Ok here goes my attemt at explaining this.
Filling out the 176 visa on line and want to know how far to go on the non magrating family details part. This is just parents and brother and sisters is that correct? and is this for the wifes family aswell?.
Couple of problems though and this is where it gets a little complicated. Here goes -
My biological father walked out on my mum when i was very small and although i have his name on my birth cert i do not know his DOB for sure. After a bit of digging i have a date but know way of knowing if this is correct as i have never heard or seen him since i was a few weeks old.
My mum and i havent spoken for 12 years now i know her full name/DOB but she has since re married for the 3rd time so will i put on the visa her name now or just what it was ie my surname.
Stepdad (mums second husband) is what i called my dad for the whole of my life but was never adopted although i did change my name by deed poll but as he married my mum then i guess he should go on the visa even though he is now dead.
Lastly sisters, 1 or 3. I have a half sister from my mum and my not really adopted but name changed by deed poll dad who will have to go down. But also when my not really adopted dad and real mum split my not really adopded dad re married to a woman who had two daughters. Now we were brought up as step brother/sisters but in the eyes of the law we are not one bit related and now my not really adopted dad is dead do not keep in touch. Im thinking these do not need to go down.
Are you all still with me. So to elaberate -
Real dad with a possible DOB and know way of contacting what to do?
Real mum old surname or new 3rd time married surname?
Dead not adopted but my name changed to stepdad put down on visa?
Half sister to go down.
2 not step sisters but called step sisters from my not adopted stepdads second marrage after his divorce from my real mums marrage. And like i said he is now dead. Dont think they need to go down?
Now the wifes (if hers are required).
She was adopted so does not have a clue about her biological parents but apart from that just has adopted parents and 1 adopted brother. We think just these 3 are required as she has know way of finding out about her biological parents DOBs?.
No wonder we want to emigrate eh. If it does not work for us it certanly wont be down to missing family.
Any sugestions please
