Re: Physical presence on the actual date 5 years before making the application

I would go for (2). Make sure you meet all the requirements on 14th July 2016 (you were physically in UK on that date and meet the residence requirements within the new qualifying period) if you redeclare your date as 13th July 2021. You have been lucky that CW gave you an option to redeclare the ap...

Thanks Cullinan for the quick reply. Does this usual 28 day lag also apply to paid appointments?
Yes. You can always try the trick to find earlier cancellations/free appointments as suggested above.

Counting backwards from that date: 1) You should not be outside UK for more than 90 days in last 12 months. 2) You sh...

Re: ccj and naturlisation

You should declare ALL CCJs even if they are 6 years old. It will NOT affect your application though if its paid/you are on a repayment plan etc. Leave the notes that you have paid it etc.
Good character requirements go back to 10 years.
