Thanks for your prompt response
1. My current leave to remain expired on October 31st 2010, but i still held a right to remain here until the application in 2010 was either granted or refused.
2.The rejection has nothing to do with the new application submitted on the 7th of july 2012, the recent one is an FLR(M) application. its called cohabitation and the one in 2010 was Tier 4 student application
The one in February is actually same application submitted in October i only sent it back to them, please refer to the second paragraph in my initial question
I sent back the same one nothing added and nothing removed
It will be 3 years in December since we have been cohabiting, all the documents we sent to the home office has proofs that we have lived together over two and a half years. 1.Electric bills, 2.Payslips from both of us 3.Gas Bills 4.Individual bank statements, 5.Joint account statements, 6.B.T bills. Electric and gas bills in both our names including the joint acct.
We have been together for 5 years now, we have a 20 months old daughter.
We are looking to get married as soon as this immigration issue is sorted
My partner is white British.
Well one of the reasons i submitted the FLR(M) application which they received on the 7th of July was to beat the deadline for the salary threshold law which says the sponsor must be earning minimum of £18,600.
This law took effect from the 9th of July so its not applicable to me.
You have been of great help and i want to say am very satisfied with the way you dealt with this issue.
So do you still think i need the services of a solicitor, i don't want to have to go back to my home country to come back in again.
sorry i am being a pain in the back side.
Should i wait for the outcome before i engage the services of a legal representative or i need to get one ASAP?
