Hi, the Refusal letter states:
We have considered your application on behalf of the Secretary of state, and your application has been refused
You arrived in UK on dd mm 2008 with entry clearance under HSMP valid until dd mm 2010. Before expiry of your leave to enter, you applied for further leave to remain as Tier 1 HS general migrant and on dd mm 2010 you were granted leave to remain as Tier 1 HS general migrate until dd mm 2013. On dd mm 2013, your spouse, xxxx applied for settlement in UK as a Tier 1 HS general migrant and included you as a dependant on his application
Paragraph 219E of the Immigration Rules states:
(c) The applicant must have, or have last been granted, leave as the partner of the Relevant Points Based Migrant who:
(i) has indefinite leave to remain as a Relevant Points Based System Migrant; or
(ii) is, at the same time being granted indefinite leave to remain as a Relevant Points Based System Migrant, or
(iii) has become a British Citizen when prior to that they held indefinite leave to remain as a Relevant Points Based System Migrant.
With reference o Paragraph 319E(c0 above, you were last granted leave to remain as a Tier 1 highly skilled general migrant. You have never been granted leave to remain as the partner of xxx, the Relevant Points Based System Migrant in this case.
In view of the above, it is considered that you have failed to demonstrate that you meet the requirements of Paragraph 319E of the Immigration riles. Your application for settlement in UK as a dependant spouse of XXXX, a points based system migrant is refused under paragraph 319E of the Immigration riles with reference to Paragraph 319E(c) of the Immigration rules.
On 09 July 2012, the Immigration Rules were amended to unify consideration of Articled 8 of the European Convention Human Rights under Immigration Rules. If you wish the UKBA to consider an application on this basis you must make a separate charged application using the appropriate specified firm and pay the appropriate fee
Careful consideration has been given to all the circumstances of your situation but there is no evidence that there are grounds for exercising discretion in your case.
