I am an Egyptian citizen and my wife is British. We've been married for 6 months, we got married in Liverpool then have been in Egypt since then. I just recently applied to get the EEA Family permit to be able to live for 6 months with my wife during which time I was going to apply for a residence card. Unfortunately, I misread the information on the website and it turns out the family permit does not apply to me because my wife is not a worker in another EEA Member state. They are 2 back-to-back rejections.
Now I understand that I need to apply to "Join Family Living in the UK" which I will do but I need to wait for 6 months until my cash savings are secure in the bank. During these 6 months, I wish to have a Standard Visitor visa which I want to apply for asap so I can be with my wife, I am only planning to go for a month now as I have 2 jobs I have to come back to in Egypt. I know exactly what papers are needed for the family visit visa, I have the money in the bank, I have accommodation in the UK and I have an expiry date on my trip due to my job in Egypt which I can prove. Is it wise to reapply now just for a normal visit or do I HAVE to have a solicitor? Any advice would be really helpful.
