Having just heard of a particularly shocking centre of life refusal of a Surinder Singh case, I thought I would start collating such refusals. I will try and work out a way to submit them to the European Commission, who are investigating the UK on this issue, and will use extracts for a future edition of my Surinder Singh ebook to inform those considering making an application. If you have been unfortunate enough to receive a centre of life based refusal, please send me a copy using the submission form below. I will anonymise or seek consent before doing anything with them, but to be doubly sure if you are worried please anonymise before submitting.

You do not need to leave your name and email address. It would be much easier at my end if you could upload pdf documents. Apps for smart phones that scan to pdf are easy to find and often free.
