NEED URGENT ADVICE on PBS DEPENDENT EXTENSION leave to remain

Post by joe_2010 » Fri Feb 23, 2018 7:31 pm

Hi,

I am writing to enquire about the extension of my husband's visa. My Husband's dependent visa (PBS dependent leave to remain) is due to expire in the month of March 2018 and we would like to apply for an extension. At the time when my husband applied as my dependent I was holding a tier 1 visa but now I am a permanent resident with indefinite leave to remain. After the birth of my second child I stopped working and am currently unemployed. My husband is employed full-time.

I would like to know if my unemployment status would affect my husband's visa extension. Please could you let us know.

Best Regards
Joe

if you have ILR, then your unemployment shouldn't affect his extension application, assuming that he can satisfy the requirements.

Hi,

Is there a link where I could find latest checklist of documents for dependent visa xtension ?

Also , while submitting photocopies of passports/BRP of family i.e wife ( on ILR ) and children ( British citizens) should they be certified by lawyer / gov official as true copy ?

Best regards,
Joe

Hi,

I would like to know which form needs to be filled as my husband was previously granted PBS dependant( leave to remain) for 3 years.This is now due to expire on 11 March 2018 .He was initially granted visa as tier 1 dependant and later changed to PBS dependant Leave to remain as my visa status changed to ILR.

Should I apply using Tier 1 or 5 PBS dependant( version 04/2017) form or apply online through gov.uk website
https://visas-immigration.service.gov.u ... ily-routes ?

Kindly provide your suggestions asap.

Best Regards,
Joe

tier 1 dependant and later changed to PBS dependant
They are the SAME visa category.

You must apply on the Tier 1 Dependent form.

If you use the form in the link you have provided, your spouses' clock towards ILR will be reset to zero and a new 5 year residence period before they will qualify for ILR.

Have you read the links that 'vinny' provided properly, which also contains links??
