Thank you for your question.

You may be able to make an application to the Home Office for discretionary leave to remain in the UK. A discretionary leave application will seek to argue a person’s circumstances and backgrounds such as their age, length of residence in the UK, strength of connections within the UK, personal history including character, conduct and employment record, domestic circumstances, previous criminal record and nature of any offence for which a person has been convicted, compassionate circumstances and any representations received on the person’s behalf. The Home Office will consider whether the person has ties back in their native country of origin or the country where they would have to go to if returned

To make a good application it is likely you will need professional legal advice in order to be successful. Please get in touch so we can assist you further.
