Thanks to everyone who responded to the question about my EEA application in the UK. That first application was refused on the grounds that my wife was on the Home Office records as still married to her previous husband. The home office didn't know that they had divorced a long time ago.

I have sent a fresh EEA spouse family residence application to the Home Office about a month ago. This new application included my wife's divorce papers and all the other supporting documents. The Home Office has not even acknowledged this new application. I think they are intentionally refusing to accept it. This application's postage is tracked and Royal Mail confirmed that they have delivered it to the Home Office. Should I take any action against the Home Office because they are refusing to accept my new application. What can I do now?

  • You should just ask the Home Office whether they received the application or not.
