I got married with a english guy last year and we are living together now,i'm software engineering and i'm doing programming.
last April i went out for shopping and i bought lots of stuffs then i went to the primark shop and i choose 3 items and i paid on the till when i wanted to pass the door security stopped me and took me to the office and they searched me and they told me you took an earring and didnt pay it, on that moment i found out i choose an earring and i put in my basket but at the end of the day i forgot to pay that item which was 3£ .
I tried to explain for them i dont need to steal this earring and i just forgot to pay but they didnt lesson to me at all,
There was no police involved ...and i just wrote my name, address and phone number for the store manager...... and i didnt fill any form relating to immigration.
I have received a letter from RLP(civil recovery specialists since) they charged me for £80 and straightway i paid it ,because i wasn't looking for a trouble.
now i want to apply for my indefinite leave to remain in the uk but at i dont know how to answer in these 2 questions in the indefinite leave to remain in the uk :
9.1. have you or any dependants who are applying with you been convicted of any criminal offence in the UK or any other country?

No - go to question 9.3
9.3. do you or any dependants who are applying with you have any civil judgments against you or any civil penalty under the UK Immigration Acts?Yes go to 9.4No go to 9.5
thank you very much
