My wife and her son are Kenyan nationals. My wife left last July 14th and I informed the Home Office. She is still working and living locally. The HO tell me that their visas are out on 8 March 2008.

I have not been petitioned. I have not been asked for any settlement. How much damage can she do between now and the 8th of March?

Should she leave the country, what is the likelihood of her pursuing the matter from Kenya?

How long is a piece of string.

I feel some relief in posting this but am not expecting anyone to have a crystal ball.

Thanks for listenting

It is possible to be petitioned from abroad, but if she's def..going back better for you to get it sorted asap.
