A Y & J Helps Client Gain ILR After Five Years' Continuous Stay On Tier 2 (General) Visa

A Y & J Helps Client Gain ILR After Five Years’ Continuous Stay On Tier 2 (General) Visa


Our client, Mr K, first entered the UK as a Tier 4 (General) Student migrant 9 years ago.  He extended his leave as a Tier 4 (General) student migrant a few times until he completed his study in the UK.  After graduating, Mr K found a job in the UK, and his employer agreed to sponsor him to stay in the UK as a Tier 2 (General) migrant.  After completing the 5-year period in the UK as a Tier 2 (General) migrant, Mr K contacted us for our advice in his settlement application.

What did AY & J do in helping the client to gain ILR

Dealing with ILR eligibility problems

During the initial consultation, we assessed Mr K’s immigration history and background.  We confirmed that Mr K was receiving the appropriate rate for his job as stated in the Codes of Practice in Appendix J of the Immigration Rules.  However, his salary did meet the minimum earnings threshold (£35,800 since 6 April 2019) –  on the basis of working 37 hours per week.  We suggested he should ask his employer to adjust his weekly working hours.  Once done, we helped his employer report the changes to the Home Office.

Compiling the necessary supporting documents

We were advised that our client had been working for his employer since he graduated, but a few years ago, the employer changed their name, and Mr K’s employment has been transferred to the ‘new company’ under TUPE.  Mr K was worried that it would make the situation complicated.  We assured him that this was not unusual, and we helped him to obtain a letter from his employer explaining the issue.

As Mr K was making a combined application with his wife who had been in the UK for 5 years as the partner of Tier 2 (General) migrant, we prepared a detailed checklist for him outlining all the documents he needed for their combined application.  We helped them to collect the evidence of their genuine and subsisting relationship.

Registering for the super-priority service

We helped Mr K and his wife to book their appointments for super-priority service and uploaded all documents in advance.  With our help, they submitted the application with ease.

Result: Our Client And His Wife Received ILR Immediately

Mr K’s application was approved on the same day without further enquiries from the Home office, and their new BRP cards arrived only a few working days later.

A Y & J Solicitors’ Review

S Patel gave A Y & J Solicitors 5 stars via @Trustpilot

Tier – 2 General Application : AY&J is the BEST immigration solicitor firm in the UK. My tier -2 general case was so complex , my first tier-2 was expired in May-17 , AR was refused and do so last 6 month me – my wife both lost work right , we kept FLR(FP) file on my son while we were looking for sponsor regardless of knowing there are less hope to get tier-2 approval. We were going through so much stress and hard time. By grace of God we got sponsorship (COS) from one company ( before FLR decision come) and same time we came to know about AY&J from our friend and gave our case to them with high hope of miracle. We applied in same day premium service and our file gone on held as expected. But unexpectedly miracle happen and we got our tier-2 visa approval in 10 days. Me and my family highly thankful of Yash sir and specially Dianamam (my case worker) who use their expertise and handle my case very carefully by going in detail which resulted in Visa approval in unexpected short time. Thanks a lot to Dianamam , Yash sir and entire AY&J team. I highly recommend AY&J to those all , specially who got complex in their immigration matter. AY&J is the Best.!!!! Regards
