ILR - As Victim Of Domestic Violence

There are special provisions under UK Immigration Law which allow individuals who come to the UK under a spouse or partner visa to apply for Indefinite leave to remain immediately if they experience domestic violence within their relationship.

The law surrounding this special provision is complex, and evidence of domestic violence is required.  Our Immigration Solicitors can assist you with filling in the correct forms and collating the proof required in a sensitive, confidential manner. 

Your safety is our number one priority and we have the experience needed in this area of immigration law to ensure it is never compromised during the process.

The General Probationary Periods for Individuals Entering the UK Holding a Spouse or Partner Visa

 If you came to the UK as the wife, partner or civil partner of someone who is British or has Indefinite leave to remain (ILR) the general probationary periods before you can apply for ILR are as follows:

  • If you made your application for a spouse or partner visa before 9th July 2012 it is likely that you will have been given a probationary period of 24 months leave. When the probationary period comes to an end, but before it expires, if everything in the relationship is going well you can apply for Indefinite leave to remain (ILR). Indefinite leave to remain is the right to live permanently in the UK.
  • If you applied for a spouse or partner visa after 9th July 2012, then you are likely to have been given 30 months leave to remain at first. You must apply for a renewal of the probationary period for a further 30 months before making an application after 5 years (the total probationary period) for ILR.

The Domestic Violence Rule

Under the domestic violence rule, if you experience domestic violence in your relationship then you can apply for ILR immediately, without having to complete your probationary period.  The rule applies even if you have overstayed your visa.

To be eligible, you must show:

  1. you have been given permission to remain in the UK as the spouse, civil partner or partner of a person present and settled in the UK (this means that you are currently on, or were on, a spouse visa); and,
  2. you were in a continuing relationship with your spouse, civil partner or partner (this means that you lived together when you arrived in the UK or were given your visa); and,
  3. you are able to provide evidence that your relationship with your spouse, civil partner or partner was caused to permanently break down before the end of the probationary period because of domestic violence.

Domestic violence can include physical, sexual, psychological, emotional or financial abuse.

The key element needed to make a successful application is evidence that the relationship between you and your sponsor has broken down permanently because of domestic violence.

Types of Evidence

The best types of evidence to support an ILR application under the domestic violence include:

  • a court conviction
  • police reports
  • medical reports
  • non-molestation and occupation orders being sought

How We Can Help

No matter what your circumstances, we will advise you as to the strengths and weaknesses of your case and ensure you have the correct supporting documents you need to make a successful application.

ILR Form Set (F) - Application for Children

Indefinite leave to remain (ILR), which is also commonly referred to as a Permanent Residence application is suitible for those that intend to stay in the UK and remain here for the foreseeable future.

Any individual applying for ILR must now pass the ‘Life in the UK’ test and this will have to be evidenced as part of the application. We can advise and help you locate the appropriate test centre and to prepare for the test.

A member of our immigration team will assess your eligibility for ILR by considering the minimum period of time that you are require to hold residence in the UK before applying for ILR. This period of time depends on the type of visa you hold and depends on the following factors:

  • You visa category
  • Your ability to maintain yourself financially
  • Your marital status and if you have a partner, their nationality
  • Your immigration history

With the dedication of the best Immigration Solicitors in London, your chances of a successful application for Indefinite leave to remain are higher. A grant of ILR will allow you to settle in the UK permanently without having to extend your visa again; You will be free to engage in business activities and take up employment; and You will be free to travel to and from the UK without restriction.

ILR - As A Dependent Child

If you are settled in the UK, or have successfully applied for a visa, the UK Government will permit you to bring any dependent children under the age of 18 years into the country with you.

Children need stability and certainty.  It is therefore imperative that you seek legal advice when making plans to bring a dependent child to the UK, as there are certain conditions that must be met in order for the child to gain indefinite leave to enter.

At OTS Solicitors, we can clarify any ambiguity in your application and collate all the documentation required, to ensure you application for your dependent child goes through as quickly and smoothly as possible.  All our staff pay immense attention to detail, which gives our clients the confidence of knowing their application to the UK Border Agency is likely to be accepted first time.

Eligibility Requirements for Indefinite Leave to Enter as a Dependent Child

  • In most cases both parents must be present and settled in the UK
  • The child must be under 18 years old
  • The child must not be living an independent life (for example, they cannot be married or have formed an independent family unit)
  • There must be sufficient money to support the child without having to use public funds

Situations Where Only One Parent Is Settled and Present in the UK

A child may be granted indefinite leave to enter the UK in order to live with only one parent if:

  • One parent is a British citizen or has indefinite leave to remain, and the other parent is dead; or
  • One parent is a British citizen or has indefinite leave to remain, and that parent has had sole responsibility for the child's upbringing; or
  • One parent is a British citizen or has indefinite leave to remain, and there are serious and compelling family or other considerations that mean that it would not be in the child’s best interests to exclude them from the UK.

The UK Border Agency is very strict when it comes to assessing whether or not the sponsoring parent has sole responsibility.  Any involvement from the other parent may lead to an adverse decision regarding the entry leave application.  It is imperative that you seek expert legal advice in order to avoid any inference that you, as the sponsoring parent, do not have sole responsibility.

 

The children of EEA nationals exercising Treaty Rights in the UK are permitted to join their parents in the UK up until the age of 21 years. They are still required to comply with the requirements of not being married or having formed an independent family unit and being financially independent.

ILR – Humanitarian Protection and Discretionary Leave

If an individual faces serious consequences if they were to return to their home country, but do not meet the criteria needed to be classed as a refugee, then they may be granted Humanitarian Protection or Discretionary Leave.

Humanitarian Protection may be granted if an individual faces one of the following risks to his or her safety if they were returned to their own country:

  • the death penalty
  • unlawful killing
  • torture or inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment
  • harsh or inhumane prison conditions which contravene Article 3 of the European Convention of human rights
  • Serious and individual threat to a civilian’s life or person by reason of indiscriminate violence in situations of international or internal armed conflict

The standard of proof used to establish whether or not a person is at real risk of serious harm if they are returned to their country of origin is ‘is there a reasonable likelihood of serious harm occurring?’.

If you are granted, Humanitarian Protection will be granted leave to enter or remain for five years. Indefinite leave to remain may be granted after five years of leave. Those granted Humanitarian Protection have access to public funds, are entitled to work, to apply for an integration loan, and have access to family reunion, on the same basis as refugees.

Indefinite Leave to Remain – Discretionary Leave to Remain Following Refusal of Asylum (DL Application)

In exceptional circumstances, discretionary leave to remain may be granted to those who do not meet the criteria for refugee status and fail to gain Humanitarian Protection.  The Home Office has the power to grant ‘discretionary leave to remain’ if it feels that the applicant’s circumstances justify such a step to be taken. 

The Policy Instruction on Discretionary Leave, states that “the Discretionary Leave (DL) must not be granted where an individual qualifies for leave under the immigration rules or for Leave outside the Rules (LOTR) for Article 8 reasons. It only applies to those who provide evidence of exceptional, compassionate circumstances, or there are other compelling reasons to grant leave on a discretionary basis.”

Examples of situations that may lead to discretionary leave being granted include:

  • Some medical cases
  • Situations involving modern slavery
  • Circumstances where returning the person to their country of origin would breach the European Convention of human rights
