I was issued my spouse visa on the 08th of January 2015 . however, I started living in Uk with my spouse from October 2015 and have remained in UK since then. My visa is due for renewal in October 2017. When exactly should I apply for renewal? UK website says not earlier than 28 days before expiry, however, I see that some people on this forum have said upon completion of 30 months here, however my visa expires before my 30-month completion here.

Please help !

Read the very first sticky at the beginning of this forum

The one that reads "When can I apply to renew my visa"

What's the date stamped on your visa (which should reflect the date you entered the UK)?

It will be problematic if you waited nine months to enter the UK after your spouse visa was issued, because you will not have been resident here long enough to qualify for the second period of leave to remain. You would need to extend your current leave before becoming eligible for an extension.
