[color=#FF0000]The letter stated where an applicant has not been compliant with the UK immigration laws in the 10 year period prior to the date of application the application will normally be refused. [/color]
They indicated i was here without a valid leave in the UK between 3 september 2010 when my leave to remain expired and i left the UK 6th August 2011 to my home country to regain entry clearance. the reason for this to happen was my application for my spouse visa 15 August 2010 this was rejected due to funds not taken from my account and got a letter on 26th November 2010 deemed invalid and was asked to reapply.
I reapplied on the 18th of Dec 2010 but got another letter on 11th Jan saying i used the wrong form. i immediately made another application using the right form in Jan received acknowledgement letter 4th of April and was sent a letter for biometrics on 6th April. On the 13th April i received a decision that my application has been refused due to the fact that i made a valid application after my leave to remain expired on the 3rd of september 2010. My wife was the one taking up all the maintenance and up keep as I had to leave my job immediately at the time.
I seeked legal advice and was finally advised to go to my home country to re apply which i did on the 6th of August 2011. So the letter is asking in order that we may give further consideration to your application please state how you were maintaining yourself in the country during this period and provide appropriate evidenceie wage slips, benefit letters, evidence of other income. please provide this information by the 18th May. Failure to send required informationby the given date will result in the application being refused. anyone please advice....thanks

Thank you for the email.
It is a matter of discretion for the caseworker to exercise. If you read the information I give you on the last email it would seem that the caseworker can waive the breach as you was granted.
Thank for your reply.
I would be grateful if you can clarify me if on basis of newly issued good character guidance annex D that I can apply now or to wait for completion of ten years due to illegal arrival in UK.
Your prompt response is much appreciated.
Home office:(last email)
Thank you for the email and I apologise for the delay in responding.
A person who entered the United Kingdom clandestinely and presented himself without delay to the immigration authorities following arrival or was detected by the immigration authorities shortly after arrival. In either case, the maximum period involved should normally be 1 month but, if there are extenuating circumstances, it may be longer. In these cases we can waive the breach that occurred from entry until the person’s first application for leave/asylum has been finally determined, provided the application resulted in a grant of refugee status or other leave;
