I am currently on a definite leave to remain which expires

Customer Question

I am currently on a definite leave to remain which expires in December. I am supposed to apply for ILR then as I have been in a civil partnership and living in the uk on de DLR for 2 years by then. However, my civil partner has been unemployed since June and she has started claiming housing benefit from august this year. I am working and paying for my part of the expenses, but my income is not enough to pay for the 2 of us. The benefit she is claiming is only for her part of the rent which is 400 pounds. Do you think this will afect my IRL application? Addicional information - She is British and I am Brazilian.
