Those considering following the European route to family unity ( http://www.jcwi.org.uk/blog/2013/02/07/family-unity-european-way ) may be interested in the correspondence from European Commissioners Viviane Reding and Cecilia Malmstrom, which deal with the rights of UK citizens to reside in Europe (and potentially move back to the UK).  See also these posts : http://britcits.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/another-resource-for-those-considering.html and http://britcits.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/comms-europe-when-we-originally-kicked.html ; and these guide to exercising free movement rights in Europe : http://ec.europa.eu/justice/policies/citizenship/docs/guide_free_movement_low.pdf .
