Private Life – Human Rights
If you would like to remain in the UK on the basis of your Private Life rights, you may be eligible to apply under this route.
You can apply at any time, but the longer you have been in the UK and the stronger the ties you have established here, the greater the likelihood of your application being successful.
You must be able to prove that either you are between the ages of 18 and 24 and have lived more than half your life in the UK, or that you are over the age of 18 and have lived fewer than 20 years but that you would face very significant problems living in the country you would otherwise be removed to, for instance you can not speak the language there or learn it. You would need to demonstrate that you have established your life in the UK and that you have strong ties here, including family ties, social ties and working ties. Please note that if you have lawfully lived in the UK for more than 10 years, you may apply under the 10 year long residence route, and if you have lived in the UK for more than 20 years, whether lawfully or unlawfully, you may apply under the 20 year route long residence route.
