ILR with police caution - help?

Hi everyone,

I got two parts of my query, and I will be grateful if i can seek some help on some of the following confusions

1st query:

I will be eligible for my application for ILR in Dec13 following my 5 year work permit. However, I am very much worried about a simple caution i reacieved in Aug 2009 ( harassment without voilence). I know this is out of threshold that is 24 months,however i still worried if this can be a trouble. so if someone senior ( solicitor or lawyer) can answer the following

1- what is chances to be refused on general grounds?
2- will it make any difference if i seek help from some solicitor
3- should i disclose caution in applicatin
4- will it make any difference if a select a particular PCO office?

P.S- my 10 years stay will also be completed in Aug 2014.


2nd Query:

I married in Uk 3 years ago bt my wife is on her student visa. we had baby (1year old) who is dependent to wife. what should i do for my wife and baby?

Is it sensible if i apply for myself at this stage & once i get approval for my ILR I can then apply for my wife and baby? or should I apply all three at this stage which can be bit complicated if i apply in person

Will be grateful for any guidance.
Thanks

Declare the caution and as 24 months has lapsed it shouldn't be a general grounds for refusal. Subject to the offence, I.e. a sexual offence with registration requirements.

Where was your child born? Has your spouse been on a dep visa since before July 2012?

Dear D4109125,

Many thanks for your prompt response. Much appreciated.

2 points following your response:

1- I could not understand your meaning of "Subject to offence"

2 -answer to your query- my wife had not been dependent on me since she came in uk. she came on student visa and she applied for extension in student visa in 2011 when old one was to exprire and she same time applied for our baby visa (dependent to my wife) after her birth. Our baby was born in UK.

Thansk

P.S- should i contact some solicitor for my application or this will not make any difference in regard to caution?

The child does not need an extension/ILR instead the child is entitled to register as British by virtue of section 1(3) BNA once you are awarded ILR.

Your wife could apply for FLR(M) when you are settled, which is now a 5 year route to settlement with a financial requirement.

Just wanted to know the scope on the following:

As I am on work permit which was issued under the old system in Sept 2008. if my wife changes her student visa as dependent on me so that she could get a route of 2 year when i apply for ILR which is due in Dec13.

Is this doable?

What i want further consultation from you? any address?

Thanks

Under the old work permit if your wife changes in October which will allow switching in the UK she should be able to apply for ILR with you in December.

The 2 years requirement is not applicable for work permit dependants.

As Amber stated, if baby was born in the UK, then baby will be entitled to British citizenship immediately after you are granted ILR.

Hi D4109125 / vinny
I just tried couple of solicitors today but could not find anyone good. one told that my wife can not apply to switch for visa from here. she has to go back this purpose and also that she might not be able to switch visa as mine visa is near to expire. plus even if she will able to switch she should have to wait for 5 years for ILR once i get in dec.

really puzzling. I wish if i could seeks help from both in person.
please help , i dont want to miss an opportunity if there is one exists, which can make us avoid to go long way.

thanks

Hi jan123,
Click word "not" on the link provided by vinny, hopefully, it will resolves your confusion.
Also, From October 2013 one can switch within UK without leaving UK to get EC. Please read Page 10 section 7.21, 7.22 (EXPLANATORY MEMORANDUM)

regards,

Yes. She may switch to work permit dependant (196A, 61) from 1 Oct 2013.
