Do you have any family in the UK and, if so, what is their immigration status in the UK?
Thanks for your question. I will try to help.
Unfortunately, the rules changed in this regard a while back.
Where you have a mix of legal residence and non-legal residence you can only apply after you have now reached 20 years in the UK.
The old rules whereby you could apply after 14 years have been abolished.
I am really sorry but under the current circumstances you would have to wait until you reach 20 years in the UK in order to apply for indefinite leave to remain. You would then have to wait 5 years from the date that you attain ILR and then apply to naturalise subject to the naturalisation eligibility criteria at the time.
This will remain the case unless and until your personal circumstances change (eg, by getting in to a relationship with someone, marriage or having a child).I really am sorry.
