Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Thanks for your reply, Just to clarify. My wife qualifies for ILR after 2 years because her visa was applied for before 9th July 2012. By getting an FLR now does this affect the 2 year period?
I'm seeking confirmation that she will be able to apply for ILR at any time once she has been granted further leave i.e. straight away (assuming she has the relevant qualifications).
