Student Visa Overstay, In Uk Since 1995, Wants To Take Lifeintheuktest And Become Legally Here
Posted 29 November 2012 - 11:17 AM
She would like to take the LifeintheUK test as a step towards becoming legally here. The problem is that all the utility bills etc. are in her partner's name and that she does not have a bank account in her name. So she is unable to prove her address, and so unable to register online for the LifeintheUK test. She has tried to open a bank account, but has been refused.
To complete the picture her mother has had a full UK passport for 10 years.
Please, any suggestions as to how she can take the steps to register for a LifeintheUK test. Also, as she has been here 17 years, and has two children who were born here, should she apply directly to the Home Office to have her residency legalised.
Many thanks for any help.

I can't see why she can't get her name on a bill. She needs to contact the utilities companies.

Thanks for replying. I will speak to her about getting her name on a utility bill.
You say that the test is not important and that 'She needs to look to get her status sorted out'. What would be the process to do that please?
