thank you Zimba. Does it make any difference whether I or my partner are employed/ our financial status at all? Foe example, she just turned a freelancer and I am changing jobs with a few months' break in between.

Re: ILR (LR) few questions

She never exceeded 180 days single absence, but over 10 years she was away for around 640 days. Some of that was due to a 2 months' medical treatment in her home country, which can be proven. She is likely to be unsuccessful and be refused with 640 days absence, regardless of what evidence you have...

In case this is refused (there is a bit more than 540 days absence in 10 years preceding) on the same/next day, There is no discretion on exceeding the absence. The absence limit is very clearly stated in the immigration rules. If she is over 540 days, it will be refused. This is also separate to t...

10 years ILR and naturalisation

Hello members,

I became a BC last year and my wife is applying for 10y LR ILR in August this year.

Can she apply straight away for naturalisation on getting the ILR, without waiting 1 year, since we are married? (Given all other usual conditions are met for naturalisation)?

thanks, SR
