Hi,

I'm a UK citizen and my wife is approaching end of FLR. Have downloaded what I think is the latest form (Form SET(M): Version 04/2007.

However my wife wants to be sure as the form states it's for :

Spouse or civil partner of a person present and settled in
the UK.

We both think this doesn't sound quite right. I guess I am present and settled in the uk, but that's not exactly how I would refer to myself. AS we are going to LOS at Xmas, I just want to make sure I don't delay the postal process in October.
Anyone else found this wording slightly disconcerting?
It's probably just me?
thanks

Nick

Can you give more information?

How would you refer to yourself?
When and on what basis did your wife initially enter the UK?
When and on what basis did she obtain her FLR?

I am a UK citizen (born here). My wife came under a fiance visa in June 05, we married in NOV 2005 and she obtained FLR as my spouse 2 days later by apppointment at Croydon.
As my spouse she will in late Oct apply for ILR.

thanks

If you normally live in the UK, apart from holidays, then it is the correct form.

Has your wife passed the Life in the UK test or obtained a college certificate for ESOL/Life in the UK combined ?

Nick, what is the expiry date on your wife's current 2-year spouse visa, and if that visa was issued outside the UK, what date did she first enter the UK using that visa?

I confirm that SET(M) is the correct form to use, and yes, you are "present and settled in the UK".
