If your partner's visa and work permit are still current, sure she can return to UK and you can accompany her as her partner (do you have relevant visa still current?) As for indefinite leave to remain, I'm afraid she has been away from UK too long to qualify, and has to start afresh (5 years). The limit for absence is 3 months or 6 months in total. Only exceptional compassionate reasons allow absences longer than the limit, such as serious illness of close family member or absences directly arising from employment in UK (e.g. being posted abroad by UK employer). Pity you didn't leave UK after obtaining ILR, which would have allowed absences abroad up to 2 years.Hi All, I'm new to this forum and i have searched for answers on the internet but have not come up with anything, so i'm hoping that someone can offer me advice and information on how to go about it.
Both my partner and i were born in India and my wife was working in UK since 25 March 2005 to till April 2009. She was working as a Registered Nurse. We suppose to get permanent residency March 2010. In our passport work permit visa stamped and it shows she can work till February 2011.
We left UK in April 2009 and moved to Australia and she working as a Registered Nurse here. We really miss UK. Our all friends are in UK and we miss all of them. We have now both decided we want to come back to UK but we don't know how to go about it. My son two years old and he born in UK. I really need advice can we go back to UK?
