Default Query on online application??

Looking for help, please. Completed the online settlement application and now have to post it off. On the first page of the application there is an outline for the photo. What I'm wondering, am I supposed to paste the photo on or will it be done at the biometric appointment. Thanks in advance.

Yes this is true. Recent photo is needed (of course).

Err, do you know what you are doing, or are you deliberately posting nonsense? All your posts so far seem to be a sentence plucked from someone else's post.

If you aren't sure how to reply to a post, maybe contact one of the moderators for help.

Don't want to go off-topic, but what is the purpose of stealth-spamming? Just to annoy people? Seems a bit pointless.

Sunandmoon:

You have to support your husband ie be the sponsor but at the moment you can have support from someone else - third party support you may find the following link of help:
http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/po...dance/ecg/maa/

Not sure how old you are ie if over 60 if not you can ask for your application to be considered for the endorsement Spouse KOL Req as you have been married for more than 4 years

Hi sunandmoon and welcome to BE

I am in exactly the same position as you (I'm the British citizen, DH recently applied for a settlement visa) and was so thankful when I found this forum! Everyone has been very helpful, despite the fact they have probably answered the same questions many times over

I'm not clear on something from your post; are you sponsoring your husband, or is your friend who is providing your accommodation sponsoring him? I don't know this for sure, but would think it would be much easier if the sponsor were you...based on the circumstances you described, you can apply under the '4+ years outside the UK'. Take a look here, specifically paragraph 281(b)

http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/po...ivil_partners/

However, the UK government is planning on scrapping this in an immigration clampdown So if if this rule applies in your case, I would suggest you apply asap!

I found this thread particulary helpful and suggest you take a look

Good luck!

Thank you pennylessinindia.yes found out we can have 3rd party support and he has written a letter stating all the above and including documents etc. so are you saying that will be sufficient as he is seen as 3rd party and will not need to send in the SU0701 (sponsorship undertaking form)?
and that it will be myself that will have to print of the SUO701 document as i will be seen as husbands sponsor? if it isjust me i will do it as soon as possible thankyou for your quick reply to the above..been on laptop about 6 hours already today trying to fill in any blanks thankyou.

Thankyou red sea angel..well im not too sure either re who is the sponsor !! as all the uk border agency application forms etc say I am his sponsor as his wife and uk citizen etc even though i have lived here 5 years. the reason my closest friend in uk wrote the letter offering accomodation help etc is that i do not nor have ever owned a home in u.k used to rent before i came here to live we are free to live at my friends house as long as we want or need to...until hopefully we will most likely rent somewhere ourselves etc my friends house meets the accomodation levels required etc so thats why he wrote the supporting letter..so I take it he is not the sponsor..I am..even though i do not personally have any accomodation in the uk. how are you doing with your visa application...nightmare isnt it ?

Yes, the application process was a nightmare! It occupied my every spare waking (and often dreaming) moment until we submitted it a few weeks ago. Applications for settlement visa's take around 3 months to process here, so now we have the long wait to see if it was successful

Regarding the sponsorship...I sponsored my husband and we have lived together outside of the UK for over 6 years
