I am sorry if this sounds obvious but I lead a sheltered life, I met a girl in Nigeria on my recent visit and I think there is a real possibility that it might develop into something more meaningful and lifelong (touch wood).
I was just wondering whether it might be better for me to go to Nigeria to marry her and bring her to th UK or try to get her to the UK as a student - she is still young and reasonably educated - in IT.
I am a UK citizen, been married and divorced from a European (not for pali - true!). In fact I have been divorced for a few years.
Any useful suggestion will help please. I can obviusly sponsor her education and accomodation etc - I have done that for siblings anyway.
What is the process of a UK citizen getting a spouse to come and join them permanently? The Asians do it all the time, And are there any pitfalls for me if things dont work out? Which scenario will be more painful? I dont intend to keep someone under duress if the person is not happy and will not grass her up if she uses me to get a stay but I really like and I cannot wait to get her in the family - not for cynical reason but there will be a product from the union. She is from a neighbouring village so the union will most likely not end like my earlier with a European. Thanks
