hmmm I don't want to apply for FLR(M) and wait for another 5 years for ILR. I am happy to pay extra and get over with the procedure.
according to this --http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/visas ... ependants/
"Your partner can apply for settlement at the same time as you apply for settlement, if:
you and they have been living together in the UK for at least 2 years in a marriage or civil partnership, or in a relationship similar to marriage or civil partnership, and that relationship is still genuine (not a 'marriage of convenience', for example);
they have previously been given permission to enter or stay in the UK as your husband, wife, civil partner, unmarried partner or same-sex partner;
SO, Even if I have tier 1 dependent visa for months - I should be eligible to apply for ILR dependent along with my husband. Also, we have been living together since 5+ years. is it right???
