Default Visa denied

Hi i was on here under the screen name mistboundforuk before and had applied from usa for 2 visas, one for myself and my daughter. Just wanted to let everyone know that my daughters visa was denied because they are requiring that you have court documents saying the parent traveling has sole custody and the documents must be sent within 4 days of them contacting you about it. 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.

Hmmm I am Canadian and applying for ancestry visas for myself and my children and have a notarized letter allowing me to take them out of the country and I also have my legal custody papers that state reasonable access at my discretion...do you think that will be solid enough? I would hate to lose 270 pounds x 3 for failing the application...

As long as You have the legal custody papers you should be good. All the woman from the NY consulate told me over the phone was that it must be court ordered sole custody document, no notarized letters.

Yea it def is. Took abt 5 1/2 weeks for them to make my decision because of my daughter applying. When it comes to children leaving the country, they have to be extremely careful. So my journey has ended here, wedding is off, all plans for UK are off....I cannot afford to go spend a couple thousand on court for a sole custody document and then re-apply for 2 new visas. Breaks my heart but the decision was not in my hands. Wish everyone the best of luck

Maybe you could call around to lawyers and find one that would let you give a deposit and then pay it off later in installments? Or legal aid even? I think my custody papers cost around $700. Good luck with whatever you do and I feel for you.

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

Yes i know, but the UKBA has told me that the court sole custody documents must b sent in within 4 days--4 days has come and gone as I cannot afford 2000.00 for the lawyer and court fees. I put all I had into this application process. They have not sent my package back yet so I am waiting to see what they say in the letter. The documentation I provided for my daughter was birth cert showing only me as her mother, notarized letter from father, pics from our trip to England, pics of her single bedroom in England. I have been on this site reading and taking notes for about a year and had seen ppl use notarized letters but unfortunately for me, they said they are not using them as valid proof that the child can be removed from the country anymore.

Oh ok, so maybe yours has been approved, and maybe they had not made a decision yet concerning your daughter and that is why then they requested you to send in documents in 4 days so that they could make a decision based on that...but any how, let us know what their feedback is when you get the documents... But what if they have granted yours? Have you thought then what you will do?

If they have granted mine it will be to me like they have denied it because i will not go without my daughter. She comes first. I will post what the letter says when I get it.
