Robert Scott and partner Brazilian national Neuza Miranda Rodriguez face the same visa denial trauma as Arbroath mother Angela Smith.
Following reports of Ms Smith’s order to leave the UK immediately, Mr Scott from Cardenden in Fife contacted the Arbroath Herald.
“The night that Angela’s case was on the news, she held up the home office letter, and unbelievably it is word for word the same as our refusal letter.
“I thought they looked at all these cases individually. It looks like they have just changed the name, date and nationality. Angela has the same cover letter and the same refusal letter.”
Mr Scott (53) met Miss Rodriguez (27) while working in Brazil in 2011. Neuza fell pregnant and came to live with Mr Scott in Kirkaldy so he could take care of her during her pregnancy.
Milla Scott was born in January 2012 in Scotland and the couple have lived together since, splitting their time between Cardenden and Arbroath, where the couple spend the summer months.
Mr Scott works in a job which takes him to Norway for two weeks of every month.
He said: “I am hopeful that they can’t just come and take Neuza and leave my two-year-old daughter on her own but I am worried.”
A letter from the Home Office confirmed the receipt of key documents for Neuza’s application to stay in the UK such as her passport. The refusal letter received along with a request to leave the country, states that she failed to send the correct documents.
