^^ thanks for answering my question. Much appreciated. Didn't get your laast sentence. Did you say I already have unspent conviction? It is a debt I need to pay but not summoned or convicted in the court. I didn't say you have a conviction. You said in your first post that you have a conviction for...

Another piece of outdated information being handed out by another par-boiled expert. Initially cautions were not part of rehabilitation of offenders act, but now cautions are part of rehabilitation of offenders act, and they have given a rehabilitation of zero days. I do not know the rationale behin...

Rather than going deep into details, I will give you a basic idea as to what criminal conviction is. Any court summons/hearings that ask you to either plead guilty or not guilty, are summons/hearings of a criminal proceeding, and needles to say a conviction from a criminal proceeding is going to be ...

Here is a post that I made in past, not everything is relevant in your case, but it does clarify about traffic convictions, crb checks etc. Hope it helps. I do have some knowledge about these court and police procedures. Many a times, police issues FPN's and they are not regarded as conviction and ...

Please do not rely on CRB check to find out if you have any criminal convictions. Recently I made a detailed post about this confusing matter. I will try to search it and post it here again.

Now you cannot argue on the points of debate, and just come up with unrelated blubber. The point is, what I mentioned that spent convictions do not need to be disclosed, is correct.

I have called UKBA few times to clarify if caution needs to be disclosed or not. This is a bit of grey area as it's not a conviction however 3 advisors I spoke to strongly recommended declaring it on application as it will appear on police report. It will not however affect the application. Safest ...

I suggest you read rehabilitation of offenders act 1974 mr casa the moderator. And that "thin ice" means nothing and your moderator status is nothing.

Yes, I totally agree with you. To be honest, I never looked at the differences in the wording between the two forms. But I would say, that according to rehabilitation of offenders act (ROA), you do not need to disclose the spent conviction. So even when UKBA has expressly not mentioned ROA, you stil...

In UK County Court Judgments (CCJs) stay on your record for six years from the date of the judgment. After six years CCJs are automatically deleted, whether the judgment has been paid (satisfied) or not. Your judgement in US was handed down more than 6 years ago, so no need to mention them. Even cri...

It doesn't matter "how" they are. The case will be won or lost on the basis of law. No one there, judges or presenting officers have any personal scores that they want to settle with you.

So that means a shortfall of 9 months. I would say, applying for DL to cover 9 months is a long shot and will most likely be fatal. I ain't clued up about PBS student route, but if possible you could look into further extending using study route for another year or more. Other members might be able ...

By the way, when will you complete your 10 years?
On a personal note, Why not do a quick wedding in register office, and then at a later date do the "full works" on a later date in a church wedding or blessing or something :)

Your solicitors idea is totally flawed and by suggesting this, it shows that he doesn't understand the rules properly. Lucapooka's advice is sound and I fully second it. There is no chance that you will get DL based on article 8. Nowadays many stupid advisors give false hope to applicants by citing ...

There is no interview.

Sorry forgot to ask, Do you know how much we should have in our bank accounts????

We both are working full time and are saving for our wedding! We have a combined income of 2100pounds after tax every month.
Do you only have joint bank accounts as proof of cohabiting?
