Re: UKBA forcing 10 years route on me after completing 5 years

Thanks, I will try the complains route - stating the omission of the extant leave. I will keep you posted.

Failing that, what is your thought on the 49 days gap and the Judicial review options?

Re: UKBA forcing 10 years route on me after completing 5 years

Your second point was stated in the reconsideration request sent by the solicitor, but they ignored it. They ignored all the reconsideration representation requests so far.

Are you suggesting we try again?

Or try the judicial review instead, which I may not qualify since it's over 3 months?

Re: UKBA forcing 10 years route on me after completing 5 years

When you applied for your second FLR(M), how long they they grant it for? It was granted for 2.5 years. I had to re-read my post to see why you asked the question: "however, I have a gap of about 301 days from when my.... " That was a typo, I meant to write 30 days. So Sorry. I just the did the cal...

Re: UKBA forcing 10 years route on me after completing 5 years

I got a solicitor to represent me in asking for a review, and the home office didn't respond to any of the representations. They returned the documents to me (instead of the solicitor), and on one occasion they responded with an acknowledgement letter of change of address to the solicitor - this was...

Re: UKBA forcing 10 years route on me after completing 5 years

Thank you vinny and CR001 much appreciated. Good to be able to talk to someone. I am going to find a solicitor to help me draft the reconsideration letter. So you can still apply for ILR based on 10 years long residence in 2020 if you meet the requirements. The feb 10 letter stated that I am not eli...

Re: UKBA forcing 10 years route on me after completing 5 years

I won't be in this mess if the letter category stated the type of "partner route" within Appendix FM. I assumed it was going to be another FLR(M). So given all this info, do you think I got any chance of asking for a reconsideration?

Re: UKBA forcing 10 years route on me after completing 5 years

My apologies vinny and CR001, I misread your question.. got too much on my mind atm.

I applied for my first FLR(M) on the 18 Jan, 2013 and it was grant on the 07 March 2013. So the earliest I can apply for SET(M) according to Appendix A is 08 Feb, 2018.

Re: UKBA forcing 10 years route on me after completing 5 years

Thanks for your response, @vinny. If you had satisfied the 5-year route FLR(M) under D-LTRP.1.1. at the premium appointment on 8 Jan 2018, then the caseworker may have made a mistake. Request a reconsideration. This is true, my FLR(M) was due to expire on the 4 Feb 2018 so I had satisfied the 5-year...

UKBA forcing 10 years route on me after completing 5 years

I am in a serious dilemma here and would use some help/advise. I have been on a 5 year FLRM visa which expired on the 4 Feb, 2018. During the second extension of the FLRM visa 2.5 years ago, I applied 50 days too early due some pressing circumstance with moving jobs. On Jan 8, I applied for ILR at p...

Re: Filled ILR form electronically

I booked the premium service for next week. I filled my forms electronically, that is, filled the PDF forms on my computer, printed the filled forms, then signed them with a black pen. Has anyone done this before? I am hoping they won't frown at it? That's fine. Just make sure the form is the lates...
