Indefinite Leave to Remain

representatives had made an expensive error on her application. Her application was refused. We assisted her in
2010 to regularise her status and argued on the gap.
In December 2013 we successfully obtained her
indefinitely leave to remain (ILR) under the 10year rule. Her ILR was
granted within 4 months of our application
Leave granted by the court following a successful appeal. The
applicant is the spouse of a British National, she had been refused Leave to enter because her husband had other
children in the UK and was previously with another partner. The UKBA argued that the husband had not provided
sufficient evidence that the UK relationship had ended.
We successfully argued that there was no requirement for formal
documents to show the ending of a relationship which was not a marriage. The Court agreed and the applicant was
granted leave to enter the UK to join her husband.
