thanks for the reply which was really a relief.
yes she is in line my application date that i will be filling for ILR.
both our visa's expire on Feb 1st.
so submission of my payslips and bank statements are enough? or do i need to show anything more for both of us in terms of meeting the financial requirement.
confusion came to me because one of my friend who is same situation of mine is filling for his ILR and his wives visa extension in the coming week and the lawyers of his company gave him the following details for his wives application which i don't agree is correct as she is no longer Tier 1 year dependant applicant

i am getting confused here.
my wife will be applying for extending her visa which is currently Tier 1 general dependant.. i am on tier 1 general - both our visa's expire on the same date and i am filling for my ILR eligibility and she needs to extend her stay in UK as she is not eligible for ILR at this point. She came to UK as my dependant this year.
At the time of application - i agree that she is still a dependant of a person limited to stay in UK - so should the application not be to extend her Tier 1 dependant visa - which means that i will have to show balance for 3 months which is close to 600£ as suggested by my friends lawyer? or do i go with form FLR (M) which means my overall salary cap satisfies the criteria.
Currently i have booked appointment for same day service of extending both our visas.
do you think it is ideal to get my ILR done a day prior as i have a same day appointment booked and next week apply for my wife's visa?
That is wrong - she cannot apply for a Spouse visa as her previous stay was as a PBS Dependant - she must extend as a PBS Dependant.
