Hey can i just ask how long before my visa expires do i have to apply by post?

For example, can i apply for set(lr) through post on 25th of September if my visa expires on the 29th? Or is there a certain time before my visa expires that i have to apply?

You must meet the 10 years legal residence requirement minus a maximum of 28 days. You must apply before your visa expires. There is no set time other than 'within 28 days before reaching 10 years'.

What is his full UK immigration history??

4 years 6 months student
2 year PSW
3 years Enterpreneur
5 months EU FM

Thanks
For the 5 months EU FM, he will need all the evidence that you are a qualified person exercising treaty rights, i.e. payslips, bank statements, evidence of cohabitation etc.

HO might also ask for some documents related to his time on Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa.
I do have payslip, evidence of pay into our joint bank account, do we need to give home office more pictures and bills as we gave for our EU spouse application?. i have changed jobs three times in last 5 months i dont think it should be a problem. This job i have at the moment is agency work and pay is weekly. Therefore i am worried that he will not be able to show wages for two weeks. Can it go agaist his application.
i dont know much details about entrepreneural visa documents, I Can ask him for more detail. What i am aware of that he was running his compnay till he received a document called "comfirmqtion of application with work allowed" from home office. After receiving that document he resigned from the company and compnay is closed now. During his entrepreneurial time his compnay was being run according to home office requirements he had 2 employees in his company and was getting payed from his company too. Our relationship is 3 years old but we got married last December. Application for residence permit was submited in January.
His entrepreneurial visa expired in May this year

Thanks
Dear memebers
Can someone please assist me with my question

1st thanks to Allah and then members of the forum who helped me when ever I needed. Today I received my ILR approval letter along with all the documents after a long wait of 11 months. The wait was really frustrating but with happy ending. I pray for a positive decesion for all those who are still waiting.

Thanks again and all the best.

Yes you will get a refund for any application that is not yet been decided and you vary it into another category.

Good evening
today was my appointment at a premium service and with the grace of almighty Allah my visa for indefinite leave got approved .

I have been a silent reader of this forum for so many year,but for some reason I fogot the password of my account and with my best efforts I could not retrieve my account.
came in uk 2007. my main concern was break in continuity of long term residence because i have stayed out of country in 2012, for moan 240 days in one go. but i had exceptionally compassionate circumstances.my father passed away and i had fallen sick over seas. i was admitted in hospital and thenw as told to have bed rest for 3 months. i had all the documents and thanks to Allah, today i got my indefinite with in 2 and half hour.
my case was complex. one of my visa got rejected in past then i had to spend a year in courts. lost appeal in first tribunal and then my partner completed her 10 years and we withdraw her appeal for the permission of upper tribunal and submit a new case for ilr and i my self applied as her spouse. and then it got approved.

i have strong believe if you have genuine case you should go to the premium service with all the relevant documents and you will get indefinite.

thank you very much for all the help i received on this forum

best regards

I have applied SET (LR) application on 18 June 2016. 24 May I received questioner. I had amendments year 10/11 & 12/13. 12 Sep 2017 I received refusal letter. Now they refused under paragraph 322(5) of the immigration rules on the basis that conduct, character and association were such that presence in the UK was undesirable. I have applied for Pre-Action Protocol. Please guide me what could be happen. Any chances to win, please guide me. Thanks
