Are you married or do you intend to marry?
If you intend to marry your partner, the best thing you could do is obtain a Certificate of Approval from the Home Office and then marry. Once married, you will be eligible to make an application for a Spouse Visa.
The alternative is to return to yoru home country, get married and then submit an application for a Spouse Visa.
I hope this answers yoru question. If so, kindly click accept.
If you wish to disucss, please feel free to ask further questions.
In order to obtain a CoA, you will need to make an application to the Home
Office. The fact that you have overstayed should not hinder your applciation based on the decision in the case of BAIAI.
They will not deport you if it is refused, however, it will put the Home Office on Notice that you are in teh UK illegally and may lead to further investigations being carried out.
If you are garnted a CoA, you will then be entitled to marry in the Uk and subsequently make an application for a Spouse Visa.
I hope this helps.
