Applying for Settlement as a wife in the UK as a US national

edited March 2011 in Visa and Passport
I am an American applying for Settlement as a wife in the UK. Today I'm am filling out the online application form "VAF4A Settlement" and I've come to a section of the application that I am quite stuck on. It is asking me specifics about my British husbands passport. The form requires me to fill in the date of issue and the date of expiry for his British passport. The thing is, his passport is expired. We didn't think that a big deal since he won't be leaving the UK for several more years so we didn't think it would need to stay valid. So here I am needing to answer this question in the online application form correctly but the system will not accept his expiry date since prior to today. It returns the following message: ""The date must be today or later". Does my British husbands passport need to be renewed before I can apply to Settle there as his wife? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
