I am currently in UK on Tier 2 ICT long term visa, which was initially granted (entry clearance) June 2010 as tier 2 ICT -Established Staff, I also have my family including wife and 2 kids less than 18 years in UK as tier 2 dependents the current leave is valid till march 2021.
I have got endorsement for tier 1 Exceptional Talent visa and planning to do stage 2 application, I have some questions regarding dependents.. hope some of the experts here can provide me correct guidance.
1. Do I need to make dependents application at the same time as me. Or can I make my tier 1 Exceptional Talent application and at a later point (few months) do their application.
2. What documents do I need to submit for my dependents if I make application for tier 1 Exceptional Talent Dependent. If you could point me to the right guidance that would be great.
3. Is it mandatory to switch my dependents visa in my case? I am just asking because my dependents already have a valid leave till 2021 and to make a new application I would need to pay application and NHS surcharge,etc.
Thanks for helping out.

Applying outside the UK you need to wait 3 weeks. In some cases, Home Office gives the results on your application earlier. So, I suggest as of now you have already got your results (I saw your post is dated on Dec 27, 2017)
Regarding the bank statement, I wrote about the optional supporting documents in my blog about my Tier 1 ET Visa story - it is not required officially. However, in my case, I applied it just to be sure and show my financial abilities. By the way, I got a positive results after applying this extra doc, so do not think too much about this issue.
