Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
Yes, of course that makes sense but for a matter of 2 months would my past 9.5 years be written off?
Why did you believe you had 90 days??I thought I had 90 days time after my visa expires to reapply.
Seems a bit harsh that HO would write off the 9.5 years for a matter of 58 days.
ILR is NOT a 'visa'. What you might be reading is either a) people being granted FLR(FP) Parent or Partner or EEA RC if married to an EU citizen or b) the previous ILR based on 14 years where NO legal stay was required, this is no longer available. Being an 'overstayer for years' does not give ILR and many have likely face expensive appeals etc. Remember that many members who post on forums don't always state their whole story and often leave out key or 'unpleasant' information.I have heard on thai forum of people overstaying for years and still somehow managed to get a visa. So this leaves me very confused.

Are you able to meet the £18,600 p.a minimum income level
Yes, you can apply within the UK.Can I apply for this while I am still here in the UK or would I need to leave and apply for my country.
As you are an overstayer, your case would not be 'straightforward' and regardless of which option you choose on UKCVAS Sopra Steria, you are unlikely to get a speedy response if, for example you chose and paid for Super Priority 24 hour service. There is also no longer a premium same day service as the PSC/PEOs have closed.Also - how long would it take to get a conclusion on the FLR? I have previously always gone for the same day express service by paying a premium.
Yes.I'm guessing this would mean I have to restart my 5 or 10 year route?
No.If so - does it not count that I have been married and lived with a British citizen? Is there another resident permit that takes this into consideration?
The forms are online now. There is no in person service anymore at PSC/PEO, as already stated. You have to pay extra to use the UKCVAS Sopra Steria service. You are unlikely to get an 'express' or quick decision.So can I just downlaod the FLR form, fill it and submit it in person using the express service like I did the last time? Or do I have to post it?
