I am tier1 general visa which is due to expire on March 2016

Customer Question

I am on tier1 general visa which is due to expire on March 2016 and i will become eligible for ILR. However, in septemeber 2014 i was charged with drunk in charge of vehichle and trial is due this year march. According to my lawyer, i will be mostly out of case however, in the worst case, i want to know what would be the options for me to apply for ILR or extend my visa ( may be temporary visa ) since we cant extend tier 1 general for more than 5 years , need to spend 24 months before ILR and also we can apply for ILR with tier 1 general after 2018.

Hi, thank you for your question, I will be happy to help you today.
Could you confirm what the likely outcome will be? Is it possible you will get a caution or even a conviction?

Most likely i will be out of the case as it was a misunderstanding by police.

If worst case, i might get some points on my license or fine.

I have been in UK since jan 2008.
