Hi I hope you’re well. I would like ask few questions regarding my ILR application. I am due to apply the ILR this coming May 2018 as I have complited my 5 years stay here in UK as a radiographer, I have 3 dependents with me my husband and my 2 children. My Tier 2 visa was granted in March 2013 same as my dependents. However, my husband and children didn’t come in uk the same year as I. My husband came to uk after a year (April 2014) and my children came after 2 years (May 2015). There’s no problem for my children as they are still minors age 10 and 6. I can apply their ILR with my application. But my question is this, can I also include my husband in my application?
I’ve read on the uk website that if your visa was granted after 9 July 2012 your partner must been living in uk for 5 years. His dependent visa will expires in March 2019 and his 5th year here in uk is in April 2019 So, his dependent visa will be expired before he can apply for his ILR. What should I do with his case? Shall I wait for my ILR application to be granted and apply him again a dependent visa or is there a way that he can apply for his ILR together with my application even though it is only 4 years stay here? His working here in uk as a radiographer in NHS this also included in the shortage occupation list. I hope that there’s a way that they can consider his situation? Thank you in advance!
