I found out my husband entered into a marriage of covenience with a British citizen while still married to me. We still live together as husband and wife. Apparently he used a divorce decree from a prior marriage to show he was free to marry. They've submitted an application for a spouse visa. He's done the biometrics and I theorize submitted his passport (it's not among our other legal documents).
I have notified the Home Office of our existing marriage by submitting supporting documents. We currently live in Canada.
Will he be subject to a 10 year ban? Will the Home Office follow up on my information? (I did speak to an Intelligence Officer from the Home Office, who confirmed receipt of info). However, I gather marriage is not required to apply for spouse visa (a common law union of the sorts could also suffice), so could he still be approved?
Can I apply for a visitor's visa to see a friend or will I be impacted by his pending application? My friend sent an invitation letter for he and I. Should I have her just send letter for me? I have no intention to settle there. I am a Therapist here in Canada and i'm very connected to my community. We're both citizens of Barbados and permanent residents in Canada.
Thanks in advance.
