Hi All
I searched online and read forms but couldn't find answers.

About me
I got married in June 2013, my wife is british and unemployed.
I am working full time with current employer for 5 months now. Salary £30K
Last year I was working as self employed, earnings £26K

When to apply
I have to apply by 20 January 2014 as my current visa ( Tier 2, PSW) expire by 20th July 2014, need to apply 6 months before.

Bad luck: on 20th Jan, there would only 10 days to complete 6 months with the current employer and apply under category A.

Questions
I am going to apply under category B, Is it correct?
What documents do I need to send for the previous year 2012/13 when I was self employed? I filed my tax return online and I don't have any documents just HMRC letters asking for money etc.
Do I need to send full year's bank statements for the year 2012/13?
I know I need to send my payslips but do I need to send my personal bank statement where the pay is going? If yes, how many months?

Overall I am not sure what documents I need to send with my form.

Should I involve solicitor? Do you recommend any in South West London?


Many Thanks,
Aamir

Why do you need to apply by 20th January? Your visa is valid till July. And what is it about having to apply 6 months in advance? There is no such rule.
So wait till you are in the current job for 6 months and apply under Cat A.

Thanks for your reply.
Is it not a rule that you need at least 6 months valid visa if you apply from within the UK otherwise you would have to go backhome and apply from there?
