Me and my eight-years old ILR application SET (M) has been refused. I submitted ESOL A1 for my KoLL (B1) was required. I fall under 2 years stay period. But the refusal letter says I don't meet the requirement. The letter also doubts my relationship with my wife and future commitments. Worst of all the letter goes to suggest that we return to our country of origin. We are currently on a settlement visa through spouse. Is there any way I can get an ILR based on our last application? Provided I submit my B1 certificate after taking a test. I don't have right to appeal.
The refusal letter is dated 29th December 2014. Please don't get me wrong but will I end up paying you more money? £38 is paid already. Cheers
Well I still have settlement visa valid till Nov. 14 2015. That was the reason I was not given right to appeal. Me my wife and my 8-year old son have been living together in the same address since our arrival to the UK from 1st August 2012. Marriage certificate and letters posted our address were submitted. The home office kindly, should have asked to provide the B1 certificate in place of my A1 certificate. The implication of not submitting one document, I feel, was too harsh. I fulfill the 2 year stay period as my first settlement visa was granted in August 2011. Me and my wife who is a British citizen are employed full time, sharing equally for upbringing our son. I don't have right to appeal as I mentioned earlier, the reasons they have stated for refusing me ILR are baseless except for the part where I did not provide a B1 English language certificate. So whom shall I tell that what they have mentioned in the letter are false and why do they have to make suggestion that we go back to our country of origin, we are not seeking for any benefits from the public fund. My son is doing well at school here, the letter even suggests he go back to our country of origin. I feel that's hitting below the belt. I ended up loosing £2180 for the application fee, that amount seems insignificant after being humilated that way after being granted a SETTLEMENT VISA. Thanks for your time and insight.
Many thanks for your reply. I guess I will do as you have suggested. So when I reapply I will have to pay £2180 again or will I get exempted?
Many thanks again.
