Thank you for replying
The switch to the FLRM (Now thanks to Vinny I know has to be done from abroad, I guess that first I will have to obtain a Family permit to come in the UK under UK law, then once back inside apply for FLRM, right?) will be merely
to satisfy exactly article 295Gi, I expand my logic below:
295Gi requires me to be admitted to the UK for a period not exceeding 27 months or given an extension of stay for a period of 2 years (however it does not mention that I am required to complete the 27 months or 2 year period under this permit).
The second part of 295Gia Does say that I have to have completed a period of 2 years as the unmarried partner of a person present and settled here.
(Again, no mention that I have to complete the 2 year period under any specific visa, therefore I am assuming that I have covered this point as I have completed more than the two year period, though it has been under the EU law).
Am I right or just over stretching the interpretation?
I know I could wait one more year to apply for EEA4 but as no one seems to know when the 5 year period starts counting for unmarried partners, I might ending up waiting for three more years, plus, it seems that getting the EEA4 through takes an average of 8 to 12 months for this same reason I didn't reapply to get the EEA2 RC. So, if there is a way to get ILR faster I am willing to fork the money for the FLRM and SETM but first I need to know if my chances are good following this route.
