I went and spoke to quiet a few of the very best solicitors in London. They all declined to accept my case, because of the huge gap. They were certain I will not get my ILR. However I applied myself through post on February 27 with the normal documents as requested on the back of the form. They did ...

Its getting tougher and playing with lives of hard working professionals who make a valuable contribution to the economy.

Surprisingly, I had started a similar thread at that time in 2005.

I was told that the 4-month gap should not be a problem.

Yes agreed technically I could be deemed as an overstayer between July and September 2004. The delay was caused because there were additional documents that Work Permits UK requested from my Employers at that time. This caused a delay in the WP approval. Now why should I be responsible and made liab...

How can I be classified as an overstayer for that period? According to the HO the definition of an overstayer is as follows: An overstayer is a person who was granted limited leave to enter or remain in the United Kingdom, but who neither left the country on the date indicated nor asked for the leav...

I was late by 1 and a half months in submitting FLR in 2004

Gosh. This is driving me nuts. My previous leave in 2004 expired on 6 July 2004, although my Employers put the new WP application before the expiry of the leave, I was able to only send the FLR on 1 September 2004. There was a delay in the processing of the WP application because the HO wanted some ...

WP Docs?

How can an employee carry WP docs? The WP docs are an arrangement between the employer and the HO.

It is not practical for the employee to carry WP docs always. And I don't see the point in taking them along.

I feel extremely sorry of hearing of your cancellation. I am about to apply for my ILR in December, and I am in a very similar predicament.
