I have a friend got only 5 years visa on his passport
Non eu married to eu in 02/2015
He applied 2 months ago and he got this month settled statues

Is that means I can apply as non eu once I complete 4 years and 6 months since the date of the marriage certificate
Does anyone have similar experience

Thanks for your reply Ruthy.
Looks like they are very busy with so many applications, that we will need to wait longer to receive an decision.
Please let me know when your Husband receive any news and I will do the same.
( I have 15 years living in UK and I have permanent resident)
I hope your husband and me don’t have to wait much longer.

Hi,
I am an Eu living in the UK for the past year. I submitted my application around 23rd September, and I got my decision on the 8th of october. They are taking more than 5 days to reply, they have got so many applications to study.
I hope this will help you.
Good luck!

Hi Adam, my case is similar. I am separated from my EU spouse but still legally married. My
Family permit was valid from June 2013 to June 2018.

I applied for settled status 13 September 2019 but has not received anything since.

I think you case is okay since you have competed the 5 years required period it's just matter of time

Just out of curiosity, will the scenario below qualify for settled status?

Non EU family member
Married 2012
RC granted 2016 after a long battle with the HO.
Pre settled status granted June 2019

Since I’ve been married since 2012 and been living with my EU wife all this time (7 years) don’t I qualify for settled status although I’ve not fully covered 5 years on the RC?

Thanks

Hi All,
I thought I would post my timeline too.
I applied alone as a non EU spouse of French citizen married in 2008.
I had EEA RC from 2009 -2014 then Permanent Residence Card since 2014 (Stamp in passport)

EU Settlement Application timeline:
Online application: 06.09.2019 (I submitted a photo of my PR, a copy of my passport, a bank statement and a payslip).
Biometric done at Croydon: 11.09.2019
CoA received on: 04.11.2019 at 12h45 (by email)
Decision received 1 hour later: 04.11.2019 at 13h45 (by email): Settled.
BRC will be send by post within 7 days.

All the best to all those still waiting.
T
