Re: Flr-m biometrics

My question is, will we need to go to Croydon again since they should already have them on the system? Due to the current situation, some people are being contacted by UKVCAS (the third-party partner of UKVI for application services) to re-use existing biometrics. For those not considered eligible ...

ILR Dependant new born applied from India

I don't think there's much more you can do with regards to trying to expedite your case that you haven't already done except perhaps trying to put more pressure on your MP to get involved or trying to get in contact with UKVI again. If your biggest concern is your daughter's school place, you could ...

If she meets the nationality requirements mentioned (amongst other requirements) she would have to be under 31 at the date of application - 30 is an eligible age.

Re: Partner Visa whiles divorce is pending

You will not be able to sponsor her for a partner visa if you are still married to someone else. So, you would have to consider other visa options (work, visit, youth mobility scheme, etc.) depending on her eligibility. Keep in mind that you need to inform the Home Office of the breakdown of your pr...

An "item" is just a piece of correspondence. So each separate bank statement received would be an item, each separate bill received would be an item. They have to be from at least 3 different sources, which it looks like you have. The dates of the items should be spread roughly evenly over the previ...

Re: Returning to the UK after 20 year Absence (UK Spouse VIsa)

Is the company registered in the UK? Would you be paying tax on your income in the UK? If not, you may not be considered to be employed in the UK, which would be a requirement if you were using employment income to meet the financial requirement.

If you want to get married in the UK and be able to stay together after the marriage without your partner having to subsequently leave the UK and apply for a spouse visa from abroad, yes, costs more for that privilege.
