Hi faizan
How long you been married for? And what visa you had before applying?
I applied 22nd April. Done biometrics same day. COA received 05th June and now waiting. I’m divorced but didn’t upload divorce certificate. There’s wasn’t any more space to upload more documents. Do you think I chase them about my application.
Thank you very much.

Hi jabir been married for 3 years and lived in UK for 5 years.

Use the sopra website which you might have used to book your biometrics appointment as there you can upload as many documents as you like

And keep calling them and if it’s been this long wait tell them you want to complaint as I feel my case was stuck somewhere when I made complaint yesterday at 12 in afternoon I received coa st 14:28 and decision this morning

Thank you for your reply. So you think I ring them and inform them I’m divorced as I didn’t upload any document relating this.
Thank you

Just received my Indefinite Leave/Settled Status. I am a non-EEA, non-EU, non-Swiss spouse (not living together but not legally separated) of an Irish person. I had NO BRC and only a well expired EEA Family Permit in my passport. I have been in the UK for 9 years.

Applied: 05/07/19
Biometrics appointment: 08/07/19
Certificate of Application: 19/07/19
Request for further documentation: 23/07/19
Outcome of Settled Status/Indefinite Leave: 23/07/19 (literally 5 minutes after I emailed my sponsor's National Insurance number for them to run the same automated check as for me)

They requested proof that my sponsor (Irish spouse) had resided in the UK for the last 5 years. I provided my sponsor's National Insurance Number and they did the same automated check they did for my application to get their tax/employment history. As part of my original application I included our marriage certificate (American).

We got an email that the card will be received within 7 days.

Does he card holder have to sign the card personally? Or can her sponsor (and at the same time family member) do it? Maybe if she signs an authorizing letter in advance?

What happens if she misses the delivery because she had to travel for a week?

Sorry if this is a dumb question. But does anyone know what you physically get once you're granted pre-settled status. I"m EEA and my wife is non-EEA; she has a biometric appointment in two weeks' time. But if she gets pre-settled status, do they send her a residence card? We just want to know for travelling in and out of the UK. What will she be able to use at immigration control to show she has pre-settled status? Thanks in advance, if anyone knows.

If she already had a BRC means plastic biometric not sticker then she will get status by email only and the same card she will use.

But if previously she was granted 5 years with sticker then this time she will get a BRC (card with chip).
{ I'm not a solicitor, legal professional or immigration advisor, all of my posts are based on my online search and my own PR, ILR (LR), 2 FTT and 2 UTT refused but finally after 3 years of long battle I got my SETTLED STATUS. }

Hello,

My permit was valid until March 2020 too but I've got my BRC yesterday. all I would suggest is that you call them and ask why it's taking so long to conclude on your Application.

The EU Resolution Centre staffs are very friendly and easy to communicate with.

Hello,

I missed my delivery yesterday due to no one been at home and re-arranged delivery using the DX website.

The BRC came this morning as I changed delivery location to my work instead of residential address.

Hope this helps :)
