'Please don't split my family.'


'Please please please help me get my family back together, My son and daughter in law do not want to claim benefits or council housing, they have a small inheritence to tide them over until they both have jobs, they dont care what work they do although Darren is a foreman plumber in SA and my daughter is an office manager. Darren needsto get UK qualifications to enable him to advance in his career and in the future I'm sure he will attain the stipulated salary but in the meantime I cannot bear the thought of the family being split. '

'A Kinross woman has vowed to fight controversial immigration legislation which threaten to split up her family.

'Elaine Lloyd was stunned to learn that her British-born son Darren’s plans to move home with his South African bride and their three-year-old son could be blocked by Home Office rules.

'As Darren Franklin’s wife Lizette was not born in an EU country she will probably have to return to South Africa after six months, leaving her husband and son Clayton behind.

'Under the legislation, the family could be kept apart until Darren can earn a salary of £24,200 per year. The Migrants’ Rights Network said their plight was far from unique.'
