How Strict Are Ukba With Cohabitation Rules?
Posted 31 October 2012 - 10:06 AM
My partner is an Australian, and I'm a UK citizen. He's currently over on a YMS visa, which runs out in April next year. The issue that we have is that his visa started 8th April 2011, but he arrived 9th April 2011 - meaning that we're one day short of the 2 years needed. We've lived together from the day he arrived, and we both meet the financial requirements. We're engaged to be married in October next year, so hopefully that will show that we're not just a cohabiting boyfriend and girlfriend!
I was just wondering if anyone has gone through anything similar and whether this one day short will cause a problem?
Many thanks in advance!!

As the break was more than six months, you can't include the period when you were in Aus, and 9th April would be the start of the period under consideration. He would have to apply before his current visa expires. So I would assume that 7 April would be the limit. As a matter or interest, what is the date of the official letter or bill (addressed to him) that falls closest to this date ?
That's what I thought also, I guess that means the 5th really as the 7th is a Sunday? I have the first rental agreement which has him down as a person living there, which started 1st April, but otherwise he'll have his national insurance information which would've been from sometime in April also (not sure of the date exactly!)

Many thanks for your reply, we were hoping to do the same day/face to face servic-do you think we'll get denied doing it this way?
