Default Form IMM 5669 - a question

I am in the process of completing the above form for family sponsorship but I am a bit confused at question 8 where it asks for " personal history since the age of 18, or the past 10 years, whichever comes first".

I am 61 so do they want to know what I have been doing for just the last 10 years or everything from when I was 18?

Thank you for any help in this matter

Safe to say they are looking for the past 10 years only.

Are you sure? When I was filling out this form I did re-read this question a few times... my fiance (who I am sponsoring) is 30 so adding the extra 2 years for us didn't make a huge difference, but in reading that question over and over, it does sound like you are meant to take the earlier of the two events. However in the OP's case, posting everything from age 18 until 61 seems completely ridiculous... the logical person in me would have thought that 10 years would have been plenty, but the way it's worded implies otherwise.... it's very confusing.

The Govt doesnt do logical
My interpretation and logic using the OP as an example is
from 18 to 61 is 43 years
from 51 to 61 is 10 years
The 10 years appears to come first in this case

Maybe there are posters who have a legal background and are more well versed in this type of language that could shed more light onto this.

I guess it depends on which "direction" you're going in.

If you were 18 on, say, January 1st 1960, and your "10 years ago" was on December 2nd 2001, then you'd say that January 1st 1960 "came first".

However, if you're looking backwards, December 2nd 2001 comes before January 1st 1960, so you'd say that December 2nd 2001 "came first".

In summary, I have no idea.

Thank you for your replies but I am still no wiser either so I will play it safe and give all my history from 18. Luckily I was in one job for 29 years so that will help a bit. The spaces to write things on this form are extremely small so I will be using an overflow sheet for some questions.

It's a badly worded question.

It should maybe say "most recent" or similar, rather than "what comes first". That makes no sense at all, lol.

Who do you think worded the question in the 1st place?
Read any piece of legislation, do you really understand it?
Written by lawyers for lawyers.
Sorry not dissing lawyers I think they do a fine job.

I would personally read it to mean since the age of 18, when we applied for PR we gave our personal histories since the age of 18, despite that being far more than 10 years unfortunately! But it is very badly written and hard to tell.

We need an expert to figure it out. *paging Jim Humphries, Paul Wildy or PMM, would Jim Humphries, Paul Wildy or PMM come to the forum please*.
