Expert:  Thomas replied 6 years ago.

Right, and what is your specific question - is it what will happen to me if the UK Border Agency find that I am here illegally and is there anything I can do to stay here?


If not, please clarify.


When did your tourist visa expire and did you make a further application to stay being the wife of a UK ctizen?



Kind regards,

when my visa runout i stayed in this coutrie for many years illegally and only 4month ago that i got mirred to a french citizen but he is divorcing me and also he notified the home office of my situation for that they deport me out the uk.

Right. Firstly, you have my sympathies. It's obviously a very difficult situation and you have plainly been unlucky in choosing the man to marry.


Unfortunately, as you presently have no right to stay in the UK because you are here illegally the UKBA will deport you if they are able to trace you.


If you are married to a EEA national you could apply for an EEA resident permit but if your husband will inform them during the application process then the application would not be successful.


In order for a person to obtain indefinite leave to remain after having been here illegally they would have to be able to prove that they have been continuously resident here for 14 years, which obviously you haven't attained.


I'm very sorry it could not be better news.
