I need to correct an earlier inaccuracy.
If you do not qualify as a partner, which you will not if the relationship has broken down, then you can qualify as the parent of a child who is:
- under the age of 18 on the date you apply;
- living in the UK; and - a British citizen or settled in the UK.
You will be given an initial period of 30 months and then can renew for 30 months, at which time you can apply for settlement. You will need to prove that you can maintain and accommodate yourself and obviously you will need to prove that you are the father.
