I Need Some Clear AdviseEEA2
Posted 10 November 2012 - 12:06 AM
I came to the UK for university and then got my PSW visa, I and my partner and we never thought about getting married or anything but now i have until January for my visa to be expired and have the leave the country. My partner is from an EU country and he has lived in the UK for a little over 5 yrs and he works here and I'm from the caribbean so now that time is coming closer to me leaving we are trying to figure out whats the best thing to do. We want to get married but not sure what to do such as do i go home and then return in a mth going to Spain where gay marriage is legal then come back to the uk and try apply for me to stay here or I was told about the EEA2 not sure what to do really as my partner he goes back home 2 times a mth as he goes for his university classes, so looking for some help as to what can be done. I was even told i could go into a civil partnership here with him and as he is not a uk citizen we wont have to show that we have been together for 2 yrs etc and i can get 5 yrs to stay here. Not sure what i can do, can anyone help?

Your partner might be a permanent resident, that depends on the length of his absences from the UK over the five years. Either way though it is possible if you show your relationship.
You might also be able to switch to tier 2 if your employment qualifies and the employer is a registered sponsor, but the EEA route is free and likely easier and you could do any work under the EEA rules.
