    Hi Thameur The solicitor's job is to prepare your case for Court and the barrister's job is to fight your case in Court. The solicitor will provide the barrister with all of the documentation and information regarding your case in advance of the hearing, and quite often the barrister will ask...

    Visa

    Speaking as somebody who works in the legal profession, until the new rules are formally announced, lawyers can only speculate as to what they THINK is going to be announced. I would strongly suggest waiting until the new rules are announced before listening/paying for any legal advice - how...

    CONI..

    They were really snotty to me in my local registry office regarding the CONI. Fortunately, they were much nicer in person but I have to say that from their attitude on the telephone I really wasn't looking forward to going. I was used as a "training exercise" for a new staff member who'd...

    CONI..

    Yup, you don't have to explain the whys and wherefors to the Registry Office. In actual fact, when I went to ask about my CONI at my local one they were very obstructive, refused to give me any information and told me that as I was marrying a foreign national in a foreign country it was down to...

    A few things that you should know about before marrying a Tunisian man

    Yup, we discussed this before we got married. Hubby also discussed with his family who have said our little family must come first. He has said that if we are ever in a position to be able to help, he'd like to - I don't have a problem with that, just as I'd help my own family if I was in the...

    I'm the same, Jane. If I'm off sick, I only get SSP and notice a significant difference in my salary the following month xxx

    Visa

    My immigration solicitor was very helpful, although I'd done a fair bit of the document gathering previously for my husband's first (unsuccessful) application. I honestly don't know how anybody, particularly somebody on benefits, would be able to afford to go out to Tunisia every 8 weeks. Does...

    Visa

    They let a woman's fiance go inside the embassy in her when she was asking for her CONI to be translated, but not me. I was just stating a fact how times had changed. It was my personal choice to go along with my husband in March, and I'd already read their webpage which states the sponsor is...

    Shengen Visa for Spain

    So, really? No Shengen visa required? All we have to do to get to Holland is take both passports (obvious) and the marriage certificate? Mel, do we have to contact anybody else in advance? I'm just worried that we would turn up, get on the flight and then hubby wouldn't be allowed into the...

    Visa

    First visa application in August, I was allowed in. Second visa application in March, I was asked politey to stand outside the embassy building (albeit I was allowed to remain in the grounds) with the security guard, because only the applicant is allowed inside. A British woman arrived with her...

    Visa

    People bringing a skill to the country does not apply in respect of a spouse visa. The rules are due to change within the next few months (likely June) introducing a higher minimum salary, which would increase if you have a child/ren, together with other additions to what is in place at the...

    Getting Married In tunisia

    I was a Monsoon bride too, Jane. When I went to get my hair and make-up done and the women were looking at my dress, they were talking about how "simple" it was. I loved it though! They thought it was extremely odd that I wanted to look so plain - because they threw in some French words though I...

    Shengen Visa for Spain

    What a palava! Is this the same for all Schengen visas or do the different member states have slight varients compared to others? My husband's best friend lives in the Netherlands with his Dutch wife and it would be lovely to go over to visit them at some stage ... xxx

    Children with a Tunisian

    Thanks Gem - not that I'm even pregnant or contemplating being pregnant in the immediate future, but it's just useful to know what's required for when the time hopefully arrives once we've managed to save a little money. I'm assuming that the Tunisian national applies for the passport on...

    Children with a Tunisian

    Do you have to have a Tunisian birth certificate for your child to get a Tunisian passport if the child is born in the UK, or will the Tunisian embassy in London accept the usual one you get in the registry office? xxx

    Getting Tunisians to UK - The Visa Thread

    You only need to consider a "flat check" / accommodation inspection if you're applying for a settlement visa, Najoua. If it's a settlement visa you're thinking of, your partner will need to speak with her local Council and ask for a housing inspection for immigration purposes. They will...

    Visa

    I was the first one that got his email address as far as I'm aware so he's probably been inundated since. Maybe that's why he responded so quickly to me. I just dropped lucky. That's no excuse though, I know. I'd emailed the generic visa email address 3 times and not received a response and...
