Hi,

It is unfortunate all these things happened. I won't recommend telling HO about this before your application. You might say the wrong things or phrase during the phone call that can be used against you when you apply. You should get yourself good legal advice. If money is tight.. start saving now for at least a year to get legal advice. Most good lawyers would need £1000 for the whole application process including pre-application assessment.

Thanks
Dydx

Hello Everybody
I find this forum very informative,interesting and excellent for migrants .
I am looking forward to apply for ILR on refugee basis next year january 2019.During my refugee leave of 5 years I have made some mistakes whivh are a bit scary now.I would like to hear from knowledgeable users and those who have gone through almost same circumstances.
1. I received a court fine of £190 for travelling with a friends student oyster ,taken to court by evil tfl in2015.
2. I received a ccj for not paying a mobile bill of £250 in 2015.
3. After getting refugee status in 2014 I made a blunder by obtaining a national passport of my country, although never travelled to my home country or anwhere on it ,just obtained it to use as an id to open bank act.
These 3 things are constantly circling in my mind whenever I think of my ilr application in jan 2019.
I am hopeful that I will be successful .I will appreciate if some of you can share your opinions &experince on it.Thank you.

Thanks for your reply.Consulting a lawyer &paying them 1k isnt a sensible thing in refugee ilr in particular as it is a simple&straightforward application which HO itself asks you to submit .Yes I have sought some opinions from some lawyers&some of them say it is now depended on ho how they treat my mistakes.I think court cases arent serious as ho only refuses you if commit a crime &get imprisoned whic isnt in my case.National passport is a bit serious but I havent used it for travel anywhere&asked ho on phone before making it but the person on phone didnt say anything.I have seen a few cases where refugees got ilr even having natinal passports.I would like to hear from senior members& the refugees who were in similar citcumstances .Thank you everybody.

Thank you hadaiq, I applied only for myself so no dependant. I did send only my BRP and travel document and nothing else and no solicitor.

New statement of changes to the Immigration Rules: HC 1534 - A positive development as it seems

...the Secretary of State will return an applicant’s ID while the application is outstanding, unless he “considers it necessary to retain it”. This is welcome news. Not having a passport can be problematic: it is needed to give notice of an intention to marry or sit the English language / Life in the UK tests. However, leaving the UK while an application is pending will still result in the application being treated as withdrawn....

...Another positive development is being able to submit copies of documents rather than originals. These changes are made throughout the Rules, where all references to “original” (as far as I could see) were deleted and/or replaced with “copies”. This can save applicants money and administrative nightmares...

Thus, there is the hope that applicants will be able to receive back their convention travel documents/passports, even maybe their expired/expiring BRPs while their application is considered. This could definitely help with administrative day to day matters, including proving right to work, rent, bank, take SELT?LITUK tests, etc. while their application is being considered.
