Hi UKVisas, Thanks for your detailed response. I have a few follow-up questions to provide me with further clarity -
1-A (Follow-Up) - Assume my current COS is terminated on 10-Oct-2013. My new COS with start date as 01-Nov-2013, is issued on 14-Sep-2013. Given the grace period of 28 days between Old Cos Expiry to New COS Start date, in this scenario am I right in saying that this is not considered a break in the continuous residence period towards ILR?
3-B (Follow-Up) -"Your family will be able to apply at the same time as you if they came here prior to 9 July 2012 and have been here at least 2 years at the time of application."My 5 year continuous stay requirement for ILR will be met in August-2014, when I will be eligible to apply for ILR. My wife came to the UK the first time in Nov-2009. After the birth of my son, due to medical reasons, my wife and son were in India for the period April-2012 to Dec-2012 (Continuous period of 8 months). Apart from this break, there has not been any other significant stay outside UK. Given this when is my wife eligible for ILR, assuming my ILR gets successfully approved when I apply for the same in the month of August-2014? Also does this hold true for my son as well, who was born in Dec-2011 in UK?
