In this webinar interview with Enfield resident Paige Ballmi explains why she is campaigning to change the government’s spouse visa laws

In December 2017 I was stood on a bridge over the A10 attempting to end my life.

Two days previous to this I had received the devastating news from the Home Office that my now husband’s fiancé visa had been refused. The refusal stated that my earnings were not enough for us to live together in our home in Enfield, despite me earning over the required amount.

Despite many efforts to communicate their errors to them, the Home Office refused to listen and take me seriously, knowing that I was a vulnerable young woman who just wanted my right to a family life. I was essentially punished for falling in love with a foreigner.
