My ex partner has asked for my child's passport claiming it's for sponsoring a visa for his new wife who is foreign. Is this legit?

No

I'd just take a picture and send it to him. Not sure if it's legit but I'd rather keep the passport, just in case. A photo will give him all the details he needs

I wouldn't hand it over. All sounds odd.

No. Don't do it. Or at least ask him for a letter or email printout of the authority which has asked for this.

Tell him to give you the form and that you will fill it in

This is the form:

www.gov.uk/government/publications/application-for-uk-visa-for-family-settlement-form-vaf4a

And yes it asks for childrens details, you can just supply the information on that form.

George but it might not be that form...the authority could simply want additional proof and why the heck should OP have to do that!?

No. OP just ask him for proof of the request.

Ask him what exact information he needs from the passport and provide him with that info.

sirfredfredgeorge Fri 27-Jan-17 12:34:30

user..... because its his child, and it's perfectly reasonable to request the details, indeed it's perfectly reasonable for him to have them.

Handing passports around isn't sensible for lots of reasons, so providing the details, I wast mostly pointing to the form to show that the request is entirely legitimate, and the childs details are required for a spousal visa.

Thank you. I've been trying to look through the .gov sites on visas and none speak of partners children's details. I will ask for the evidence to prove what he needs it.

my child's passport

Is it his child too?

user1477282676 Fri 27-Jan-17 12:43:17

George yes but she shouldn;t be filling in forms for him.

TraceyBloom1983 Fri 27-Jan-17 12:45:27

Yes. But not the applicants. All the info related to visa applicants and sponsors require the applicants children's details. This in my opinion is n/a as she has no children. The sponsor is not asked to produce such details which is what I'm asking the question

The way you referred to the child as "my child" implied that it isn't his.

The form you fill in if you're sponsoring a visa application doesn't require children's details and the form his new wife has to fill in required details of her children, not his.

TraceyBloom1983 Sun 29-Jan-17 17:37:36

Yes the child is mine and his not his new wife's. He's the sponsor of his new wife's application

If his child is a British citizen they wouldn't need a copy for a U.K. Spouse visa.

Unless he is trying to get a visa under EU treaty rights to do the SS route in another country. Would he have difficulty in getting a spouse visa? For example for financial reasons, or if his new wife can't speak English well?
