You can still apply. The documents are on the form. Explain that you are no longer with your wife if you haven't got a copy of the details page from her passport. Not a big deal.

i have got just a scanned copy of her passport but not the hard copy, and also what else do you think may affect the application in this state.
Thanks Victoria what will it amount to using your services?
Many Thanks

Based on my understanding from the UKBA website the marriage doesnt have to be subsistence for British citizenship unlike when you had to prove it when applying for FLR and ILR. For BC spouse route one of the main thing from my understanding is proving your married to a british citizen wether seperated or not providing you satisfy the residential requirements and other fators... From my research also, If the other party isnt willing to provide the supporting documents such as their birth and marriage certificate these can easily get from your local register office with a small fee providing you know basic details of your seperated parnter( you are married to them soo you should know!). Its perfectly legal since these documents are public records and anyone can get a copy of them families , friends,strangers, ememies etc http://www.mancheste..._certificates/2

kannyg, was your spouse actually born in the UK? If yes, do you know their date of birth, and where in the UK they were born? If yes, apply for a copy of their birth certificate.

Yes, as Jam87 says, birth certificates, like marriage certificates and death certificates are public documents and they can be obtained by anyone. They will post them to any address you want them to be sent to.

You can order certificates online: http://www.gro.gov.u...tes/default.asp

You don't need this if you have a scan of her passport.
