Hi,Thanks for your question. If I have provided you with an answer, kindly click ACCEPT.
You will be able to Switch whilst inside the UK. As soon as your Partner has obtained ILR, he will be able to apply for a Spouse Visa for you. You will be able to make the application whilst in the UK.
If granted, you will be issued a 2 Year Visa, following which you will become eligible for ILR.
If you wish to discuss,please feel free to ask further questions.
You will only be able to add yourself onto his ILR application if you h ave been living in the UK as his dependent. If you have been in the UK on your own visa, this will not allow you to obtain ILR and you will first have to obtain a Spouse Visa.
You cannot now just switch into being his dependent if you are not married and will have to obtain a Spouse Visa once he has obtained his ILR.
If I can assist further, please feel free to ask further questions.
