in the interests of maintaining effective immigration control.
We have considered whether interference with your private or family life is in accordance with the law. As you no longer have any legal basis to remain here , it it considered lawful and within the permissible aim of Article 8(2) to seek your removal from the UK in order to maintain an effective immigration control.
We have considered whether interference with your private of family life is proportionate. As it has already been considered that you have no established family life in the UK within the meaning of Article 8, and that you have not been here long enough to have formed a private life, it is deemed proportionate to seek your removal to your home country.
In considering your case we have taken into account whether there has been any delay in deciding your application that may affect your right to remain here under Article 8, but we do not accept that any delay in deciding the case is significant or unreasonable.
Although it is considered that you have no established family life in the UK within the meaning of Article 8 but may have formed some degree of private life here, as you no longer have any legal basis to remain here it is considered that we are entitled to weigh such factors against you when assessing whether interference with your Article 8 rights is proportionate. Given the circumstances of your particular case we are of the opinion that requiring you to return to your home country, thereby interfering with your private and family life is a justifiable and proportionate course of action in pursuit of the legitimate aim of effective immigration control..
Your case has also been considered on an exceptional basis outside the immigration Rules. However, in view of the above considerations regarding your situation, the Secretary of State does not consider that there are any exceptional compassionate or compelling circumstances to take into account and it therefore not prepared to exercise discretion in your favour.
If you appeal, you do not have to leave the United Kingdom while the appeal is in progress. However if your appeal is unsuccessful, and you do not leave the United Kingdom voluntarily, you will be removed to China.
On behalf of the Secretary of State
Date: 17 November 2010
