UK Spouse visa Fresh application allowed without withdrawing the appeal?

shah made this Freedom of Information request to Home Office

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Home Office,

I made the UK spouse visa application in time before my visa expiry however at that time my wife only had 4 months' worth of payslips. The Home Office had refused the visa application because of not meeting the financial requirement but was granted right of appeal.

I have appealed but got the appeal date which is about 6 months after, due to which I will have to face difficult times as I am stuck until then.
My query is that currently my wife has now got more than 6 months' of payslips and so do meet the requirements so is it possible without withdrawing the appeal to make a fresh application now with additional financial evidence not available earlier at the time of initial application because of which the application was refused?

Yours faithfully,

Dear DMC (Croydon),

Thank you for your response dated 04 March 2015.

Following up with your reply as you mentioned that I cannot make a fresh application without withdrawing the appeal and if I do withdraw the appeal my 3C leave will end. So can you please clarify as to what can I do in this situation because there should be some solution.

Yours sincerely,

You could try a reconsideration request and submit the extra documents. (Free to request). Be very careful about withdrawing appeal. Ensure u submit all recent financial evidenc to couurt too.
