Unfortunately, you can't. She will need to wait for 5 years on FLR(M).As my understanding I can combine time spent on both Tier 1 General dependant and FLR(M) dependant for continueous residency. She is already completed 5 years 3 months.
You are mistaken and jumped to the wrong conclusion from a simple question that was asked. The immigration rules (link below) permitted your spouse to continue on PBS Dependent if you got ILR through the 5 year Tier 1 General route. But as you switched to FLR(M), her clock reset to zero and she will nee 5 years on FLR(M) as well as your son.vpunacha wrote: ↑Wed Apr 11, 2018 3:58 pmThank you CR0001 for the clarification.
I switched her visa, becuase I did not had option to extend the visa on same type as I already got ILR.
Even in the immigration the officer asked me why you are in ILR and your wife is on tier 1 general dependant visa. (i.e. coming from holiday before her visa extension)
Your son will qualify for ILR when your wife does. They will both have to extend their FLR(M) visa for a further 2.5 years.
You did have the option, you just didn't ask about it for advice.I switched her visa, becuase I did not had option to extend the visa on same type as I already got ILR.
You should have checked with the forum or an advisor or read the rules first. A simply answer to the IO would have been " yes I got ILR based on Tier 1 and my wife will extend her visa".Even in the immigration the officer asked me why you are in ILR and your wife is on tier 1 general dependant visa. (i.e. coming from holiday before her visa extension).
So i.e. the reason I have applied for FLR(M) dependant.
Yes.That means both my wife and son need to wait 2.5 years for ILR. ii.e after the extension of FLR(M)
