Harvey, just to be sure and to avoid confusion for any who read this topic in the future, was your wife's visa a 2 year one? If so, the changes [the extra 3 months] have not affected the validity of your wife's 2 year visa - it will still expire 2 years after the date of issue (as opposed to 2 years and 3 months under the new rule). If your wife does not qualify for ILR because of either the 2 year qualification and/or the Knowledge of Life in the UK requirements then she must apply for FLR before
her current visa expires.
