Thanks for your reply.
You need to instruct a solicitor to act on your behalf at the removals hearing when it happens.
There is a Human Rights argument that can help you because you have a child here. If you can prove that the child is to remain here in the UK and that you have been present in her life in the same way a normal caring father would be then you can argue that neither she or you should have their human right Article 8 to a family and private life prejudiced by your removal. Your solicitor will know how to argue this.
The problem with your girlfriend is that you are not married and to be treated as being the same as man/wife you have to have lived together for 2 years. Had this been the case your Human Rights Article 8 right would be strengthened further.
if you instruct a solicitor to act on your behalf to argue your case on the basis of your UK national child and your positive influence on her life then you should be successful in avoiding being removed.
If your case is not made out at the hearing then you will be removed from the UK and will face having to make an application for discretionary leave to remain on the basis of your UK child. This is fairly difficult to do from outside the UK but you can do it.
You need to get your girlfriend to speak to solicitors based in the same locality as you practising immigration law. You can use the following website to find them. You need to do this immediately:-
