Thanks, but a friend of mine told that before applying for my wife's ILR, she should have spent 2 years in UK from the date of application. Thats what is causing bit of worry for me.

Ensure that you have all salary slips and P60 from your employer. If you get electronic salary slips, take a printout and get seal signature on it. Since you are on T1 G, there is no need to worry about anything else. As far as your dependent's staying away from UK, that should not be an issue. She ...

In the past when I got my extension, I had applied 5 months in advance. I had seen many posts where they had applied 10-12 months in advance and had got the visa. g...

They wont ammend the start date. Most case workers ignore it. As per the current rule, a delay of 3 months will impact in future i.e you will have to go for second extension. But the rules are changing soon.
