She could have applied as soon as she got ILR if she meets the 3 years residence requirement to apply as the spouse of a British citizen under Section 6(2) of the nationality act.

You need to submit what is asked for, nothing more and no unnecessary documents. It is not an immigration application she is making and citizenship has less/limited documents requirements. So not sure what all you were planning to submit from the ILR application.

Note she must be within the absence limit of 270 days for the last 3 years, 90 days absence limit in the last 12 months and she must have been physically present in the UK on the same date 3 years ago as the date she submits and pays online. Date of application is the online submission and payment date and not the ukcvas appointment date.

Hi Thank you for coming back to me.

No i did not do it as i thought i have to give them while biometric is done, even the guy at the appointment did not ask about them as i have mentioned him three times does he need anyting else. he said he has everything and all my documnets already checked and there is no note?

but i have uploaded them after the appointment later same day, do you think it will be ok?

Congratulations Naresh! So, in your case, it basically takes only 16 days from biometrics appointment to ceremony letter? It seems the fastest case I have seen in this forum.
