The new guidance remains ambiguous however, PCNs and PNDs should not create a refusal unless there are for offences such as Drugs and Violence. However, the caseworker will always have the discretion to reject so perhaps waiting until a year has lapsed would be a consideration. VR and Amber - This ...

Re: Good luck on your filing

Heisgood, No need to fret over minor issues. The journey itself is pretty taxing. I believe at the end of it the only value add is freedom of travel. Locally the economy is a mess, next year comes with challenges which will set back any peanut progress that is achieved. There is no way out of the h...
