Gap in 10years

Post by Karish » Wed Feb 12, 2020 7:48 pm

Hi all members

I would be grateful if you could help me out.

Here is my immigration history:

I came in the uk 16 September 2009( my entry clearance start 21 August 2009) - had leave until 21 November 2010. I got refused because I didn’t have English certificate (IELTS) when renewing. I appealed and succeeded but Home Office didn’t respond for 2 yrs.

In June 2013 Home Office wrote to me allowing me to send a fresh application due to my sponsorship (college) is closed. I got 90 days leave outside the rule until 1 September 2013.

I applied on 30 August 2013 and got my visa on 17 Oct 2013 until 21 December 2015.

On 21 December 2015 I applied on my unmarried partner outside the rule and got refused on 24 January 2017 with right of appeal.

On 6 September 2018 Court refused my appeal and on 21 September 2018 I re apply. (Same on unmarried partner)

On 18 March 2019 Home office refused my application and sent another application on 11 April 2019.

I completely my 10 years on 16 September 2019 and separated from my partner end of September.

My solicitor varied my application on the 10 years basis on 29 December 2019 and live with my new partner (Irish) he is supporting me.

I done my biometric on 22 January 2020

I’m waiting for the Home office to reply on my application.

My questions are:

From 18 March 2019 until 11 April 2019 is it out of time application I made?

With your experience what chances do I have to be successfully

Thanks

You do not have 10 years of lawful residence since September 2018 when you exhausted your appeal. Your SET(LR) unlikely to succeed. This has been upheld in courts too (Ahmed's case). We have a long running thread on pretty much identical cases: indefinite-leave-to-remain/ilr-10-years ... 81021.html

Thanks Zumba for clarifying the matter.

How can I resolve this issue.

Because my solicitor told me it’s 50/50 if Home Office apply discretion on my case or 39e can be applicable?

I just read the amendment version of the 39E Guidance :

Limited leave

Before 2 April 2007 it was not possible to grant limited leave to remain on the basis of long residence. On 2 April 2007, paragraph 276A1 and paragraph 276A2 were added to the Immigration Rules.
This allows long residence applicants to be granted limited leave to remain, if:
• they have had at least 10 years continuous lawful residence in the UK
• there are no reasons why it would be undesirable for them to be given leave to
remain, see: 10 years continuous lawful residence
• the applicant must not be in breach of immigration laws, except:
o for any period of overstaying for 28 days or less which will be disregarded where the period of overstaying ended before 24 November 2016
o where overstaying on or after 24 November 2016, leave was nevertheless granted in accordance with paragraph 39E of the Immigration Rules
Limited leave to remain is granted under paragraph 276A2 of the long residence category of the Immigration Rules, and not as an extension of their previous category of limited leave to remain. This means an applicant must meet the rules for long residence, and not the rules for their previous category.

What is your point on the above guidance

You do not meet the requirements of the long residence (10 years of lawful residence) so both limited leave or ILR will fail under paragraph 276. I also gone over your dates again and ironically paragraph 39E does not even apply to you. You did not apply within 14 days of becoming an overstayer in your last application (11 April 2019) as you already were an overstayer since your appeal failed in 2018. In my view, your lawful residence was broken when your application was refused on 18 March 2019 and you failed to regularise your stay.

Zimba thanks for your reply

Do you mean Home office will refuse my application on the ground of overstayed?

No as you fail the long residence requirement but I'd say you case is not even relevant to issue of paragraph 39E as that does not even apply to you. So any future argument in the court is not gonna hold

That does not mean paragraph 39E applies. Even if it did, you do not qualify for ILR as courts have determined

Hi Zimba

Thanks for your reply. Hope you are doing well.

Do you think the home office might grant me leave under exception/discretion leave in my case?

Possibly not. Your queries are not relevant to the scope of ILR. Being granted leave outside the rules or under human rights without a very strong case is not possible.

There is no such route for simply having a partner. Your relationship should be genuine, akin to marriage and subsisting. Simply having a partner is not gonna cut it. As I said it is outside the scope of ILR.

Hi Zimba I am in a relationship with an Irish citizen living and working in the uk or many years.

When I varied my application to set LR last December I have informed the Home office already that I’m in a relationship with an Irish citizen and they have requested evidences regarding our relationship.

My question is if my set Lr application gets refused, Can I apply on my Irish partner?

But my worry is that I won’t be able to show evidences for living together for the last 2 years as I just moved in with him. we will be able to provide evidences such as joint utility bills, joint bank account, etc for 6/7months.

Which category do I need to apply if I need to?

Regards
Karishma

You mentioned above that you separated from your partner end of September :?
Without strong evidence of a relationship akin to marriage in the last two years, the chances are quite low. You may have to look at the EU settlement scheme when your partner is Irish (an EU citizen). Please start a new topic in the EEA sub forum. As I said this is not relevant to ILR anymore

Good morning Zimba
I will start in a new one but mine is a mixed.

Yes I ended my relationship in September 2019 with my British partner while my (10 April 2019) application was pending at the home.

And I varied my application to set Lr on December 2019 and live with my new Irish partner from December and also informed the Home office when I varied my application to set Lr.

And home office has requested me evidences on my
/our relationship that started last December.

Therefore my question is if my set Lr gets refused can I apply on my Irish partner.
( if you say so then I can start a new topic)

Thanks Zimba for all your support
