Hi every one ..
DH is on work ICT visa in UK .. I am on dependant visa on him... and 30 weeks pregnant.
But there are situations are getting created that he got his current employer notice of 1 month... he is trying his best to get another job and sponsor to get another visa .. but he is not successful yet ..
I am wondering with his visa my visa will also expire as dependent.. but that time I will be heavily pregnant.. to travel back in air journey to my home country.. what I will do .. we dont want to be illegal immigrants.. what are the options we can take if DH does not get job and sponsor by that time???
very much worried sad

The WHO guidelines (on which most airlines base their policy) is that you can fly up to 36 weeks, if it is a singleton pregnant and you are in normal health.

Can you go back just before 36 weeks if he has not secured a new post by then?

Ohh that means either We need to get separated when our baby will arrive sad OR he need to compromise with his career if he also come with me sad
he has his career continuity here .. if he also returns for me .. I know he has to struggle very much

Me going back is the last option I want to choose..
I am more interested in other legal options or appeals to stay until baby gets delivered .. if possible confused
if any one got similar situation??

You need to see an immigration adviser fast. A lawyer or similar.

You need to see an immigration lawyer today. This isn't something you want to guess at from a forum. This must have happened before.

This is too complicated for anyone here to answer. You need to see an immigration lawyer

If you have your baby here without a visa you may get stuck with the medical costs, and if they aren't paid, getting another visa may be hard.

Horrible situation, please get proper expert advice asap.

Is it complicated?

If he does not find a job, then at the 34 week point, both return home.

He can continue to job hunt, and they move back to UK, if they still want to, when he has secured a suitable new post.

Unlessof course there is a medical reason why OP cannot travel.

But yes, worth having a lawyer to hand, because if a job comes through at 11th hour (and Sod's law says that's when it'd happen) they would be able to advise whether the paperwork can be handled fast enough to avoid the need to leave even for a short while.
