the first application in 2010 was refused on 320 (11) and subsistence of marriage and a few other points. Throughout both appeals to the first tier and the upper they didnt believe that my husband was genuine and that i was his vice to get back to the UK. I contacted my MP who got in touch with UKBA and they said to prove a relationship is genuine it takes time although there isnt a timescale. Second application this september we stuck with the same legal adviser that did the appeals and hey presto hes coming back
if you can look at my past posts from 2010 they will give you an idea.
