Marriage certificate
My wife and I married in London (in Lewisham) on 3 March 1972. We do not have an original copy of the marriage certificate (#235). Can you help us get one stamped officially?

Thank you.

Certificate of Good Conduct
Hello Sir/Madam
I am a British citizen who was married to a US citizen for twenty years and living in Kentucky. In 2010 my wife died of cancer and a year later I returned to live in England. I recently moved to Sheffield in South Yorkshire where I am temporarily living with my brother and sister in law. My sister in law is a child minder and is required by a government agency called Ofsted to get a Certificate of Good Conduct on me for the last five years. This goes back to 2008 while I was living in Kentucky. I therefore need this Certificate of Good Conduct for the years 2008 to July 2011 when I left the USA and returned to England. Please contact me at mwatts_156@yahoo.com Thank you.

Spouse Visa
I am a British Citizen and have lived in United States with my American Citizen husband for 35yrs
We would like to retire in England as I still have
family there. How would we apply for a spouse visa
and what income would be required. Our social security amounts to approximately $24,000 per annum.
Would this count with the addition of savings. If so
what would be the total amount required for us
to permanently reside in England? Thank you.

UK Asylum Request being made by Miss Bayo Elizabeth Cary AA BA MLIS for herself and her 3 children: Hadiya Elizabeth, Omari Jonathan, and Nadira Helena
08-27-2013 To Whom It May Concern: It is my intention to seek asylum in the UK. I have been tortured here in the USA, with medication that I did not require, to the point of complete retardation of dysfunction, for the past 14 years, and, I have been forced to be homeless for the past, almost 4 years. My children were removed from my care, because of the torture which ensued, and, because I lacked the financial resources to support my family. I have not had a job interview, since 2008, although, I am capable of working, and, I have a Master's Degree. I have had little to no time at all, with any of my 3 children, who are all now in high school, over the past 14 years. I am tired of being homeless, although the medical abuse, within the healthcare system here in the USA, has abated, I am still being refused gainful employment, and safe housing, and access to my 3 children, to whom, I am the sole custodial parent--the sole decision maker according to the court system in Florida--USA. I would like to apply for asylum in the UK, for both myself, and my 3 children. I am having considerable difficulty surviving in the USA with no money, and not much family, and no housing, and no job interviews ever, although I am well qualified to work. I have no mental problems, although I was persecuted here in the USA, for the past 14 years. I just passed another psychological examination, at another hospital here in Phoenix, AZ. How do I apply for asylum online? I am not able to relocate to the UK at this time, in order to apply in an asylum application office in person, however, I could very easily relocate from Phoenix, AZ, closer to the British Embassy and Consulate location in Texas, USA. I could apply in person at the British Embassy location here in Texas, USA. I would not feel comfortable, after what I have suffered, in flying to the Washington, DC area, not at this time. My full legal name is: Miss Bayo Elizabeth Cary, A.A., B.A., M.L.I.S. . I will have a phone number again shortly, until that time, I can only be reached by email, at: belizabethcary@gmail.com . I am completely homeless, and really struggling, without enough financial resources, after years of medical mis-treatment, abuse, torture, and ostrification, to continue to survive, here in the USA. Thank you for your time, and for your immediate attention. I will look for your prompt reply by email. My situation is pressing, and requires an immediate resolve. Thank you again. Sincerely, Miss Bayo Elizabeth Cary, A.A., B.A., M.L.I.S. Email: belizabethcary@gmail.com
