I'm EU citizen and my wife EEA family member have a permanent residence card stamped on her non EU passport. This card will expire in January/18 after 10 years. We send her documentation to renewal just now and was rejected. The explanation was not clear. Is this because of Brexit and they are not doing nothing at moment until UK LEAVE EU? Nov/17. Thanks

Public Answer: 

Dear Sir, unfortunately, it is not clear from the limited information we have as to why the Home Office rejected your partner’s renewal application. Brexit has not caused the Home Office to put a stay on EEA Applications, they are still being processed as normal. We believe that in order to ascertain the reasons why your partners application, a member of our EEA specialist at OTS Solicitors shall be in touch with your shortly to discuss this matter further.
