Immigration Law and Nationality - Private Life

You may be able to make an application to remain in the UK on the basis of your private or family life if:

  • You are less than 18 years old and have lived in the UK for at least 7 years and it is not reasonable to expect you to leave the UK.
  • You are a young person between 18 and 25 years old and have lived in the UK for more than half of your life.
  • You are over 25 and have lived in the UK continuously for more than 20 years.
  • You are over 18 and there are significant obstacles to returning to your country of origin.

Applications made under “Private Life” can be complex and require a lot of evidence.
