I have been in the country since 2007 on working holiday visa.
2009 changed to spouse visa
2011 following marriage breakdown changed to FLR O parent with access right to UK child but was granted DLTR 3 months in 2 occasions in order to obtain Contact order
2012 obtained contact order and applied for FLR O but was granted DLTRPT for 30 months under 10 year rule instead of 5 year rule since the rule changed before I applied.
Now I have been granted DLTRPT for 30 months under 5 year rule and was told that I will have to spend another 30 months as the previous 30 months was on 10 year rule.
Home office then said I can complain if I believe the made an error in my 2012 application. they said the error could be that I did not provide english test and financial evidence but later the said the saw the english test but did not see my bank statement.
My question is should I go ahead with the complain so that the my previous 30 months counts towards 5 year rule instead of doing another 30 months after the current one and how should I make the complain?
Please just to add that the rule that changed in 2012 was the 1 year rule for parents exercising access right to UK child. That was the rule I applied on 2010 and 2012 but delay in court order resulted in my application being lumped together with the new rules of 10 years in 2012 and now 5 years rule in 2015.
I really feel that the way the handled my application was unsatisfactory.
when am I going to get an answer
