There are different groups of persons who can make Article 8 type applications.
Persons who have lived in the UK for up 20 years in the UK may apply for permission to remain in the UK. Young people who are over 18 years of age but under the age of 25 may also for permission to stay in the UK. Applications for children who have lived in the UK for at least 7 years may also apply for permission to remain.
In addition to the above, persons who do not fall into the above categories, including persons who have not been in the UK for up to 20 years may also apply to remain in the UK.
In certain cases the Home Office may also grant discretionary leave out the Immigration Rules where there are either compelling or compassionate reasons why leave should be granted exceptionally.
Our Immigration Department is able to provide advice and make representations for those who intend to make applications based on their Private and Family Life.
