few learning points from my current application for dependants (Applicant has applied few months ahead)
1- you can apply >28 days prior to the expiry of current Tier2 visa of dependants
2- you only need to show maintenance for the dependants only and no need to provide maintenance for yourself
3- Home office retain the old BRP
