    ***UPDATE***

    I have submitted everything with NCS on the 11th April 2014. The lady who did my case said it should be delivered on Monday the 14th and should take less than 3 months. So we'll see how long it'll take til I've got the letter from them saying I should book the ceremony.

    Thank you everyone about the information, unless I would wait for another year before submitting and god knows what changes they might try to do in a year time.

    Yes, provided you meet with all the requirements of Section 6(2). You should be okay.

    Hi Vinny

    A Thai friend has just been refused under Section 6(1). Her application was received on 28 May 2014 but she was not in UK on 29 May 2009.
    She first arrived UK on 21 August 2008 (Visit Visa) and back to Thailand (15 Dec 2008 - 9 Jan 2009).
    In UK again on 10 Jan 2009 (Visit Visa) and in Thailand (14 Feb - 20 Aug 2009)
    Married in UK 10 April 2010.
    ILR 28 August 2012.
    Did not residence time start from 21 August 2008 when she first arrived?

    You have to have been in the uk legally 3 years to the day from the date the application is received provided this was the case then no more than 270 days away (0 final year.

    The start of the residential qualifying period is calculated backwards from when they receive the application.

    Ash is correct, if she is married to a British citizen. If she was in the UK on 29 May, 2011, then she may be okay under 3(a), Section 6(2).

    However, if she isn't married to a British citizen, then her absence on 29 May 2009 would make her fail 1(2)(a), Section 6(1).

    Thanks Ash & Vinny

    Unfortunately her husband is French. She has to resubmit it then.

    If spouse/civil partner of a British citizen then it's 3 years under Section 6(2).
    Else, it's 5 years under Section 6(1).
