Hi,I am willing to apply in July 2013 for ILR
I came to UK on 9 july 2006,on working holiday maker visa,i got visa stamped on 15 may 2006,then switched to HSMP visa on 2 feb 2008 i got hsmp visa stamped,then i applied for extension in january2010,but it was rejected so i applied for Appeal and got visa in sep-2010,now i want to apply for ILR, as i completes the 5 yrs since feb 2008-feb2013 but as my visa is valid till sep 2013 so due to fund maintenance all i thought to apply in july as per i have few doubts i want to get clear about it
-> shall i go for set (o) form or i come under any other form category?
->if i go for premium service what will be fee for me and one dependent
->do i need to maintain funds for 3 months? if yes how much for main applicant and one dependent?
->what is criteria for absence from UK in 5 years
i have crossed 180 days (stayed outside UK) in 5 years,at one instance in 2011, due to emergency (accident), i have stayed for 91 days (stayed outside UK),excluding days of travel,so what are my options ???
For my wife she joined me in aug-2009 and she was here till oct 2010 then she came back in march 2011 and went back to india in june 2011 again back to uk in nov 2011 due to her ill health she again went bck to indian aug 2012 came bck in feb 2013 can she also apply with me for ILR
