ILR for old work permit dependents

Post by vadday1986 » Fri Jun 21, 2013 6:27 pm

To give a little bit of background about myself, I have been on work permit (Old style) from October 2008 (Still on old style WP).

I got married in December 2011. My wife got her WP dependant visa issued in december 2011 and she has come to the UK (for the first time) on 26/12/11.

My question is that my wife can apply with me ? As she is less than 2 years in uk . But as per the requirements stated under 196d paragraph of current immigration rules ! No time limit mentioned for non - PBS !

2. I am getting eligible for ILR this September 2013 .
3. I got married in December 2011 in India and my wife joined me here in December 2011.
4. She has spent around 1 year 09 months with me in UK.
5. Does she qualifies for ILR as she is WP dependent and not PBS? Or we will need to apply for ?
6.We could not find our Marriage certificate , but we got our wedding card and photos as proof .Please advise on this ...........

Many thanks.

I think my case is a bit complicated but I hope someone can advice me something regarding it.

At the moment I'm staying in the country under the Tier 4 Student visa that will expire 6th of November. In June I got married to a person who has a work permit visa (non point-based system). Under the new rules that presumably will come into effect 1t of October (HC 628) I will be able to apply for a dependant visa on my husband's working visa inside of UK.

However the situation complicates because my husband's working visa expires in December and he will have to apply for an ILR. Also based on immigration law part 5 rule 196d I should qualify for ILR with my husband but only if I already have a dependant visa on the moment of application.

Therefore I need to get a dependant visa asap on his existing working visa in order to qualify for an ILR with my husband. I'm afraid though that I will encounter some problems because his working visa expires in two months.

Can you please advice me whether I have any chances to get a dependant visa on the work permit visa 2 months before it expires?

Thanks!

Hi would you mind to share the outcome of your case. any suggestion. I got more or less similar situation for my wife.

She is here in uk since 2009 on student visa. we were married in 2010.

i am on work permit under old system( granted in sept 2008). now i am due to apply for my ILR in Dec13 but not sure about my wife. She is still on student visa.

Just wondering if she should switch her visa asap as my dependent and then apply for ILR with me in Dec13.

Time is short so any prompt help will be much appreciated.
Thanks
