You are not British yet. You are only British once you have attended the ceremony and received your certificate.

Re: FLR (M) application. Document scanning/uploading

You can use inline statement and a digital off employer letter.

You upload AFTER you have applied and paid online. Your documents however must be date on or before the date you submit and pay online.

Re: Tier-2 general to ILR

The question is quite clear asking for ANY absence from the uk during the qualifying period. Absence is absence and all absence count

Re: Tier-2 general to ILR

1. It is countries you have LIVED in, not visited

2. Correct

3. Visa remains valid till expiry date, free to travel.

4. Visa remains valid till expiry date, free to travel. Citizenship is not an immigration application.

This one. Both of their 5 years start again from scratch.

A person cannot combine Skilled Worker main visa time with PBS Dependent time to make up 5 years for ILR.

So in principle I can still reenter the UK with my BRP if I booked the ceremony after I come back to the UK?
You are only British AFTER your ceremony, not from 'approval letter' date. Until you have attended your ceremony, you are simply a foreign passport holder with ILR.

Re: documents needed from my spuse for my naturalisation

The instructions are quite clear so not sure why you are confused. You need the passport AND the marriage cert.

Re: Child Benefit

If you are from Pakistan on a Tier 2 General, you are not permitted to claim benefits. It is a breach of your visa conditions.
You cannot:

apply for most benefits (public funds), or the State Pension
change jobs or employer unless you apply to update your visa

You are not allowed to claim benefits. Your BRP would clearly state you have 'no recourse to public funds'. Child benefits is public funds.

Re: Family visa

You were already advised last year of the difficulties in trying to get this visa and the impact a refused application would have on any future visitor visas. Nothing has changed in the advice. https://www.immigrationboards.com/immigration-for-family-members/dependent-visa-for-elderly-widowed-mother...

Re: Tier 2 Continuation for ILR

Your ILR clock has reset to zero, so you start again for the qualifying period for ILR as a dependent.

If you then switch back to Skilled Worker visa, your clock resets again.
