Revived bleow reply

“Your application is still in progress and awaiting further consideration. Once these actions have been completed you will be contacted in due course”

I hate to read when they write thanks for your patience at the end.

3 applicants: EU with PR, EU child, Non-EU spouse (6.5 continuous residence in UK, last 2 years on EEA RC)

Application submitted: 11/3/2019 (all)
Soft decision: Settled status (suggested for all)
COA received: 11/3/2019 (all)
Application decision (EU with PR, EU child): Settled status granted on 14/3/2019
Application decision (Non-EU family member): No update yet

I understand there are a few of us is a similar situation (i.e. non-eu waiting for a decision whilst their EU family members have received a decision in a timely fashion). I was wondering if someone can advise on what should be considered as the start date of the continuous period with regards to the settled status application. I see 5 potential options:

a) Arrival date in UK (2012)
b) Start date of ‘durable’ relationship with EU national (2013)
c) Date on marriage certificate (2015)
d) EEA RC application date (2016)
e) EEA RC approval date (2017 – yes it took almost 6 months to process)

Please see the answer below as per my opinion

For EU National - starting day will be the day when they entered in the uk

For non Eu national - Day when he married to EU national in the uk but if they married outside of uk then the day when he entered or hounded in the uk with their spouse

Extended family member -from first day in the the uk on residency card as a extended family member

Exactly correct.

Yes you can certainly apply under this scheme if you have a valid bomatric card on the basis of retain rights if you don’t have a card you have to wait until the scheme opens fully. I have a retain rights and applied for pre settled status

Hi Gfc1,
Ag04952 is right. You can apply if you have a valid biometric card on the basis of retain right.

Hi guys,
I am wondering if i can apply for this settled status. I have a RC(sticker version) since 2011. When i got divorced in 2014 i was issued with ROR (sticker version) in April 2015 which will expire next yr. Since 2017 i have applied for PR 4 times and was refused 4 times.

Can i apply for this settled status? If i apply what will they grant me settled or Pre settled? If they grant me settled, do i still need to apply for PR?

Pls i need assistance.
Thanks.

All things being equal , one qualifies for settled status upon attainment of 5 complete years from date of marriage (if marriage occurred in the UK).

I would kindly suggest however though that based on your application history as highlighted above , It might also be worth addressing the reasons for your previous refusal as that would also determine what category you fit in at the moment.

Hello Hugo.

Ok. My first 3 applications for PR was refused due to not including my ex id. When i finaly get in touch with her and she clearly put in writing that she will not give the id cos we are dovorced. I printed all our conversation and sent to HO with my 4th applicatio. To my suprise the refusal letter i got was that they(HO) is not sure i have ROR. The ROR was the stamp on my passport which i submitted also.

So with the scenery is it advisable to go for Settlement?

Hi Mate, you don’t need to submit proof for your ex wife as this has already been sent when you were issued residency card, and if should have received a letter from HO confirming retain rights of residency along with your residency stamp.

Please can you answer below questions

1. When did you marry ?

2. When was the residency card issued on the basis of marriage?

3. Divorce date ?

4. When were you issued retain rights of residency ?

5. You were refused 4 times ? What they said in the 4 refusal letters ?

One thing sure, if you were granted residency card in the past or COA , or retain rights of residency you don’t need to submit her your ex wife’s ID as this has already been sent to them by you at the time of first residency card otherwise they wouldn’t have issued you card at first place, then after they issued retain rights so you do not need to submit your ex wife’s ID , they should check on the system. Certainly if you were issued retain rights you should apply for settled status. Settled status makes life easier as you don’t need to show payslips etc for yourself and your ex wife
