Just a quick one I believe you applied a month prior (4 years 11month) from your eligibility time. Did they give you an option to select settled status/Pre or you got the decision later post submission?
Thanks in advance
1) When I made an online application, I was considered for settled status and received acknowledgment email.
2) HO sent a COA via email saying I will have my decision soon.
3) HO sent another email regarding status outcome.
Till here no physical document was posted in mail.
4)Received bio metric in post - signed delivery but not Royal Mail.
My 5 years residence card was about to expire on 2nd of May this year, but got settled status date as 28th of April (this means I will be eligible for British Citizenship after 28th of April 2020) and not the date I made my application 5th of April.
In my wife case who is an EU national, and also granted settled status, HO stated her settled status date as date when she made the application 4th of April. I think just for 4 days left on my residence card to qualify 5 years was not an issue for HO.
But again we lived together for more than 8 years on a same address. I have seen people have posted here different things but trust me in the end it’s HO who will decide which status you should be granted by considering different factors and not just rely on what you were told online when you made an application.
So I would emphasise that people here are sharing their experiences which we don’t know how good their past visa/residence history is but only home office.
Make an application and provide what HO ask you to provide and you will be fine and given status which meets their criteria.
So when application is made it provides what status am Individual will be considered for ? If yes is it straight after application is submitted ?
Sorry for for being a pain
