"Eligibility for partners
Your current visa must be as a dependant on your partner’s tier 1, 2 or 5 visa.
If you got your current visa as your partner’s dependant after they settled in the UK, you must apply as the partner of a settled person instead.
You must also have been living with your partner in the UK for at least:
2 years if you applied for your current visa before 9 July 2012
5 years if you applied for your current visa on or after 9 July 2012"
如果ｄｅｐｅｎｄｅｎｔ所依附的一方由T2转永居时，持ｄｅｐｅｎｄｅｎｔ签证（9 July 2012前至今）的一方没有跟着同时转（因语言考试等原因），而是继续续签ｄｅｐｅｎｄｅｎｔ签证，现在条件符合了，准备转永居，属于上述那种类型？依照“2 years if you applied for your current visa before 9 July 2012” 路线吗？
