Earlier this year
Krysia, he was given conditional card then, for two years, though.
In two years he'll have to prove that the marriage was valid, eg. joint taxt returns, living under the same roof, having kids, etc.
If he cannot prove it, he'll be kicked out of this country by a atomic kick. Unless he knows very expensive and good lawyer, he won't be able to prove that the marriage was valid and it will be considered a paper marriage.
I would suggest you take some steps, too, to prove that you didn't mary the guy for money, that it was real love from you and he was playing you along all the time. You know that paper marriage is a felony... you can get into trouble yourself.
Of course don't do joint taxes with him, prove that he moved out as soon as he was given a card, etc.
Then give me his address, I'll break his legs...
Not without problems? What do you mean?
Hey Wilczyco :))
It took whole year, becasue we were in special situation: our addresses are different, for we don't live together for a long time now, and it raised a red flag immediately.
We had tons of stuff to prove we did get married because of love, though, like photos, tickets to Poland, joint taxes, joint bank accounts, letters, post cards etc.
Normally, when a couple lives together and is simply a married couple, the 10-year (after 2 years period) card is sent over mail. We had to attend second interview, one that I was scared of, but even though we're not together any more, due to our stuff we had from the past, the interview went just fine.
Krysia, if the dude cannot prove any of the above, he's ass is already cooked.
XO to Krysia and Wilczyca :))
