'We are a local Cornish family - my daughter is trying to bring her husband to the UK - Please support our petition and spread it to your friends - we need as many signatures as possible. Thank you.'


'In September 2011 our family was blessed with two weddings - our son married a lovely local girl and our daughter married her long time penpal from USA.

'We are a typical British Family living in rural Cornwall - we all work - we may not be rich but we are close knit and there for each other.  Even though my daughter works full time at a local business.

'Theresa May's immigration income rule means that many families like ours are being kept apart because they don't earn enough - not because they are out of work or not being useful to society - but they are the working poor.  

'Most people who know us did not know about these immigration rules where a wife is separated from her husband. I'm sure lots of you did not either.  

'Despite the Government's scrapping of legal aid - we have represented ourselves at Court and won our case against UKBA on 24 September 2013 - but are still waiting for our visa. 

'Please help us to help our daughter and others facing separation - just look at your significant other or somone you love and imagine how you would feel being torn apart  - for years. 

'Thank you.'
