hi i got ilr on last october at that time my wife was still in tier 2 dependant but as she couldnt complete 2 years at that time they asked to appply once her teir 2 gets expired now she is eligible in sep , but which form should i use for this now
If you are saying that she still has not completed the required 2-year period but her visa is about to expire then she should extend as a PBS Dependant.

If you are saying that she is about to complete her 2-year period and wants to apply for ILR then this can be done using form SET(O).

Hi thanks she will complete two years in sep so as i am on ilr can we use setm form

You should use SET(O) as she will not be applying for ILR on the basis of marriage - she will be applying on the basis of dependancy. It would probably also be accepted if you used SET(M) but I successfully submit applications on this basis using form SET(O) - again, the application type chosen should be based on the qualification and qualification was not on the basis of a marriage visa but was instead on the basis of dependancy, hence further leave to remain being as a PBS Dependant and not as a Spouse.

thanks now i was on tier 2 ict earlier before converting to ilr now when i apply using set o form which category should i select is it others?

The form has an option for PBS Dependants.

hi actualy my question was which category should my wife select as one of the post said to select as others when applying for a spouse to ilr on set o form is that corrrect, i will tell my situation as of now


i was on tier 2 ict last year got a ILR on oct 2012. my wife came to uk on tier 2 ict dependant on oct 2011, so now on oct 2013 she is eligible for pr. now we are using set o form, but when selecting the cateogy which one should i take

The answer is still PBS Dependant.

Her status is PBS Dependant and her application is based on being a PBS Dependant for the required period. She should therefore select PBS Dependant as that is the basis on which she qualifies and it is her current status.
