Re: Application for ILR proof of address if there is a break in the tenancy agreement.

To add to my last comment,
I probably should have mentioned that I applied for ILR on 10 year route (A very important detail that I missed out, sorry).

Re: Application for ILR proof of address if there is a break in the tenancy agreement.

re point 1, oh really? I posted about it here at the time and I was advised that it may be risky to travel without changing her visa since I'm changing from a tier 2 work visa to ILR.

Self Employment Income Support Scheme - COVID 19 Spouse Visa

Hi I've believe I've had a thorough look through other posts however I wasn't able to find anything that answers my questions. I'm very sorry if this has been asked before and I've missed the other post. I'm a British Citizen (10 year route) and my wife is in UK on a Spouse/Partner visa. She will be...

Re: Visit visa application for mother in law refused

Hi Thanks for your reply. What I meant was that my mother in law won't be spending any of her own money. It won't allow me to put zero in that field so I'm wondering if I should just put £1 and explain that sponsors (my wife and I) will be paying for everything. Since we already applied for 6 month ...

Re: Visit visa application for mother in law refused

One of the questions on the application form is "How much money are you personally planning to spend on your visit to the UK?" I don't expect my mother in law to spend any of her own money. What should I put in this field? It won't take a value of zero? For the sake of some background When I applied...

Regarding economic ties the problem I've got is that she is a housewife and has never had a job. As such she isn't earning a pension or any kind of investment. The only thing we were able to show is that she owns the house she lives in (4 bedroom detached house). Her sons who live in Dubai and Japan...

Re: Visit visa application for mother in law refused

The first time, we applied for a 6 month visa although it was likely that my mother in law would have only stayed for about 4 months. I put 6 months just in case. Given that the first application was refused. If I was to now apply asking for only 4 months is that likely to harm the application. One ...

Re: How much money are you planning to spend on your visit to the UK?

I did the same thing. I put I think $10. I had a cover letter explaining my mother's purpose of visit and that she has no income because she is a housewife. And a Letter of Sponsorship stating that I am sponsoring my mother financially, accommodation, flights, food, etc. I showed 3 months of bank s...

I'm wondering the same. My wife applied for extension to stay as a dependent and I'm wondering if I need to return the old BRP. It doesn't say anything like that on the letter?

Last couple of questions (hopefully). 1.

Translation of documents - Marriage Certificate

Hi

I have an English translation of my marriage certificate that I obtained in Sri Lanka.
Would I need to get a translation again in UK?

When I applied for the spouse visa last time I submitted the translation I have and it didn't cause any problems, but I thought I'd ask just to be sure.

Thank You

Am I correct in thinking that the documents supplied need not be originals and can be those printed online. I've lost one of the pay slips (from October) and my employer has provided a copy that is on A4 paper so it doesn't look like the other pay slips. I also haven't received my bank statements fo...

Re: IELTS for extension. Is it worth doing B1 in my situation

Thanks again for the reply. Wife did the test this Sunday gone and we have already received the certificate. I thought that was quite fast.
When showing earnings, are you giving pay slips to cover the last six months, or would a letter from the employer be sufficient?
