The next step after being granted my fiance visa after moving to England was to apply for Further Leave to Remain. Further Leave to Remain allows you to have probabtionary citizenship for 2 years. You are also able to work in the UK once granted FLR. I will be applying for Further Leave to Remain (Marriage). In order to apply for this, you must be married (your marriage certificate is required as part of your application. Here are the steps I took to obtain my FLR (M):
1. Get married (har har).
2. Schedule appointment with the proper Immigration Office. Dan and I will be going to the Croydon office since that is nearest to where we live. You can do your online book here. You also have the option of applying by post, which is less expensive, but can take 2-3 months to process rather than having the same day response with an in person appointment.
3. Here is a rundown of what will happen at your appointment.
Documents that are required at your appointment:
-Your and your partner’s passports
-Two passport photos
-Proof of finances (at least 3 months of bank statements and payslips)
