Yes she entered prior to 5th April 2012. The English language requirement prevents her from applying for indefinite leave to remain unfortunately. She is currently entitled to a 12 month extension isn't she ? That is what has happened the last 2 years she has been with us. Granting the 12 month extension should just be a formailty should it not, so I really don't know what is going on.
Thank you very much, that is really helpful. So we will wait to see what happens.
Can just ask also, does the £35,000 salary threshold I've been reading about coming in next year affect further renewals for her after this one ?
