Could you tell me which appendix did you fill for your child's settlement application ?
My case is both myself and my wife are on ILR and want to apply child settlement visa from India.
Thanks in advance ,
Even employment letter should have details:rsathish wrote:"Employment contract on top of employee letter, P60 and the bank slips"
The only reason I can think of is that the employement contract would have the start date of the current job & the title/ position of the sponsor.
They ask these two things in the form & may want to see a confirmation. As there is a financial requirement case where the sponsor is working for < or > 6 months in the current job.

To give you background, the following is my case
I’m currently living in UK under Indefinite Leave to Remain(ILR) and I applied for my son’s Entry Clearance in Chennai through new rule on 22nd August 2012 where my wife is currently in FLR(M) visa. Unfortunately, we received the ‘Refusal of Entry Clearance’ from BHC stating the below reason
“Your sponsor is not exempt from the financial requirements as defined paragraph E-ECP 3.3. You have not provided the relevant P60 or copy of employment contract as evidence of your sponsor’s gross income from their employment/income sources. These documents are specified in Immigration Rules in Appendix FM-SE and must be provided. You have failed to provide the specified documents of your sponsor’s employment/sources of income. I therefore refuse your application under paragraph EC-C.1.1 (d) of Appendix FM of the immigration Rules (E-ECC 2.1)”
I was under the impression that the latest Employer Reference Letter would be good enough to support employment contract evidence, but from the refusal I see that’s not the case. At least the officer should have requested/asked for P60 as I got all the P60's and employment contract with me and unfortunately didn’t submitted along with the application form.
Could you please suggest whether I can go for appeal as the ECO states that I didn’t provided the required document. If I’m going for an appeal with the P60 and employment contract provided, will ECO would be able to overturn the decision. Looking for everyone’s valuable advice and suggestions to take this forward.
