Stop Family Separation! Reunite My Family In The UK.

My 11 year old daughter Betsy has been separated from her father for over a year because the Home Office refuse to let us be a family.

I was born in Northumberland and spent over 20 years in the UK. I met my husband Craig in Canada and we married in 1999. We owned a home in the UK and our daughter was born here

We lived abroad but returned to the UK to care for my elderly mother who is 82. Craig was advised to return to Canada to apply for his spousal visa, which we thought would be straight-forward. The Home Office refused his visa and he hasn’t been able to come home. Please help us call on them to reverse it.

I work 30 hours a week over 5 days at a local school. But the Home Office say it’s not enough. Craig has a job offer for a Production Manager at a North East Distillery. The distillery would like Craig's specialised knowledge and expertise in this field to help expand growth in this market sector. This position carries a good salary to enable Craig to support us.

Betsy has settled into school and her friends are here too. She is part of Hexham Girls Football Team, Athletics club, The Hexham Abbey Choir and a local Drama group where she is playing the Queen!

We have spent a significant amount of money on an immigration lawyer - all we want is to be together as family. I can’t leave my mother behind. She is already so much happier knowing she has us close by to assist her with her day to day life. Having her granddaughter close by has brought her much joy.

Families like mine should not be separated because of money.

Thank you so much for your support.
