Customer Question

My son is 4 and will be 5 in January, he is british. I'm no longer with his the dad. However, he lives with me with visitation rights accorded the dad by the courts in th uk. I'm a graduate not able to work due to my status and I cannot go back home as his dad has to see him every other week. Is there any rights for me here by law?

Hi
Have you contacted UKBA regarding this?
Claire

No I haven't


 


 

Expert:  Clare replied 4 years ago.
Hi
That is your starting point.
UKBA is under a great deal of pressure at the moment which means that there is a delay in appointments.
Your application is likely to be successful based on your ex's Right to a Family Life and you will then be able to work
I hope that this is of assistance to you
