    Rules for clauses starting with 'When'

    I realise that for many of you this may be obvious but I am a bit of a beginner! I need to create a rule about clauses starting with 'when' based on the following (incorrect) sentence:

    'When I'll go there, I'll visit her'

    I have a few ideas about this but need help from someone who knows what they are talking about.

    This problem has been driving me mad so any help anyone could give me will be gratefully recieved.

    Thanks

    I am not sure about a rule, but I am sure that the sentence should be:
    When I go there I'll visit her.
    Or:
    I'll visit her when I go there.
