If you are in the UK and are unable to meet the requirements of the immigration rules for any other category but believe that being forced to leave the UK would breach your human rights or those of a family member, you can make a human rights application. It is important to demonstrate with evidence what the compelling circumstances in your case are.

Human rights are not just limited to the right to be safe from torture and ill-treatment (Article 3) but also include the right to a family life and private life (Article 8). Where children are involved, there must be an assessment of their best interests.

Our advisors will listen carefully to your story and prepare a tailor-made application, particular to your circumstances.

If successful, it is likely that you will be granted leave to remain for 30 months which will need to be extended until you have completed 10 years leave to remain in this category, after which you will be eligible to apply for settlement or indefinite leave to remain.
