Re: Fast tracking existing/new ILR Applications

Post by digitalrev » Sun Apr 21, 2013 12:34 am

Same question here. I would rather pay 2K extra fee than wait for 6 months.

why HO do not allow same day service for ILR 10 years route?

Wife FLR

Post by Hyper-PK » Sun Apr 21, 2013 10:32 am

Hi Damanisshallo Saanju9 or any member of this forum. Please I need little bit clarification about my wife FLR application. As I had recieved my ILR last week on 10 year base and now I am planing to apply spouse visa for my wife. As i am full time PhD student and work only less than 20 hours so my over all income is under £6000 /year. But my wife works full time and her anual income is just over £15000. so my question is that could we show joint £15000+£6000 =£21000( to meet the £18600 rule) or main applicant has to show ( in this case me, and my total earning is only under £6000/year) his earning £18600 ( in this case I was on student visa and worked only part time) Or my dependent can show earning+saving to meet the total £18600

Please could any one coments on this
Many thanks in advance

Joint income of £18,600.00 is acceptable regardless of main applicant's individual income

The reason it was told that many members do send spouse flr(m) application along with set(o) because their spouse visa may be expiring along with their main applicant including me. so there is no chance of sending sponsors passport for flr(m) and giving reason that it is with UKBA and awaiting decision and later flr(m) visa will be awarded after the main applicant case considered.

but in your case i don't know that you have already received your passport and brp.

But anyway nothing wrong, just keep an eye on the post , best of luck. Please do call them or write to them whether they need your documents ?
Hi Z18,

as yes I have received my Passport & BRP card last week along with approval letter.

should I wait for them to contact me or just call them and ask whether I need to send my passport & brp back to them. if I will need to send them then it will create problem for my son's MN1 application.

any suggestion from your side. if I hear further then I will let you know.

Thanks, Hi last question to confirm before my wife's flrm peo appointment next week:
My wife will be subject to old rule in terms of no £18600 threshold requirement (because she has been T4 student dependent since 2005)
But will have to spend a fresh 2-year probation period i.e. all her previous years on T4 dependent do not count towards set(m) anymore because she is T4 student dependent which is on non-settlement route according to new rule published on 6th April?

Yes, you are right in saying so. Also take these references along with you just in case you might need to educate your caseworker if they aren't expertise in this area.

As per the below, I can see that, passport is more important for the children born abroad. However, it'd be better to submit his passport as well, irrespective of the validity.
Documents required for MN1 wrote:Evidence of the child's identity
You should provide:

the child's birth certificate; or
the child's travel document; or
the child's driving licence; or
bank, building society or credit card statements issued to the child in the last six months.

Thanks for the document request. Only 50% of applications are processed within 6 months. Of the July applications, still 1800 are outstanding which is more than half the applications submitted in July 2012 because roughly 2500 applications are received (were) received every month. These statistics are just so interesting.

I am in the same situation. No point in speculating. Let's just hope that the home office and the post office have not lost our passports. They still have 1800 to clear from July. 50% of 3,000 (average applications in a month) is 1,500. 50% of 1400 is 700.
