Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question.
I can confirm that your answer will be yes as this is the first time you are submitting an in country application to extend your visa in the UK, it would be the first time you are applying under the partner route and an extension with your current spouse.
I hope this answers your question, if so please provide a rating and feedback.
Thank you for you reply.
Yes I would recommend to submit the supporting documents you mentioned to show the Home Office that your relationship is still subsisting. You should send photographs since her arrival to the UK, letters in her name she has received since being in the UK, her driving licence, letters from friends. Please ensure evidence you submit is since her arrival to the UK not the same evidence you submitted when she submitted her application from her home country.
In respect of your last question I would recommend sending the application no more than 28 days prior to the expiry of her spouse visa. If the application goes over then her visa will automatically be extended until a decision is made. The fact that the home office take longer to decide your application will not have any affect on her legal status in the UK.
Its a pleasure.
Hi Thank you for your reply.
1. Regarding the application it seems you may have clicked to ticked something incorrect as they should not be asking both of you regarding non applying partners.
2. I would state NO as both are adults and are not children.
