Customer Question

Hi I was wondering if you was able to help me regarding pre settled status in the UK. Myself and family applied and received pre settled status last year as we had been in the UK for 4 years. All of us was approved
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the UK government? What country do you live in? What is your citizenship?
Customer: Since May 2021 we have been living here for 5 years. Now do we still have to apply for permanent residency before the 30june cut off date or because we have pre settled since last year can we apply for permanent residency anytime after 30june ?
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer about this?
Customer: No
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Thank you

Under your circumstances you would have been eligible to apply for settled status from 24th May even if you already have pre settled status.

I understand this, but can we apply for settled status after the 30 June instead of before?

You will still be able to apply for settlement after 30 June as you have the pre settled status.
