Basically I was just wondering do we fall under the old rules or the new rules of the hmforces?
From page 1 of that document:

Implementation

The changes set out in this statement take effect on 1 December 2013.
The changes set out in paragraphs 1-9, 15-16, 22-26, 28-31 and 33-50 shall apply to all applications decided on or after 1 December 2013. Otherwise, if an application is made before 1 December 2013 and the application has not been decided before that date, it will be decided in accordance with the rules in force on 30 November 2013.
October 31, 2013 was before November 30, 2013 so your application will be adjudicated under the rules that were in effect on 30 November 2013.

Good luck to you. :)

It's very kind of the UKBA to put that clause in and even more helpful if you have all of your homework done and can get your paperwork in before changes take place... I was able to slip my Fiancée visa in just before last year's major rules overhaul and avoided having to show proof of £18.6k income and waiting 5 years for indefinite leave/citizenship.
