Default ILR dates between visa waiting gaps/180 days travel limit

Hello,

I've read the dates threads and wanted to make sure with the dates I figured out to plan it better.

My first day with FLR(M) starts 22/08/17 til 23/02/20 and then I got extended from 10/03/20 to 07/10/22. 5 years anniversary from the first day will be 20/08/22. It is roughly a month and a half difference from expired date.

1. My question is can I apply around 23/07/22 with non-priority service? Or do I have to wait until early Sep for the expiry date? Just want to know if the gap between the extension affects the ILR apply date.




Also I've read the threads and the gov document that is saying 180 days travel limit in a consecutive year is only for certain categories but not FLR(M). But then again I saw another post that this could be a problem even for FLR(M).

I am planning to visit my home country to see my family since my grandparents are ill and spend a few months, however my partner won't visit since it is not advised to travel there for non citizenship holders unless they ease it in coming months. Not planning to visit 180 days but with current situation (flight cancellation) it could happen.

2. There will be no 'proof' that my grandparents are ill. I may stay 2-3 months, without my partner (unless can visit for a few weeks later the year), do I have to explain this in the cover letter just with my words? Or what do people submit to prove this? And if it goes over 180 days unintentionally, would it be a problem even with the cancelled flight proof?

3. Or in general, if I fortunately comeback in time after 90 days, go extra holidays in a consecutive year (ex. Aug 20-Jul 21) with/without my partner total over 180 days, would this be a problem for flrM?

Thank you in advance.

1. You can apply for ILR 28 day before you 60 month anniversary so if your initial entry to the uk was 22/08/17 then 28 day before then, the last date you can apply for ILR is the last date on your BRP
2. I donít believe the 180 applies to spouse visa and instances where it does it is 180 days within a 12month period

So technically it should not have an impact on your ILR application but maybe on your citizenship application I think it 270 day over last 3 years period
