Hello,

The 7 year policy DP5/96 was previously a discretionary policy which was scrapped in 2008 but the good news is that it was incorporated into the Immigration Rules last year by the Home Office.

See this website of Arshad Mahmood: http://www.arshadmahmood.com/human-rights-applications/family-life-as-a-parent-of-a-child/initial-application-as-a-parent-of-child-who-has-lived-in-the-uk-for-seven-years-continuously.html

I suggest you speak to these Solicitors as they have a very good grasp of the law as the Solicitors you spoke to previously clearly do not.

All the best. Please leave feedback
