If you have been living in the UK for several years, you may be able to make an application to remain in the UK on the basis of your private life.
Private Life in the UK – Limited Leave to Remain
Private life in the UK: Obtain a UK visa based on Private life
We are able to help you legalise your stay in the UK, even if your circumstances might be seen as hopeless, your stay is difficult to evidence, or you would face significant obstacles to your integration into the country you would have to go to if required to leave the UK.
The private life route is a 10- year route to settlement and is only open to people already in the United Kingdom.
You must be able to prove that you are:
- under 18 and you have lived in the UK continuously for at least 7 years, and it would be unreasonable to expect you to leave the UK.
- between 18 and 24 and you have lived continuously in the UK for more than half your life.
- 18 or over, have spent less than 20 years in the UK and would face very significant obstacles to integrate in the country you’d have to go to – those obstacles will exist where you can demonstrate that you would be unable to establish a private life in the country of return, or where establishing a private life in the country of return would entail very serious hardship for you.
- 25 or over, and you have been in the UK continuously for 20 years.
If the Home Office approves your application, you will be granted limited leave to remain in the UK for 30 months, which you would need to renew. After you have completed 120 months (10 years) of lawful and continuous residence in the UK on the grounds of your private life you may be able to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (Hyperlink) which would path your way to British Citizenship (Hyperlink) if you wish to.
