Yes. I'll be married. We've been married for 11 years. My wife was born in the UK and is a British citizen.
Thanks very much for the prompt response.
I also forgot to mention that I'm a Canadian Citizen.
I just wanted some more clarification on applying for ILR. My understanding is that Settlement is the same as ILR? I'm currently already on a Spousal Settlement Visa ( I believe the exact phrase written on my passport is "SETTLEMENT SPOUSE/CP(KOL REQ)"
So will I still need to apply for Settlement/ILR again?
Also, is the Life in the UK test required before I apply for ILR?
Sorry for the barrage of questions. I'm just trying to understand the difference between the Settlement Visa I currently have and what I'll be applying for again.
