Successful Appeal After Refusal of EEA Permanent Residence Card Application
Mr O obtained a Residence Card after his marriage to an EEA national who was living and working in the UK. They lived together happily for a few years, but problems due to differing outlooks on life became significant. The relationship disintegrated completely after Mrs O formed a new relationship with another man, following which the couple got divorced.
EEA Permanent Residence Application Refused on Failure to Prove Exercising Treaty Rights
After the divorce, Mr O continued residing and working in the UK. Upon completing his 5-year stay in the UK, Mr O applied for a Permanent Residence Card on the basis of the retained right of residence. His application was refused because he failed to provide the required evidence to show that his ex-wife was exercising treaty rights in the UK at the point of divorce and that he had been exercising his treaty rights.
