Hi,

 

Thanks for your question.

 

In order to be successful in making a claim for Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK as the victim of Domestic Violence, you need to show that the marriage has irretrievable broken down and that you did in fact suffer physical or domestic violence.

 

It is not detrimental to your case that you have only reported the matter once, however, you will need to provide sufficient evidence in order to ensure your application is successful.

 

I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly click accept.

 

If you wish to discuss, please feel free to ask further questions.

 

Kind regards,
