Hi All,

Please I need some advice.

I am a Non-EEA Family Member (Spouse) to a French National. We were married over a year ago in the UK, and we were both happy and lived in the UK. At the time, I was working and soon after I lost my job.

My wife got an offer for a job in France and decided to move while I remained here. I started a new business in UK, employed 2 people on a commission basis, and although going through the challenges of the formative years of any business, there are some signs and prospects of growth every though I have not broken even yet. (Just over 6 months).

Now, my wife wants me to move to France but am concerned that I will lose all that I have built during this time. Some top companies (6 of them) have already written to me that they're interestedin doing business with me in the next calendar year so I do not want to lose out on this.

My worries are if I moved to France, I might lose my residence, my company might be shut and my business bacnk account too.

What should I do? As my wife wants me to apply for a Long-Stay visa to france, and although I want us to live together.. I want to be able to travel to the UK to continue building my business without having to apply for Visa. Meanwhile, I don't speak french and no job for me in France and honestly, I do not want to depend on my wife at all while in France, it makes me uncomfortable.

What should I do? Can I move to France but able to travel and conduct my business in the UK with border issues as a non-EEA national married to a EEA member?

Help please! and thank you in advance.

What sort of visa or permit are you on in UK now, and when does it expire?
What are your eventual plans as a couple - to settle in France, in UK or somewhere else?
