Hi, my husband a couple of ccj's 2 years ago but subsequently went into an IVA with the companies. He needs to fill an ILR form. Does he answer yes or no to 'do you currently have a civil judgement'?


Hello Sly,


Are you referring to the UKBA form to apply for indefinite leave to remain.


Customer: replied 6 years ago.



Yes, he should disclose them. They are nevertheless judegement irrespective of the IVA. If he does not provide details of them in the form the the UKBA may take the view that not disclosing them is a form of deception. Deception could prejudice his application and it is not worth the risk.

If he is concerned about them he should include in his cover letter and mitigating circumstances surrounding them and also measures that he took following judgement to resolve the situation to his creditors satisfaction.

Kind regards,
