I applied for 32-day visit visa for the UK and was given six months to visit my wife's family. Upon arriving in UK, my wife got depressed due to a family loss and was put on anti-depressants by her GP and counsellor. From this reason, I had to extend my stay to five months to help her with her recovery before heading back home.
It did not cross my mind to inform Immigration of the change. I left after five months. My wife is still on anti-depressants in the UK and I want to join her so I plan to apply for a spouse visa.
Will the earlier length of visit affect my new application for a spouse visa?
