Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Good evening, I am Lawyer Ak and I will be assisting you today.
When did you make application for asylum?
If your application has been more than a year and you still have not received a decision on your asylum then you can proceed to make an application for right to work.
You can write for example
I made an application for asylum on (date). It has now been a year since I made the application and I have not received a decision. This is causing uncertainty in my life and I am unable to work and live a normal life. I kindly request for permission to be granted so I am able to work.
The date considered would be the 02 September the date you initially claimed asylum.
You can also mention about your degree and eligibility for shortage occupation jobs.
The home office hopefully should respond within 3 weeks.
They will give your wife as a dependent work right as it has been a year since you have not heard anything regarding your application.
You should hopefully get a response within 3 weeks.
