Default ILR Questions

Hi All,

Been reading through all the posts about ILR and finding such useful info...thanks for sharing.

I'm currently 7 months pregnant and wondering if I have to answer 'yes' when they ask 'Do you and your partner have any children together?'

Also, when asked 'For example, evidence of an active relationship with a child or parent or medical evidence such as evidence of serious ill health.' under the Documents section, I've said...

I am currently 7 months pregnant with our first children, identical twin girls, and will be taking maternity leave commencing in November 2019, when my current visa is due to expire. Obtaining my indefinite leave to remain will allow to take advantage of this employee benefit and bond with my children.

Lastly, I want to complete my application before the end of the September as my current visa expires in November 2019. Will waiting for a response from the Home Office affect going on maternity leave? I'm really scared it will, but don't want to pay 800 for priority when I could use that towards getting my family ready for our babies.

Any tips and advice are appreciated.

Congrats on your pregnancy!

Not unless you have any other kids - being pregnant isn't in itself a reason to answer 'yes'.

Is that something to do with "Other reasons for wanting to stay in the UK"?

FWIW we are also 7 months pregnant, and didn't mention anything about it at all in our recent ILR. I've read that the "Other reasons" is only really relevant to what they do when they refuse you - e.g. whether they put you on the 10-year route.

I'm not totally sure about this - You'd hope not, given that you are allowed to stay working (if not pregnant!), but hopefully someone else can advise.
