UK Entry and passport control

Jump to last reply

Hello guys I have a few questions and would love some feed back. I will out line my concerns below and feel free to reply.

I am British born and hold a UK passport. I have been traveling back and forth from the UK to US for some time. I am about to to return to the UK with my girl friend and her son and I would like them to stay for 6 months.

We have all the consent to travel forms from his father and the father has no problems with him coming to the UK for 6 months. We have the letter of consent to travel which outlines the dates for travel, we also have a photo copy of his driving licence and SSN card and this paper work has also been signed by a notary public to state it is a true statement of fact.

Anna my girlfriend also has notarized letters from her employer and mother stating she will be returning to the US in December of this year and that she lives and resides here in the US and that all her belongings are here to. The other notarized letter one from her employer states she has a job to attend when she returns to the US.

She also has two a financial grantor's, one being me and one being my father. My father has also stated this in hisa letter and provided his contact details if anyone such as UK immigration wanted to contact him.

She will be staying at our family home.

Now, here is where it can go wrong and here is where I need your feedback the most. I cannot afford to buy return flights at this time for her and her child. It's simply far beyond my planned budget so its my intent to buy singles and then spread the cost of their return flight's out over the six months that she will be staying within the UK.

My father has also said in his letter that he will bear the costs of her return flight if I am unable to. to buy them (which is very unlikely)

Will we have any issues as she doesn't have a return flight? My father will be there to pick us up at the airport and I of course will be traveling with her on the day.

She will have around $2000 USD in her bank account and we will have the statement notarized also (by the bank) to confirm those funds are actually there.

I am trying to do all I can to make every thing legal and correct. I do not want to risk any chance of her having a future immigration issue with the UK.

Thanks
