OTS Successful Discretionary Leave To Remain for Father of British Child
Our client, Mr E was the father of a British child. The child’s mother restricted E’s access to his child, and following a dramatic change of circumstances, he required an extension of his discretionary leave to remain in the UK.
Extending Discretionary leave to remain
Discretionary leave to remain is usually granted for no more than two and a half years. Longer leave may be granted, if, as in the above case, it is the best interests of a child.
Following our preparation of the application, drafting the legal grounds of argument and collating the relevant evidence, the Immigration Tribunal was satisfied with Mr E's case to remian in the UK despite a breakdown in his marriaghe and he successfully obtained his extension.
