Revisiting The FLR(M)

It’s nearing that time. In October 2014, much to our surprise, our FLR(M) visa was granted, permitting me right to reside in the UK for 2.5 years. Two years have almost come and passed us by in a whirlwind of life and we’re in the process of gathering documentation for the extension. There are two […]

Following Up on the #MMCase

Okay, it has been much delayed, I know. I’ve been wrapped up in my own little world, it seems, for some time now and I missed the news that had been announced… well back in April. In my defence, it isn’t an actual ruling by the supreme court, so – as with a lot of […]

#MMCase Caution

Disclaimer: I am an armchair critic who did not even attend the hearing of the MM case in the Supreme Court. Going off of what we learned from the Court of Appeal’s ruling, I am not hedging any bets either way with how things are going to go. Judges are a special brand of people […]

Family Visa Refusal Letter (Submitted by Golden-Eye)

Fingers, toes, all crossed please!” For many, this journey has been two years in the making – since the new rules came into effect in June 2012 (for a grand total of 3,641 […]

First Anniversary for Immigrants: AKA – Life on Hold

My Husband and I were married very happily on the 30th of April 2013, as of the 12th of June, we will have been waiting to hear back on my FLR(M) Visa application for a year. It should go without saying, but I’ll say it anyway: The Immigration is a putrid mess. All that aside, […]
