My name is Francine, and I’m the Legal Category Moderator for JustAnswer. My job is to assist customers with pending questions for the Legal Experts here at JustAnswer.
I'm sorry you haven't received an answer yet.
The response rate on JustAnswer is usually over 95%, but delays can result depending on the number of Experts online, the question volume, and the difficulty level of the question.
If you would still like to receive an answer from an Expert, just let me know, and I will do my best to assist you by finding an Expert to help you.
Thank you for your question.
Please could you give me a little history about your case
1. When did you arrive in UK?
2. What type of visa?
3. When did the visa expire?
4. When did you make your application for post study visa?
5. What information did the UKBA request?
6. Why exactly did you not respond to their e-mail?
I arrived in the UK on the Jun 2006
I came as a student but I kept changing colleges
my visa has expired on 31 august 2010 I sent my application form the same day by courier service in Durham homeoffice but I got paper from them that they received my application dated 1/9/2010.
in November 2010 they requested previous certificates for other courses.
by the way the previous course I stopped attending it so I didnt get its certificate.
I only was applying for PSW tier 1 from other course I didnt inform the UKBA about it but was in the same period of the visa.
I didnt notice they sent me email.
Do you agree that at the moment your in the UK without a valid visa?
What are your personal circumstances? Are you married? Do you have any children? If so, where are they?
Thank you for the additional information.
I am afraid that you have a number of problems: first you delayed sending your application until the day your visa expired; second you did not respond to the request for additional information. third you have no evidence that you completed your course.
As you have agreed to voluntary departure there is very little I can assist you with now. Having looked at all the information you have provided I cannot see any grounds to appeal the UKBA decision at this stage.
I am sorry that I cannot be more positive.
