Was your spouse granted ILR as a PBS applicant?

My wife is ILR dependent and going to finish 2 years in July 14.

We have filled FLR (M) form and she has above 18K salary.

I am ltd company director and earns 660 plus dividend. I take divided every months so do I have to make 3 dividend letters (I am only supplying 3 months earning)?

Why have you completed FLR(M)?

Did you spouse settle as a PBS applicant? State your husband's immigration status.

You are not providing the information that Amber has asked clarification on.

Did your husband get ILR based on 10 years Long Residency and if he did when was it issued?

Or did you husband get ILR based on 5 years on PBS (Tier 1 or Tier 2) visa?

then why are you applying on FLR(M)??

Pre 9 July 2012 rules means you can apply for ILR on SET(O) as a PBS dependent. Switching to FLR(M) will reset your clock and you will have to wait another 5 years.

See Tier 1 section in the link below

I have called home office twice and they mentioned set m form.

I was on tier 1 general and went to my home country to get tier 1 general dependent before 9th July.

A person can only apply on Set(M) if they are already on FLR(M).

Have you looked at the form, it is all list there. Bottom right side of page 2 says who must use Se(O)

Hello there

I am quite confused by now as I phoned uk border helpline office and they suggested that I have to apply Set(m) as my husband current status is as settled in uk and even on his BRP card it is written settlement so that is why I have to go for set(m) as I am applying for Indefinite leave to remain the uk as a partner of present and settled in the uk.

Please give your inputs.

Thanks

It is Set(O). You are not in the UK on a visa as a spouse of a person Settled (ILR). You have a PBS dependent visa. Have you even looked at the form in the link I provided.

HO is known to give out incorrect information.

The only time you can apply on SET(M) is if you have a visa as spouse of person with ILR or a British Citizen and also if you have switched in country on FLR(M) - you have neither.

Yes I am having a visa as a spouse of a person settled (ILR )

I have a granted leave to remain twice,firstly on PBS dependent for 1 year as at that time my hubby was due for 1 remaining year on his tier1 general

And second time when he granted ILR I got another further leave to remain on his ILR

So altogether I have combined visa of PBS dependent and ILR dependent 1 year each.

HO considered these all and then suggested me that I have to go for set m form as before they were also saying set (o) but then after considering the situation their final answer is Set(m)

That is not what you have put in the first post where you state :
Tier 1 General Partner July 2012- October 2013 India 07 July 2012
Tier 1 General Partner October 2013 – October 2015 Inside UK
So advice has been given according to what you have said. Look at your visa and reply exactly what it says, otherwise it is just going to be confusing.

Did you apply to switch on FLR(M) at any point and if so, what dates?

Yes I have switched on Flr(m)

I got these above two visas one as PBS dependent for one year and the other one is on Flr for 2 years

So altogether my 2 year qualifying period on spouse visa is completing on July 2014 so therefore I am intending to applying for ILR

Thanks and sorry for the confusion.
