Set(m)-applying 28 days prior to end of qualifying period

Hi, I understand there is a general rule that applies to all immigration applications, where you can apply 28 day before reaching the end of the qualifying period (60 months).

Re: SET (m) ILR English language requirement

You do of course risk being refused ILR due to not submitting NARIC for a foreign degree and losing the ILR fee (yes, there have been many refusals for this very reason). If ILR is refused, you then risk HO putting you on the FLR(FP) 10 year partner route and you will need to pay £1000 IHS for this...

Re: ILR Fees for Priority Service

Thanks for the speedy reply.

Is there only an option for 'super priority'?
Does the option for 'priority service' not exist for an ILR application?

Spousal Visa minimum Validity for re-enrty to UK

Hi,

is there a minimum validity required on a spousal visa for re-entry into the uk.

I will be going abroad for 2 weeks and when i return there will be 2 month validity on my spousal visa.

I'm assuming this is not a problem i am currently settled in uk and applying for ilr once my visa expires.

Is there somewhere that clearly sets ...
