    Hi Hawra3903,

    Thanks for all the information. As we don't have access to individual accounts here can I ask what was the reason given for refusing your application?

    Thanks,

    Hi Hawra3903,

    Thank you for the answers. I suspect it is to do with your current status in the UK.

    You noted that your visa expired on the 8th of May 2017 the application for 'settlement' was made before this date. What kind of visa was it and what is your current status in the UK?

    Thanks,
