Hi everyone!

Quick question -- I am living in Edinburgh (from Canada) on a Tier 5 working visa which ends September 10th 2012. My fiance (who is a British citizen from Edinburgh) and I started dating 3 years ago and have been living together the entire duration of my stay here in the UK. We have plans to marry next summer 2013, but we are looking into options into how I can reside and work over here until that date. I have done a lot of research into the Unmarried Partner Visa and there's only one portion of the requirements I am unsure of. It says you need to be living together for 2 years and come September 10th, it will be exactly 2 years (we came back and forth 2 weeks together, 4 weeks apart between Canada and the UK for the year before I moved), but the issue will then be that my current visa will be expired.

I guess my question is, will 23 months (with the only exception being my current visa) be adequate enough for them to grant me this visa? My Fiance and I have our own place, I have a job over here, have been contributing to the economy since day 1, I even volunteer haha! 24 months is the length they require, but my visa is only 24 months, so we've only been allowed to live together for that long so far.

Thanks so much guys. Hopefully this post isn't too convoluted -- this is the first post on any website ever for me!


Regards,

Shaun
