Hello! I am a greek national (EEA- 24 years old) and live in the UK the last 2 months. I have found a job as a registered nurse (full contract - permanent) and I am going to start on the end of August. In a month I will get marry to a Serbian man (28 years old) who lives and works in Greece the last 15 years (by renewing his greek residence card every 2 years - not obtain greek citizenship). We live together 3 years but we do not obtain any official documentation proving this fact, as the tenancy aggreement was in his name and when it was necessary he made a statement to the greek authorities saying that I live at the same accomodation. We have plenty of photos and internet conversations between us and can also ask from our last landlord to sign that we indeed lived together in the last apartment. Also there are many people who can assure that fact.
We intend to apply for an EEA family permit (for UK) for my fiance after we get married. The marriage will take place in Greece and will be a civil marriage. In the meanwhile I will be working i the UK and try to rend an apartment to support his application. He is going to apply from Greece.
Is that the right viza for us and how much percentage of success do we have with the above facts (newly married and not much evidence about our relationship)?
How long will it take after we apply till we know the acceptance or refusal of the application?
What documentation do we need and do you think that is better to do the application through a Serbian immigration lawyer in UK? How much would that cost?
I am looking forward to your answer because I am really worried of the fact he will be refused to come here. You see, the economical situation is very difficult in Greece and I had to look for a job urgently somewhere else, so we didn't have time to plan our immigration in the UK.
I currently live with English friends, have a national insurance number and have my registration accepted by the Nursing and Midwifery council of UK.
Thank you in anticipation
I am looking forward to your answer...
