Thanks for correcting me sushdmehta - it makes it a lot better for those applying. I had a friend whose wife was in the UK for a few years before they got married but changed her visa post marriage becoming his dependant.

Hi Mate, Congrats first and I know you had a great sigh of relief!! You said you changed two employers on Work Permits. Did he ask for all the P60's for last 5 years or just the employee letters.

Its a very simple process. There are many companies who can do the CRB check on your behalf - remember you cannot request one from the govt directly yourself, its only potential employers who can request for one. However, a provision has been made to allow anyone to get themselves checked and the wa...

When it comes down to the actual letter of the law, you, unfortunately do not qualify. Technically you have been here for 5 years BUT as a dependant applicant, you do not meet the so required siper-set rules of applying AS a dependant. To clarify further, for a main applicant to apply for a dependan...

Is that dividend not an income for you? Doesnt that amount help towards monthly expenses? It does and so it is you monthly income and hence you need to add all sources from where you get income and put the total figure of £3000. If there was a separate section for income from other sources then tha...

If you have your last 3 statements showing salary paid, preferably highlighting employer name and carry the original contract you should be fine as this is ample proof that you are working for the company. Try to time your application as soon as you receive your salary/ bank statement to prove you a...

Always take advice from us members with a pinch of salt. I say this because job hunting and bagging that great offer is all very dependant on the candidate in question. A really quick look on Cityjobs throws up so many BA roles - both contracts and perm roles with salaries from as low as £35k to as...

trust me, the first lawyer was rubbish - many with over 180 days and most of Annual Leave have applied in person and been successful. In your case, any lawyer can make a strong case for you without any trouble at all. Good for you to take a second opinion and to go ahead - dont worry at all. If it w...
