Based on the information you've provided you cannot apply for naturalisation at the same time as your husband. The earliest you can apply for citizenship is May 2011 as a spouse of a British citizen (you need to have completed 3 years by then though). As you already have ILR you will not come under ...

I don't suppose so. If HO does decide to verify your bank statements, the time it takes to do that depends on the promptness with which which your bank responds to the queries irrespective of the geographical location. For all you know the UK bank may sit on it longer than the US bank. Mention the b...

No!

Visitors are not allowed to apply for tier 1 within UK. You have to obtain an entry clearance from the nearest UK high commision / consulate in your country of residence.

Yes there is one advantage if the baby is born here in UK i.e the child can be registered as a British citizen once the parents obtain ILR. If the baby is born outside this can't be done.

You can claim these benefits only after you've got your ILR.

Why did you have to sign and seal your payslips? Is it not in standard UK format?

May be that's the reason they want to talk to your employer about.
