There was no way I could get a court document that fast. It cannot be a notarized letter anymore saying the other parent gives permission.....and the UKBA had phoned me up to talk to me regarding this. Just letting any other parents out there planning on taking children know whats going on before you waste your money.
Hello mistheuk, am sorry to hear about your visa denial. Why can't you try to appeal? What evidence of sole responsibility did you submitt for your daughter? Also was your visa issued or denied too? If it was denied what was the cause/reasons given by ECO for denial? Maybe if you gave further information people on here can guide you accordingly.....some applications have been denied but then when appealed overturned. Please give us more information so that we can give advise...some of us are going through the same but have been following this forum for some time, and I can say it is very helpful. Do not give up just yet
