    Require some guidance on changing Visa status!!!

    Hello Raju Dai,

    I wonder if you will be able to help me with my issue. Basically, I am in student visa at the moment. I am planning to get married with my fiancee this year who has already got ILR. Once, we get married I would ideally like to change my visa status to dependent to her. However, she is just 18 years old at the moment.
    I have heard that in order to change my visa status after marriage I will have to make the application from back home Nepal. Is this true?? Also, I have read couple of articles which mention that in order to get sponsored by partner, the partner should be at least 21 years old. Could you please shed some light on it?

    Your help will be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    A Questions first ofcourse, the first one being how old are you?

    You are already in student visa? Why would you want to be dependant on a 18 year old. It would be better to stay in your own status than being dependant? I have seen many students do that, and end up in a crappy place. I dont understand how you'd want to give in your freedom and choose an "easier" way out?

    What are your plans after that anyway? Stop studying and start working? Thats what most of them do anyway. Think about it!

    Dear All

    I understand that you are age of 22 and your partner is 18. The government has increased the age at which someone can sponsor or be sponsored as a spouse to 21 for all types of marriage visa, effective from November 2008.It is part of a crackdown on forced marriage. This would raise the age of sponsorship for a marriage visa from 18 to 21.The government has also introduced a power to revoke leave to remain where there is evidence that the marriage route has been abused.
    The Home Office also announced that tough new rules will mean that anyone abusing the marriage visa system will be removed from the UK by the UKBA under a new power to revoke people's right to stay in the country.
    Your right to marry has been protected by Article 12 of European Convention of Human rights that you have right to marry whoever you choose. However, your partner is not qualified to marry that she is only 18. Whenever she turns to 21, you can marry in the UK or abroad and you can apply for spouse visa to join her in the UK.
    It is irrelevant what you want to do after your marriage as long as your marriage is genuine and subsisting that you intend to live togerther as husband and wife.
    Many Thanks

    Raju Thapa
