Hi,

 

Thanks for your question.

 

If there were incidents of physical violence and you report them to the police then you may be able to make an application for ILR on this basis. The basic requirements are:-
§ you have been given permission to enter or remain in the UK as the husband, wife, civil partner or unmarried/same-sex partner of a British citizen or a person settled here (even if that permission is no longer valid);
§ your relationship was existing and genuine (not a 'marriage of convenience', for example) when you were last given permission to enter or remain; and
§ you were the victim of domestic violence, and this is what caused the relationship to break down before the end of your permission to enter or remain.

You would have to produce documentary evidence of the domestic violence, statements and evidence of police report/action taken.

You would have to apply using the UKBA's form SET(DV) which is available for download from their website.

There are some guidance notes on the application here:-
