I would give you a helpful response if I knew what the hell you were on about. Ever heard of punctuation? what are you referring to about 28 days?

The application should be made within the last 28 days of the validity of the existing visa.

Is there a reason why she intends to apply for FLR rather than ILR?

I presume she is here on a 2 year spousal visa?

Subject to the laws (http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/policyandlaw/immigrationlaw/) in place at the time, she may apply (http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecontent/documents/policyandlaw/IDIs/idichapter1a/) for SET(M) (http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/ukresidency/settlement/applicationtypes/applicationformset(m)/) (288 (http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/policyandlaw/immigrationlaw/immigrationrules/part8/)) between [26 March (2nd anniversary of initial arrival (http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/travellingtotheuk/Enteringtheuk/)) - 28 days (i.e. 4 weeks)] and [14 March (i.e. visa's expiry (http://www.ukvisas.gov.uk/en/ecg/chapter1#point%20three))].

i.e. she (http://thailand-uk.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/96010002/m/9271098902?r=9271098902#9271098902) may apply (http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecontent/documents/policyandlaw/IDIs/idichapter1a/) for SET(M) (http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/ukresidency/settlement/applicationtypes/applicationformset(m)/) (288 (http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/policyandlaw/immigrationlaw/immigrationrules/part8/)) between 26 Feb 2009 and 14 March 2009.

As it is ILR your wife will apply for, the earliest date she could apply is 26 March in order to satisfy the 2 year residency requirement for ILR applications. She must apply before her existing leave expires. There is no such residency requirement for FLR.

Tobias, suspect you mean 26 February, not 26 March!
