yes am the actual mother of the child


Thank you for your reply.

What I would suggest you do is apply for discretionary leave to remain in the uk if you do not want to leave the uk. In addition if your child is attending school and your husband is working in the uk, then this would give you stronger reasons for remaining in the uk. I suggest you apply using form FLR O please see the following link :

Because your application is complicated I suggest you consult a solicitor to assist you with the application and compile the required documents.

I hope this answers your question if so kindly rate my answer positively so I can get credited for my time. If however you feel that the answer does not cover all the points raised in your question please DO NOT rate my answer negatively I will be happy to answer further question until you are satisfied with my answer.
