1. If you meet all the requirements for long residence ILR, including the stricter absence limits, you can apply no sooner than within 28 days before 16th May. In addition to LIUK, you must meet the English requirement.

2. No. However, HO could ask for them if they wish to.

3. Non payment of council tax is not a court judgment. It is a Liability Order issued by the Magistrates Court. You can mention it if you wish to and explain it is paid.

4. Your friends/family in home country. Note it is NOT asking about social media stuff.

5. Your relationship status makes no difference to your application.

6. There is no longer a 'window' service. The premium service centres are closed. You need to apply through UKCVAS Sopra Steria. They have various options you can choose.
