Default Set M question

Hi,

We will be applying for set M in Feb and would appreciate some help on the following questions. Thanks.

1. Under Current PArtner question... it asks what is your partners basis for living in the U.K.? my husband is a British citizen has a British passport, but not by birth, so when I click on British citizen , it then asks by birth or date citizenship obtained? Problem is he has misplaced his citizenship certificate, we know the year but not the month, it was 20 years ago!

So can I click settlement and put date he obtained settlement? We have that letter.

I remember on the previous FLR m visa it just said r partner is not British by birth then put date he obtained settlement, so that's what we did.

Any help would be welcome!

Thank you for the responses.

It's quite frustrating because there is no space where you can put a note to say you can't remember actual date, , so what we have decided to do is just quote as menahill suggested the settlement date, hopefully nothing will go wrong.

Someone from work mentioned that if we pay 250 we may get a duplicate citizenship certificate but that takes 30 days and Our expiry is on end of Feb...

I think we will just leave the settlement date that was used in FLRM. If they have any questions on it then they should contact us. The other thing is in tis individuals case i would put in a supporting letter to explain the situation that it was over 20yrs ago and you do not have the certificate and that way if they still require it they can request for you to get it but surely they would have access to check if needed.

Hi,

The thing that frustrated me was unless you put a specific date it would not allow you to continue, so yes we probably will put the settlement date, and add a note when we upload our other files.

As you said, he has his BRitish passport so if they really were unsure they should be able to check on their systems..

We will be so relieved when all this is finished. Thanks again for your responses.

Could someone also just confirm one another thing... is the cash savings route still 67500 ?
