    Talking Newbie

    Hello all. How are you? I loved that long hot summer

    Typical August Bank holiday weather now, though!

    My name is Jonny James but it is ok to just call me JJ if you are in a hurry.
    I live in Central London

    I joined here before but the email account that I set up would not work very well, in fact it would not work at all.

    So I have changed it to outlook, which seems to be much more reliable than mail.com

    Hope to catch up with you all soon
    JJ

    Everybody must be away?
    This looks like a very interesting site for information and help

    I just want to present the facts here below

    We've been married almost 6 years now and my wife has lived here in the UK for just over 5 years

    My wife has not had a day's work since she has been here

    I would like to know if this would prevent her from obtaining her Indefinite Leave to Remain status which is due for her to apply for it in October of this year 2018?

    Looking around this site I've not seen any other post on this subject?

    I would be grateful for any help and advice on this matter

    Thanking you in advance

    JJ

    I'm sure someone will come along to help soon, sorry but I don't know the answer.

    One assumes she is not claiming any benefit, and is solely dependent upon your income?

    Her lack of work will not be against in gaining a successful ILR. What would matter is you, the sponsor, can show that you are capable of supporting her, i.e. you are able to show your yearly earnings of 18,600 or having the required savings if you don't meet the financial requirements.

    Have a read on this.

    Hello dear Rayna
    thank you
    To be frank with you
    The time has now come for me to explain with more details about our situation
    I am not earning this amount of money anymore , in fact I'm on pension and DLA due to an old accident at work and this is all the income I have
    Will I be exempt from paying anything at all?
    Regards
    JJ

    Why wasn't my post displayed on here?
    Also, why wasn't I given an answer?

    Hi all

    I will be grateful for some help and advice on this matter here below

    Does anyone on here know what could happen if my wife missed the deadline to complete her application form for ILR?

    All replies appreciated

    You mean when her current visa runs out and she hasn't applied for ILR? She won't have the right to stay here in the UK and she would need to go back to the Philippines and start the process all over again.

    Dear Rayna,

    Thank you. Can they make her go if we don't want to have to start these visa applications all over again?

    What do you mean? Would immigration officers or Home Office make her go back to the Philippines if she doesn't have ILR and rather have an expired visa? Yes they can if they catch her. But that would be living a life always worrying whether she would be caught or not. She also won't be entitled to any benefits since her current visa doesn't have recourse to public funds.

    Also if she intends to work in the future, she won't be able to since she has an expired visa and doesn't have a right to stay and work here. She might also be reported to Home Office by possible employers if that happens. Hence, they can deport her.

    Don't risk anything that would jeopardise both your lives here in the UK. If she gets caught with expired visa, she will be deported and will have a 10 year ban of getting back here.

    Dear Rayna,

    Thank you. That's what I thought would happen in everything you say is correct. All I need is for my wife to be suitably impressed with your points of views too

    If my wife passes the day of her application for her ILR, how long do they generally take before the Home Office will give her notice to quit the UK? If my wife is still here after these notices from the Home Office?

    What could happen next?

    Regards
    JJ

    To be honest, I don't really know. I haven't heard anyone here in the forum letting their visa run out and not getting an ILR as their own choice.

    Dear Rayna,

    Thank you. This may sound a strange question to ask:

    Do you think the Home Office might hold me responsible for my wife's failure to complete her ILR form?
    I'm getting a little anxious here

    Thank you
    JJ

    Errr...I don't think they will be too concerned about your responsibility for your wife's failure to apply or refusing to apply for ILR. Unless you can't show you can support her as a sponsor, then that'll be your only problem. All the Home Office needs from you are the documents you can support her financially and you have proper accommodations for the both of you. Although the financial requirement is really the toughest and yet the most important requirement.

    You better get some help with an immigration solicitor with regards to all your legal questions. We can only supply you information based on experiences of the members here and our own understanding of the rules. To be honest, no members here in the forum, as far as I know, have refused to get their wives (or their own) ILR. I don't understand why your wife wouldn't want to get an ILR???

    Perhaps she (or he) has run off with somebody else, and this questioning is all a smokescreen ?

    JJ,

    Why not cut all the drip feeding of information, and just tell us the whole story?


    It could save a whole lot of time and get you the correct advice or answer.

    I want to thank you for you kindness in helping us
    I know it might sound a bit messy with all these questions
    We are hoping her new passport comes back soon before we can make any progress towards her ILR application

    She must apply for her ILE status very soon
    Otherwise we could be in trouble
    This week is 10 weeks ago we sent it off
    Regards
