Why did they switch to FLR(M) and not extend on Tier 1 dependent?they switched to Dependent Leave to remain route and got their BRP issued in March 2018 until Sep 2020.
No, by switching to FLR(M) it has reset their clock to zero and a new 5 year route to ILR.Now my question is: can they apply for ILR by counting the period under T1 dependent which started April 2015 (3 yeras) + 2 years under dependant leave to remain / or do I have to start all over again and count 5 years from March 2018 under dependant leave to remain route?
If you got ILR based on PBS route 5 years residence, then yes, dependents could have continue in PBS Dependent visa until they qualified for ILR. The rules permitted this, see link below. Not the same rule though if you applied for ILR based on 10 years long residence.They have switched to dependant leave to remain route because I have already got my ILR, I did not think that they could extend their T-1 dependant although I switched to ILR , was this possible?
Unfortunately the children will have to follow the same route as your spouse and get ILR first.I have another question please, if I received my citizenship this year, will I be able to grant citizenship for my children who were born outside UK? or do they have to complete the 5 years under this route?
If they applied within the UK, then the form for 'dependent of settled person' is the FLR(M) form you would have completed.I don't know what is FLR(M), but I have applied for what is called 'Dependant of settled person'' visa which is granted for 2.5 years.
Unfortunately not. 5 years on their current visa.For me it make more sense that home office will consider the 3 years my family spent in UK till today (under Tier1 dependant visa) plus two more years in the future (under ILR dependant) for them to be eligible for ILR.
