Please could advice for queries(Tier-1 ILR) given below:
Question For Main Applicant
Q1 - I have given the dates of visa stamping for my Tier-1 as below:
Date of first Tier-1 stamping - 01/03/2009
Date of first entry in UK - 15/05/2009
Visa Valid until - 01/03/2012
Date of extension - 03/04/2012
Visa Valid until - 03/04/2014
If you observe the dates of extension, i have got a grace of 1 month, as i had applied for extension by post.
Considering the dates, as per the date of stamping i will complete 5 years on 01/03/2014 and as per date of first entry in UK i will complete 5 years on 15/05/2014.
As per 90 Day rule, i should be able to apply for ILR 28 days before(expiry of current VISA validity) 03/04/2014.
I would like to know, if my understanding correct?
Please could you provide expert advice.
Question For Dependent
Q2 - My wife joined me in UK on 01/08/2011 and stayed in UK until 06/09/2012. She went to India to deliver the baby and returned to UK on 06/08/2013 (after a gap of over 11 months).
Now, as per rule dependent should have spent 2 years in UK with main applicant. But, on 03/04/2014, my wife would complete 1 year and 8 months in UK with me.
Can she apply for ILR with me ?
If no, then can she apply for Tier-1 dependent extension? (I assume For this main should also be applying for Tier-1 extension)
If she cannot apply for Tier-1 dependent extension, then in that case i have to go another extension with my wife. Is my understanding correct?
I would like to know what is maximum absence duration from UK for ILR dependent (considering dependent should be in UK with main application for 2 years)?
Please could you advice.
