Hello Ladies and Gents
Since my last post about a vistor visa (which we decided was a bad idea) things have progressed very well and we are now going to apply for the "fiance visa". The amount of paper work is pretty mind blowing and has taken a lot of research to pull together an almost comprehensive list of supporting documents. I just have a question or 2 that i wondered if any of you could help with.
My OH is Ukrainian and has a daughter who is almost 2 years old now. The Father of her daughter (who is not me) is Moroccan and disappeared almost as soon as she was born and has never been involved in any way with her upbringing. My OH has been to court and has a court order removing all of his parental rights which gives her freedom to leave Ukraine without his permission.
It seems that we would need to prove to UKVI that she is solely responsible for her daughter. We plan to use this court order as evidence but we are unsure of the process to have this document translated/apostatised/notarised. My OH is not willing to give the official copy of this document as evidence because she wants it in her possession at all times.
A: Does anyone know what we would need to do with this document to make it acceptable for evidence with UKVI?
B: Does anyone know what other documents we could use as extra evidence that my OH has full and sole responsibility for her daughter?
My next question relates to previous relationships. Neither of us have been married before but would be still need to submit some kind of document to prove that we are both free to marry? Im not so sure how to prove that we are actually single and as she already has a daughter i didn't want there to be any doubt in the mind of the Issuing officer
My last question (for now
) When she goes to Kiev for her bio-metrics appointment does she need to have all supporting documents with her to submit? A very large portion of the documents come from me and I've noticed during my research that some people mention sending supporting documents to Sheffield. Would i send my part of supporting documents to Sheffield or do i just get them all to Ukraine for her to submit all together?
Thanks in advance for any help or assistance you can offer. It will be very much appreciated on this crazy paper trail.
