Hi I've got another question my daughter came her as a child and was a dependant of me , she left to go back to Trinidad when she was 16 because my partner was claiming for her as he had custody of her , application was made at British embassy in Trinidad , but she was denied status , in 2008 she had a baby , and then I brought the baby with her back to uk , the baby's dad is not in the picture, ....Coming throughout Costoms she was stopped and detained for the day ,because she was a minor ,they let her go ... Then it took one year for them to do their paper work ,immigration waited till she turned 18 then told her she had to leave , that was 2011 . Now she's an over stayed ,she is not detained ,just overstayed, the baby is 4 years old ,and she has never claimed public funds. I would like to put an application in for her , could you advise which form do I use ,and the procedure ...???? Thank you ....

Hello,I am happy to deal with your UK immigration law issues. What is your status and what is your daughter's baby's status?Thank you
I'm leave to remain ,but my daughter and her son are overstayers .... I was told because she's over 18 that she has to apply on her own , is that so ????Thank you for your advice ....
Thank you,Yes, I am afraid your daughter and her baby would need to qualify for a UK visa/leave to remain in their own right.What visa did your daughter and baby use to enter the UK the last time they entered the UK?
They did not need a visa to enter the uk ..
You do not need a visa when coming from Trinidad to uk ... Because the queen is head of commonwealth ., so that's why .....
Thank you for clarifying.Like I said it will be a hard application to make, but you may try loding an application using form FLR(O) and give reasons why they should both be allowed to remain in the UK e.g. human rights. I suggest you appoint a good immigration lawyer for this case. I suggest you contact Chatham Chambers to represent you: www.chathamchambers.co.ukHope this helps
