She cannot apply for ILR on Set(O) if you vary. She only has the option of FLR(M) which will reset her clock to zero and a new 5 year route to ILR. You will have to vary hers and ask for it to be held till your ILR decision is made.

Why do you want to vary to Set(LR)?
Some Solicitor advised me that you can vary from SET(o) to SET (lR) before 28 days (completion of 10 years) and leave wife's application pending as dependent SET(O). Once I got SET(LR) you can vary her application. Is that true? One more thing if for some reason I get refusal then apply for appeal then what would be my wife's status and what application i can apply for her?

Thanks

Congratulations to you. It's a good thing to see SET (LR) approval within the service standard after a while. Some of us are still waiting, hoping and praying. Do enjoy your freedom

Yes you will because she does not qualify for Tier 1 dependent IF your long residence ILR is successful. She must apply to vary to FLR(M) which will only be granted (if she qualifies) if your ILR is granted. You must ask them to hold her application till your ILR LR is decided.

Thanks CR001, so should I vary my application only at this time and ask them to hold the decision on her previous application. Once my long residence ILR is granted then i can ask them to vary her? Am I right ?

Re: Long Residence (10 years) applications 3 months Short

Post by shiponahmmed2017 » Fri Jul 07, 2017 1:57 pm

Hi, all- My visa expires o 28th August 2017 (studying phd) which will be totalling of 9 years and 8 months. So 4 months short of my 10 years long residency. I had visited a soliciotor today who advised me to apply for ILR straight way rather than applying on any other grounds such as- FLR (FP) or others where i could borrow some time.

Do you think it is the right way to move on? as he is a reputable barrister on immigration. Please put suggestions. Thanks

Hi
We have heard that the case worker would normally consider the date of decisions rather than the date of application when making decision. You may be lucky for your decision to be more that 3 months. I made my application 3 months earlier in November and um yet to get a decision on my application. I will actually advice you go for an early application rather than FLR route that yyou do not qualify for.
All the best to you and us!

What did the refusal letter say exactly? What document 'couldn't be verified'? Has your visa already expired, if so when?

The issue you have is that you are now an overstayer. Which impacts your ability to qualify for long residence ILR. Have you been given the option if Administrative Review?

Hi, I only received the decision last Thursday, How could it be overstayer? Don't I have 28 days ? Yes I have given option to submit further documents.

1. Yes, provided you meet ALL the requirements, ie 10 years of valid visa status's, within the absence limit including no single absence of more than 180 days, have LIUK and meet the English requirement.

2. No, there is no fee exemption for ILR unless you are a refugee applying on form Set(P). You will have to pay the full fee.

Hi, I've a question. Shall I go to premium service to Switch my Set(O) to SET (LR)? AS I had interview with them regarding earnings. Does it leave negative impression to switch to LR after had interview and they can ask that your other pending application is also ILR so why you are switching to another ILR app. Or I can just can switch without explaining reason?

Also postal is better or Premium service. too confused what to dooo ?

anyone help much be appreciated .

No, you do not have 28 days. You now only have 14 days and that is to either make a new application or apply for Administrative Review, which is only applicable if you believe HO have made an error. You cannot submit new evidence for Administrative Review. If AR fails, you are still an overstayer from the date your visa expired and therefore a break in your long residence. The period of overstay will only be ignored IF your AR is successful.

What do you mean 'submit further documents'? What exactly does the letter say?

Unless you provide more info, it is impossible for anyone to over advice.

You won't get a decision on the day if you vary to Set(LR) as the premium centre won't have your documents. You need to vary your dependent to FLR(M) as she won't qualify for the Set(O) currently pending if you vary to SET(LR). The same checks will be done for Set(LR), so if you have income and tax discrepancies, they will be checked and raised again.

Thanks CR001. So should i need to give them the reason for switching or not? and I sent her's application as Teir 1 (dependent extension) not dependent of as Set (o). So still need to vary to FLR(M)?

Don't think you need a reason but ILR to ILR variation is not very common. She will NOT qualify for a Tier 1 dependent extension if you apply for ILR LR. She must switch/vary to FLR(M), asking HO to hold her FLR(M) application decision till your LR ILR is decided.
