Thank you for your question.
Please could you tell me how old your son is?
Please could you also tell me if you are dependent upon your son for your financial or healthcare needs?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Could you please confirm whether he is living in the UK at present.
Are you living in the UK with him?
Are you the sole provider for your son?
What about the other child's parent, could you explain the situation there?
I need to know this information to determine your legal standing to argue rights as your son's primary carer.
On the basis of the recent European Court ruling in Ruiz Zambrano, you should be able to apply for the right to remain with your son.
However, you should know that the UK has not yet adopted rules to give effect to that ruling (as confirmed on the Home Office's UKBA website:http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecontent/newsarticles/2011/june/02-european-court-judgments
What I suggest is for you now is to contact the European Commission's Your Europe Advice service. They will be able to provide you free advice on your rights (and they can also refer you to free legal representation if you need it):http://ec.europa.eu/citizensrights/front_end/index_en.htm
I hope this answers your question.
I hope that my answer was useful to you.
If so I'd be grateful if you could accept my answer so that I may be compensated for my time.
I thank you in advance.
