Leeds family ‘could be torn apart by immigration battle’

Source :Yorkshire Evening Post


'A couple are pleading with the Government not to “put a price on love” amid fears that immigration rules on minimum incomes will tear their young family apart. Aerial trapeze artist Natalie Stafford married South African yacht skipper Michael Engel in his home town of Cape Town, South Africa, last year. The pair, who live in South Milford near Leeds, have a 14 month old daughter Nyama Rose together. But Natalie’s unpredictable income - and tight rules governing how much UK partners must earn before their partners can be allowed to live here permanently - have left the pair in limbo...'

Please sign Natalie and Michael's petition :
