Hi everyone,

I hope someone can show us the right path in relation to our son's spouse visa application to bring his wife over to the UK.

The following dates are notable.

18/5/16: First Application made
17/8/16: First Application Refusal
24/8/16: First Application Appeal lodged
11/11/16: Second Application made
6/12/16: Second Application Refusal (priority)

In the meantime, the appeal date for the first refusal was set as 9/8/17. On that day when we went there, his case was put on a FLOAT and consequently we were not seen by any judge. The new date they have now given is 9/1/18!! that's another 6 months wait...

Is there no way to speed up this process? Our family have lost any hope and feel so distraught...

Thanks in advance

With two refusals you should get advise from an immigration lawyer.

I don't know of any way to speed up appeals. They take as long as they take.

What were the reasons for the refusals?

They made a phone call to his employers and a few VERY general answers did not match. They were absolutely negligible but I guess they were damaging nevertheless.

To speed up appeals, you need to have exceptional, compassionate reasons such as serious illness in the family etc.

Even if you win in January, Home Office can appeal to the Upper Tribunal (with the consent of the judge), which means more delay and waiting.

Hi you say you have two refusals ...one of the reason was that your employer answers did not match during the phone call.. was this the reason for your second refusal aswell may I ask??

And also did they ring your son and interview him aswwll?

I'm in a similar situation you see which is why i ask
