OTS Case Study: Indefinite Leave to Remain – Citizen of India
Client A, a national of India had leave to remain as a Tier 2 (General) worker, but had reached ten lawful years of residence in the UK through various visa routes they had been granted whilst in the UK. A also had a dependant wife in the UK. A instructed the head of our Immigration department, Teni Shahiean to assist and prepare the client's Indefinite Leave to Remain application in the UK based on his long residence. This was granted to him within a very short time. Miss Shahiean then advised the client on an application under Appendix FM for his wife to gain leave to remain which would lead to her own Indefinite Leave to Remain in the shortest time. The client and his wife were pleased with the advice and instructed our team to then apply, this time the spouse of a settled person for his wife. With our assistance the client collated all the evidence under Appendix FM and we provided advice on including evidence to meet the financial, English language and accommodation requirements and B was successfully granted her leave to remain as a spouse for 30 months. After 30 month our client will be eligible for Indefinite Leave to Remain.
