It is, but I find it a bit strange that they did not post any updated forms for ILR applications. What about people who have scheduled to submit their application on the 13 December? Are they supposed to wait until 13 December, before they can complete the new form, and prepare any supporting documents (if any new ones are required?)

Maybe, the new changes will be announced in details on the 13th but will take effect at a later date.

No, they quite clearly say they will be implemented from 13 December:

"All changes other than the exceptions set out below take effect on 13 December 2012."

There are only a few exceptions mentioned.

hi ukswus,

You have a point.

I am applying on the 13th, and I have no option but to check their site time and again for the updated form and guidance.

If it comes through on 12th night, I am not sure how I will get everything right for my appointment on the 13th.

Some mess eh?

I very much sympathize with you.

Another strange thing is that they updated Tier 1 guidance (there are also some updates, although minor ones) mid last week:

And with ILR application, they act as if nothing has changed.

Today is 13th december...Any updates about changes??

All the new rules are updated.
For ex until yesterday, 245HF. Requirements for indefinite leave to remain
had
(a) The applicant must not have one or more unspent convictions within the meaning of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.

NOW it's DELETED

So all new rules are in there now.

What I understand from the new ILR requirements is that now if someone has a Criminal Conviction can apply for an ILR and will get successful. :)

So there is no unspent conviction clause in there, just a question so do we have to declare it on the form or not!!

For ILR I found this....
Requirements:
(a) The applicant must not fall for refusal under the general grounds for refusal, and must not be an illegal entrant. (read the general grounds of refusal below)


Grounds on which leave to remain and variation of leave to enter or remain in the United Kingdom are to be refused

(1C) where the person is seeking indefinite leave to enter or remain:
(i) they have been convicted of an offence for which they have been sentenced to imprisonment for at least 4 years; or
(ii) they have been convicted of an offence for which they have been sentenced to imprisonment for at least 12 months but less than 4 years, unless a period of 15 years has passed since the end of the sentence; or
(iii) they have been convicted of an offence for which they have been sentenced to imprisonment for less than 12 months, unless a period of 7 years has passed since the end of the sentence; or
(iv) they have, within the 24 months preceding the date of the application, been convicted of or admitted an offence for which they have received a non-custodial sentence or other out of court disposal that is recorded on their criminal record.

I hope this is useful

My understanding is FINE is a non custodial sentence...It means for fine one have to wait 24 months....am i right?
