(Decision No 1/80 of the EEC-Turkey Association Council, Art. 7, first para.)


$$The first paragraph of Article 7 of Decision No 1/80 of the EEC-Turkey Association Council must be interpreted as covering the situation of a Turkish national who has been authorised in her capacity as the spouse of a Turkish worker duly registered as belonging to the labour force of the host Member State to join that worker there, in circumstances where that spouse, having divorced before the expiry of the three-year qualification period laid down in the first indent of that provision, still continued in fact to live uninterruptedly with her former spouse until the date on which the two former spouses remarried. Such a Turkish national must be regarded as legally resident in that Member State within the meaning of that provision, so that in that State she may rely directly on her right, after three years, to respond to any offer of employment, and, after five years, to enjoy free access to any paid employment of her choice.
