September applicant

Post by Mera-IR » Thu Apr 25, 2013 10:08 pm

Hi,
I would like to ask that if you could please have read of the background detail of my previous post? could you please let me know whether it was risky for me to apply for ILR in September 2012 or maybe I would be fine? As the waiting gets longer I come up with assessing all the records.

Wish everyone here all the best!

Many thanks

Novice's opinions here.

1st bold: Were you legal during the 7 weeks period (which is less than 49 days)? For example, if an applicant finishes an undergrad in June, the visa expires on 31st Oct and the applicant returns to the country, and then the applicant starts a Master's in Jan and the visa starts around the time of xmas (obtained through a British consulate). There is roughly 7 weeks legal gap. I think this gap is acceptable (and reasonable).

2nd bold: I think many people are missing stamps when going out and entering the country. This is not traveller's fault. It's the administrative error that belongs to the home office.

Underlined: The waiting time has been around 8 - 9 months and from one of the previous posts which was based on a document obtained using the information freedom act (or something like that) stated that as of 10th April, 1850 July applications (on Set(O)) are still outstanding/pending. You might have to wait a couple of months to hear from them.

VOLO Process wrote:Withdrawal of first application (not travelling)
Where an applicant who is not travelling, makes a clear, unambiguous request for consideration of the first application to be discontinued, VOLO leave will terminate 28 days after the date of withdrawal of the first application. If such a request is ambiguous, clarification that the application is being withdrawn should be sought. Only once a clear, unambiguous request has been made can the VOLO leave period be allowed to continue. Where such notification is given by post, the date of postage is when the application is withdrawn and the last 28 days of VOLO leave are triggered by that date. Any second application will only attract a right of appeal if the decision is taken, appeal rights notified and an appeal lodged during the extension under VOLO. The withdrawn application should be notified on INDECS using result code 7 and category code X1.
My personal suggestion is to withdraw your FLR (O) with a clear written intention why you are withdrawing your application and on whose advise (mention the caseworkers name)
Thank you Damanisshallo. Actually the caseworker who started working on my FLRO application he sent me letter asking about withdrawing of one application and I'll defintely withdraw my FLRO (initial application) which I submitted to complete the shortfall in 10 years. I'm surprised that I clearly mentioned in covering letter that my SETO is actually the variation of the initial FLRO application but they still put into the fresh application. My only worry it may affect over my SETO application?

Sarah Rapson Email id

Post by Soul&Karma » Fri Apr 26, 2013 10:17 am

For all Hunting for Sarah Rapson's email. The following might be helpfull.

Might be we need to wait for their response for the below.
OK, I've set my mission to find the email addresses of the new Director Generals of UKBA (or the new services respectively )

We were all previously aware of UKBA's cheif exec Rob Whiteman's being Rob.Whiteman@Homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk

However, the new named Director Generals So far, Ive been unsucessful... but have filed a FOI request...
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/ ... _email_add

However,by searching I have found numerous homeoffice addresses:

So i thought i would share some of them:

http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitec ... iew=Binary
I've found the following emails: Sheelagh.Warde2@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk
this person Sheelagh Warde works in the Government Relations ... what she does exactly i dont know...
http://uk.linkedin.com/pub/sheelagh-warde/3/394/521




I propose we have a thread listing email addresses - where we found them, and the person they relate to... - in hopes this will help others...

(There are various messages across this forum already stating some email addresses...

European dept:
WhitemanRobSubmissions@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk; EREC@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk; LiverpoolEuro.PassportReturns@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk; UKBACust1568@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk; < this got changed in an email from rob whitemans from UKBACustomerComplaints@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk - whether it relates to my complaint alone, i dont know, but i would assume there have been far more than 1568 complaints to UKBA ...

Quote:

Regional MP Account Managers throughout the UK host similar events. If you would like us to let you know when these events will be happening in your area, please email: Mpsevents@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk.



https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/ ... letter/new
Perhaps their newsletter will hold the information on new email addresses....




= Does an MP need to respond to a FOI request? - I know that they must respond to a SAR... but what of FOI?



I also emailed Rob Whiteman the following Directly:

Quote:

my name and address

FAO: Rob Whiteman / FOI Team
CC Nadhim Zahawi

Dear Sir(s),

Under the Terms of the FOI Act 2000, I would ask the following...

The email address for the new director generals - Sarah Rapson and David Wood. The large public interest for disclosing this information will far outweight the "private information" aspect...

I also outline that UKBA have on numerous occastions disclosed various Home Office email addresses - they are not private addresses but internal Home Office contact Details...

I draw attention to:
http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitec ... iew=Binary

Where you disclose the email address of: Sheelagh Ward - Sheelagh.Warde2@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk

I would also expect that both of these Director General's are informed of my complaints (unless they are infact below Rob Whiteman in which case there will be no need for this.)

Yours
Mr W B P

Did u mean the HO didn't request for another biometric registration?
jitu_2677 wrote:Guys more good news. my ilr was approved on 18th April, today i got my wife's passport dated 23nd April. just to inform you i didn't send my passport or biometric card. So it looks like home office don't need those, they can check on their system.

only 1 issue surprise me. My wife is in transitional route as she came here before 9th July 2012. so she should get 2 yrs visa. but they gave her 2 and half yrs visa under new rule.

so my question is can she apply for ilr (SET M) as she completed 2 yrs residence as a tier 1 general dependent.

This probably created the backlog in the first place though. I am glad that some are getting an earlier decision, but it might not be caused by them writing a letter of complaint to the home office. It could simply be that they have a family, dependent, and their cases could be considered relatively "compassionate" hence can be fast-tracked. I would ideally like the home office to deal with cases in the order they are received.

It's like the university admissions system. If you make one exception, you have to make another one too. Soon, we have a system where the admissions process relies on the luck, not the qualifications/achievements.

And don't forget that some applications despite a number of complaints from applicants themselves and MPs are still pending more than 9 months after the receipt of the applications.


According to my Excel sheet, it's been more than 245 days for me.

In case anyone doesn't know, you can calculate days using now() - this function gives you today's date minus your date of application (in the same format). This gives you the exact number of days.

Can anyone please provide FAX no's

Hi Izno, thank you Smile.
Please see below the template letter milagro shared with us a while ago.

I would suggest to follow the route of giving 1 phone call, then send a letter or fax (it has worked for some), contact your MP and then write the ltter below. I think your case would read nicer and sound more solid if you state you have tried to deal with HO by calling, writting, etc and you finally don't know what to do and that is why you are contacting them.

You can contact them straight away but is my opinion is best to follow that order. Best of lucks!!

Please read this:
Rob Whiteman : rob.Whiteman@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk
Mark Harper : mark.harper.mp@parliament.uk
Teresa May : mayt@parliament.uk
Home Office Complaints: public.enquiries@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk

There is no harm in making a noise about the delays after 6 months - so you must send one and send reminders every day however silly it looks. Keep the language clean and assertive. Here is a what I sent:
-----------------------------------
Hello Mr. Whiteman,

UKBA Ref. No. :XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

I would like to lodge an official complaint with UKBA regarding serious delays (nearly 8 months) in my settlement application processing.
Sorry, but I will be writing to you directly on a regular basis from now on, until I receive a demonstrable assurance that UKBA is taking an action on my case.
I would also want to request Mr. Mark Harper to intervene and ensure that a law abiding, tax paying resident of UK should not be victimized in this way.

Details of my application:
UKBA Ref. No. : XXXXXXXXXXXXX
Application Type : SET(O)
Applied from within the UK
Application Date: 22nd Aug 2012
Main Applicant: NAME (D.O.B. DD-MM-YYYY). Nationality : COUNTRY
Dependent 1 : NAME (D.O.B. DD-MM-YYYY). Nationality : COUNTRY
Biometric Enrolment Date: 21st Nov 2012
6 Months wait period completed on 22nd Feb 2013
7 Months wait period completed on 22nd Mar 2013

I raised the matter with UKBA through my MP XXXXX - as UKBA customer service had only one unhelpful answer "Your application is in progress. Please continue to wait.".
Following information was transmitted back to me :
As on 01-MAR-2013 my application wasn't allocated to a caseworker.
As on 05-MAR-2013 my application wasn't on UKBA database and would likely be added by spring time.

My Complaint:
1. Applications made after mine have had their applications decided - while my application wasn't allocated to a case worker and most likely hasn't even been opened. UKBA promises that they process applications in the order they are received - and this clearly hasn't happened in my case.
2. UKBA has seriously delayed my application processing beyond their published service standards. This is due to maladministration at UKBA and no fault of mine. This uncertainly and total lack of transparency has caused me and my family tremendous mental stress, prevented us from travelling outside UK to visit to my ailing parents. I consider this as a breach of my human rights.
3. I have received a shambolic customer service (0870 606 7766) - where the UKBA staff was not even willing to listen to my concerns and worries and had absolutely no answers. It was like as if I was speaking to a tape recorder.
4. I was contracted to do IT work for a client and it got completed on 22-FEB-2012. I had made my MP aware of this with proof of completion of contract. Since then I am unable to attend job interviews for new contracts as all employers demand the following to schedule an interview:
A proof of identification
A proof that I am legally allowed to work in UK and have enough time left on my permit to be able to fulfil my job.
Both of these above, requires me to present my passport and BRP - which I don't have because UKBA hasn't processed my application within the timelines that UKBA themselves have published.
5. While I am unable to find work forced by the delays caused by UKBA, I have to pay for me and my family's living expenses out of my limited savings as I do not I have recourse to public funds. Is it justified that I should put my career and finances at risk because of UKBA maladministration and infact pay for that out of my pocket?
6. UKBA suggested me the following options:
Put in request for my passport temporarily (1-2 days) for identity checks by employer. This is to be done by following a process that is supposed to take 20 working days. There will be several interviews scheduled over a period of time - so for each interview scheduled does UKBA expect me to put in a request for return of my passport and wait for 20 days for it to arrive. This again is not acceptable to me.
Withdraw the application and apply again at a suitable time. This would involve forfeiting my application fees , losing out on over 7 months and make a fresh application and waiting for 20 working days for my documents to arrive. This again is not acceptable to me.
Present compelling and compassionate reasons for expediting the processing of my application. This is really surprising to hear because after UKBA knows that they are at fault, and they haven't actioned on my application in over 7 months now - its time UKBA should take the responsibility and ownership of taking the earliest possible decision on my application.
7. My kids (details above) are due to start their primary schooling in a years time. We have planned to buy/rent a property near a good school - this has gone haywire as we cannot apply for a mortgage or produce identity documents for pre-tenancy checks. UKBA delays have seriously jeopardized our plans for providing a good schooling to our children denying then their basic human right.
8. This delay from UKBA will eventually cause a delay for me and my family's citizenship/naturalization application - again attributed to delays caused by UKBA and no fault of mine.

Please provide answers to the complaint above (all 8 points) above and also advise me about the following :
A clear timeline for the processing of my application - permanent solution.
Evidence that a case worker has been allocated to my application and will be available until a decision has been made.
How UKBA and Home Office intend to compensate me for the losses (of money, time and inconvenience) it has caused me and my family.

Dear All,

I have just received my passport and documents back (still waiting for biometrics though).

The letter was printed 16-04-13 so documents were actually sent yesterday. They were delivered to my old address (even after telling them a zillion times my new one) and comes just after receiving a response on Monday from Rob Whiteman's PA.

Also, my MP contacted me saying my application has been approved.
If someone could update the skydrive for me would be appreciated.

My details are:

Application sent: 22/07/12
Complaints: phone calls, letters, contacted MP and finally Rob Whiteman and others as per milagro's post.
Passport received: 17/04/13
Biometrics: waiting
Visas held for 10 years: 5 years student (1 year computer course+bachelors), 1 year IGS, 1 year PSW, 1 year student (MSc), 3 years student (PhD) with visa expiring October 2013. No more of 3 months out of the country in total.

Also, in my complaint letter I asked if I could apply for the British passport in October hence HO took ages to process my documents....they did not answer, they only said my documents have been processed already and on their way.

I think I will just wait the year they ask, unless I get written proof from someone at HO that I can.

For all the ones waiting, specially June/July and August applicants, please do complain. Do make your MP's aware as even when they do nothing, it creates awareness about the issue.

I will let you all know when I receive my biometrics and good luck to everyone.

If any member has official statistics about recent processing times of the set(O) applications and (of those applications) 10 year residence applications, please post. I would love to see them.

Does anyone also have official documents about what constitutes "compassionate or compelling" cases? The sentence about the compassionate and compelling cases was included in the guideline probably to create some room for interpretation and to give some flexibility/autonomy to caseworkers. Probably, it is not defined for those reasons. But I am just curious if they have official definitions about those terminologies.

FLR M? for ILR dependent and does section 12c applies spouse

Post by shahab99 » Fri Apr 26, 2013 1:39 pm

Hi Damanisshallo or any member

I have applied for ILR on 10 years legal residency in August 2012 and I haven't recieved any result. My wife is living with me since 2009 and her Tier4 dependent visa and our child who was born here is going to expire by the end of this month. I am going to apply for her extension by post.
Is FLR M the correct form for her to apply?
In section 12c do I need to show the documents for two years that we lived together or it only applies to unmarried partners? if yes do these documents need to cover the whole 2 years period.

Thanks

10 years long ilr and flr m

Post by nazeeer123 » Fri Apr 26, 2013 1:50 pm

I need help in filling the flr m form. My wife can to uk on psw dependent in early April 2012. she spend 1 year on psw dependent .

My application is pending on 10 years ILR and my wife's visa is due to expire in end mayl.

I my previous discussion on this form i was told that she falls under old rules. and i don't need to fill the section 7A and need to go to section 7B

Help on the Form

Setion 2 : I have selected spouse of a person present and settled in the uk and a biometric immigration document. (is this correct?)

Section 2 point 2.2 which says "is this the first time you ahve applied for a visa or extension of stay in one of the above categories "?? yes or no??
She is applying flr m for the first time but she is already a dependent. what should i say yes or no?

In the same section they have a option which says if you are applying for any other reason - please explain below (on page 7) and there is a box to fill in. Do i fill in this box with the details of my ilr pending??

Section 3 point 3.15 "if your sponsor was not british from birth, when did your sponsor obtain settlement? asking for a date what should I say? my application is under consideration for ILR?


In Section 4 (it says it is mandatory to complete this section as required. )

Do we need to fill in any of this even if there are no children applying ?
My wife is expecting any day. What if i am applying her visa after her delivery do i need to fill in this section.

Section 7A: do i need to fill in any of this including 7.1 question? or should i just go to section 7B?

Setion 7B: In section 7B they are asking about rent and salary of my wife and myself.



If we fall under old rules i have seen on one of the links on this forum that you have to have 111.45 per week for a couple without children + the rent and the council tax. How much salary is sufficient for the flr m under old rules

do they consider any bank balance(s) in flr m application.

I have applied for ILR on 10 years legal residency in August 2012 and I haven't recieved any result. My wife is living with me since 2009 and her Tier4 dependent visa and our child who was born here is going to expire by the end of this month. I am going to apply for her extension by post.
Is FLR M the correct form for her to apply?

Yes

In section 12c do I need to show the documents for two years that we lived together or it only applies to unmarried partners? if yes do these documents need to cover the whole 2 years period.

Doesn't applies to you


Thanks

My application is pending on 10 years ILR and my wife's visa is due to expire in end mayl.

I my previous discussion on this form i was told that she falls under old rules. and i don't need to fill the section 7A and need to go to section 7B

Correct

Help on the Form

Setion 2 : I have selected spouse of a person present and settled in the uk and a biometric immigration document. (is this correct?)

Correct

Section 2 point 2.2 which says "is this the first time you ahve applied for a visa or extension of stay in one of the above categories "?? yes or no??
She is applying flr m for the first time but she is already a dependent. what should i say yes or no?

Yes


In the same section they have a option which says if you are applying for any other reason - please explain below (on page 7) and there is a box to fill in. Do i fill in this box with the details of my ilr pending??

Since you said "yes" to the previous Q? you shall proceed to Section 3.

Section 3 point 3.15 "if your sponsor was not british from birth, when did your sponsor obtain settlement? asking for a date what should I say? my application is under consideration for ILR?

Awaiting consideration/decision. You can provide the Application date of the sponsor


In Section 4 (it says it is mandatory to complete this section as required. )

Do we need to fill in any of this even if there are no children applying ?
My wife is expecting any day. What if i am applying her visa after her delivery do i need to fill in this section.

Read the full sentence...
In this section include any children under the age of 18 who are living with you in the UK and who are applying as your dependants. It is mandatory to complete this section as required.


Even if your wife gives birth to your child, you don't have to worry as you aren't including him/her in the application. 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 should be No and proceed to Section 5.

Section 7A: do i need to fill in any of this including 7.1 question? or should i just go to section 7B?

No

Setion 7B: In section 7B they are asking about rent and salary of my wife and myself.

This is to see if you are able to maintain your family without relying on Public Funds.

do they consider any bank balance(s) in flr m application.
