1. Dear Adeel, can you please provide more information about the situation concerning your spouse. Has your spouse had a visa which has allowed her to live and work in the UK since 2009? If so, can you please outline, the time and dates when she had a visa and which visa she had? Can you also tell me what basis did you get ILR - was it on a 5 year or ten year residency in the UK?

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!
