Hi, i am a guy interested in creating a loving and caring family with two women.
This section should be read in conjunction with the general guidance above on the validity in the UK of polygamous / potentially polygamous marriages.
Section 2 of the Immigration Act 1988 prohibits certain polygamous wives from exercising their right of abode with the result that any application from such a wife has to be considered in accordance with paragraphs 278 to 280 of the Rules, which contain provisions to restrict settlement in most cases to one wife.
The ECO should be wary of death and divorce certificates in such circumstances, especially where talaq or customary laws are involved.
Any case where there is evidence that a divorce of convenience has occurred should be referred to Family Operations Policy for consideration and advice.
If the marriage is not valid under the laws of the UK, the spouse should be refused on that ground alone without considering the other requirements of the Rules relating to spouses.
