Thank you for your enquiry.

You and your spouse may be eligible to apply for permanent residence in the UK so long as you can demonstrate that the EEA national has been excercising their treaty rights in the UK for a continuous period of 5 years and that you as the non-EEA national family member have been married to the EEA national for 5 years.

Of course we will need more information from you about your activities in the UK before we can confirm anything to you.

Someone will be in touch with you shortly to see how we can help you further.
