FAO Tom: Hi, I intend to commence the process of regularising my status in the UK. can I please ask what are my chances of regularising my status in-country having overstayed my 6-months visitor's visa for nearly two years. I came into the uk in June 2011. I was a 2nd year student before coming to the uk on holiday. I did not return back due to death threats I have constantly received by some secret cult members back at UNI (no documentary evidence) thereby making it undesirable and unsafe for me to return home to continue my studies as these groups of people can be very dangerous. You can't hide in any part of the country. They are all over the place. I'm currently engaged to marry a Uk permanent resident and have been in a genuine and subsisting relationship for about 13 months. We do have documentary evidence of living together for about only a year. We also have a joint savings account with little or no funds in it, a joint-life insurance policy, joint tenancy agreement (all inclusive bill though), we also have pictures and receipts of every treats and holidays we've had. We also enjoy the blessings of our both families. My fiancée works and earns over the £18600 financial threshold for sponsors. We do not have any kids neither are we planning to have one until my status is regularised. Can you please advise on how to go about it? Many thanks and God bless. Lasgidi.
