my boyfriend is married to this Portuguese lady,they both live in the UK,and now she is asking for a divorce.His visa is still dependent on hers as they only got married less than a year ago. therefore, he just got the LLR. if she divorces him,will his visa become invalid? i am applying for my ILR soon,if he marries me,could he still be safe from the home office? we are going to have a baby together soon as well , could that keep him safe from being sent out of the UK as well?An honest,non-judgmental response will be valued.
I think a lot may depend on where your partner is from, and what type of visa he has.
If his visa is dependent on his wife''s then it''s likely that he will lose his right to stay if they are divorced, and would have to apply for a new visa.
I would suggst that he speaks to a specialist immigration lawyer, as the rules are very complex.
It is not possible, in the country, to divorce until you have ben married for at least one year, and I think your partner may find that he has difficulties as it appears that he was married for a very shotr period of time, and (given his relationship with you) presumably lived together for an even shorter time. This may raise concerns as to whether this was genuine, or a sham marriage designed to get him into the country.
