I entered UK in July 2001 as a "Dependant" on my spouse's WP .
I started to work on "dependant" visa status for 1.5 years and then got my own work permit processed in January 2003. I would've completed
4 years of my continuos stay in the UK by coming July 2005.
My question is am i eligible to apply for ILR in July 2005
given the following circumstances :
Dependant(for an Initial period of 1.5 yrs) + WP( 2.5 yrs) ?
It would be very helpful if any of you could answer my query.
Thanks very much in advance.

Notes: 1. You may still qualify as a dependant of your spouse (if spouse eligible in his / her own right.
2. If you hold an HSMP status (even shortly) you will be able to amalgamate all previous LTR periods in categories leading to settlement (WP + WP Dep) towards ILR.
