Transition of DLR to ILR

  • My husband received his initial DLR in August 2011. He applied for FLR back in August 2016 and received the decision in August 2017. He was granted 4 more years of DLR. However, I think that since he was granted DLR before 9 July 2012 he should now qualify for ILR based on continuous 6 years of DLR, given that he's been lawfully residing, working and paying taxes and he has no criminal record. Am I correct to think so?

    Thanks in advance
