I scanned it in and sent it off to them on the 25th june, still waiting to hear and i have emailed them today, so fingers crossed thats enough..
Are you in the same boat? of not seeing them??
Thank God we are not alone!
Hi all, I have never been so pleased to see a thread ( I know that sounds strange)
We are still trying to sort our State Sponsorship out so may not even get to the point of needing medicals!, but my husband has two boys 14 and 16 from his first marriage which ended very badly, and there is no way in hell his ex will let us take them for a medicals, we have not been able to see them since Dec!
If she knew we were even trying to leave the UK he would be back in court for something.... god knows what but she would find a way to put a spanner in!
You some times sit with your head in your hands thinking how on earth short of kidnap do we sort this out! I believe you need to take in the childrens passports with you when you go for the medical, something else which we dont have access to, so there is another obsticle.
Any way we will face it when we get a CO, and we will watch this thread develop with interest.

Just did my Stat Dec and sent it to immigration today.
And now i wait.
What did you say in your declaration who did you get to sign it? Think this might be something we have to do.
Good Luck... We had an email yesterday sayin they received ours on the 26th June and is awaiting for the Case Officer to go over it. Whenever that may be!!
Well fingers crossed for us both..
Hi, we've been through this and come through the other side.
We did a Stat Dec at a solicitors just explaining/stating the situation - we hadnt seen oh lil boy for a couple of years and his ex kept moving/no idea where they lived etc.
Ironically just before we moved we managed to make contact and see his lil boy which made the move 100x's harder.
Good luck, its not as big a hurdle as you may think xxx
Are you saying Stat Dec did the trick? I mean accepted and no further infomation.
