I’m on a 2 year marriage probationary visa. What can I do to stay in the UK if I divorce?

I am married to a British citizen and have a 2 year probationary visa on the basis of my marriage. However, unfortunately, the marriage is not working out and I don’t want to be with my husband anymore. I don’t want to go back home as I really like the UK and feel settled here. What can I do to stay in the UK if I choose to end my marriage?

If there are issues of Domestic Violence, you may be able to regularise your legal status under the provision of being a victim of domestic violence.

If however the marriage has broken down as you simply no longer want to be in it, then you need to look into the possibility of remaining in the UK under the basis that there are strong, exceptional, compassionate circumstances including any human rights reasons.

If you seek to remain in the UK under this basis, then you will have to make a very strong case to the Home Office. You will need to argue the strength of your ties within the UK compared to your own home country and whether you would suffer hardship if required to leave the UK.

The Home Office will consider the following factors: the length of time the applicant was married before the breakdown, the length of time the applicant has been resident in the UK, the applicant’s age and the proportion of time spent abroad before entering the UK, and whether there are any children of the marriage.

If there are children of the marriage, it may be possible to apply for a different visa to remain in the UK, this is called “a person seeking leave to enter the United Kingdom to exercise access rights to a child resident in the United Kingdom”.

Furthermore, it should be noted that the British spouse or spouse with settled status can inform the Home Office of the breakdown of the marriage during the 2-year probationary period and may seek the get the foreign spouse’s visa cancelled.

The Evidence and Enquiry Unit at the Home Office which investigate such matters state:

“In this situation, we may curtail (cancel) your former partner's permission to stay in the United Kingdom. However, this will not automatically happen if the basis of his/her stay has changed - for example, he/she may qualify for permission to remain on a different basis, or there may be other compassionate or relevant reasons why it would not be appropriate to curtail his/her stay. If you write to tell us that your relationship has broken down, we will consider whether it is appropriate to curtail your former partner's permission to stay. Before taking any action, we will ask for your permission to use the information you have given us. If we decide to curtail your former partner's permission to stay, he/she will have a right of appeal, which means that he/she could remain in the United Kingdom for some time before we can consider removing him/her”.

My name is Florence and I live in Illinois, Chicago. I lack words to express my gratitude to Dr.okofu for the successful spell casting that he did for me and my boyfriend. I wouldn't even know how to thank Dr.okofu for giving me the second chance to love and live again because I thought that I was finished. These are the type of things that money can't buy and people can't describe. Great one your work is amazing from the very first step to the results. Being there for me whenever I needed you and giving me advice along the way until your promise was fulfilled. It¿s just a miracle that I found you and God pointed me in your direction. More people should know of your work and how wonderful it works and has worked for me. Thank you for everything and I have referred a couple of friends to you. Sincerely, you too could reach Dr.okofu on his private mail: okofuspelltempl

I think what you published was actually very reasonable.
But, what about this? what if you typed a catchier title?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added a post title that
grabbed folk's attention? I mean I’m on a 2 year marriage probationary visa.

What can I do to stay in the UK if I divorce? is a little plain.
You should glance at Yahoo's front page and note how they write post
titles to get viewers to click. You might add a video or a pic or two to get readers excited about everything've written.
Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

Thanks to the dr for getting my husband back. thank you Dr.Okakagbe for taking time to do the spell for bringing my husband back to me.
