Hi, I have got some info from the ukba website on long residence but that i different from your reply. First, I can apply 28 days before the completion of 10 years. Second, my depandent specially my wife would not be able to apply for ILR as my ILR will be based on long residence rule. She has to apply as my dependent once i get the ILR. But not sure about my son. I could be wrong so could you please back your argument regarding my wife's ILR
You are correct in stating that you can make an application 28 days beore your Visa expires. In fact, if you make you application more than 28 days before your visa expires, it will be returned to you.
You are corect in stating that your wife will not be eligible to apply for ILR on the basis of your long residence, however, if she has a SPouse Visa, she will be able to apply for ILR once the Spouse Visa expires (28 days before).
I will need to ascertain what type of Visa your wife actually has and on what basis it was granted before being able to provide a definitive answer.
I hope this helps.
If you have a work permit, you will be able to apply for ILR after 10 years. Once you have been granted ILR, you will have to wait 12 months before you can be Naturalised as a UK Citizen.
If your wife has a Dependant Visa, once you have been granted ILR, your wife will need to make an application for a Spouse Visa, as you have been married for more than 4 years and by this time you would have been granted ILR, your wife and child will also be able to apply.
I hope this helps. If so, kindly click accept.
If you wish to discuss, please feel free to ask further questions.
Yes it does.
