hello, am still in the uk but am not living with the father of my kids. he is also in the uk. my visa expired so I am just here.

Thank you.

If your children are studying here in the UK and you are their primary carer, you may apply for a Derivative Residence Card, it does not matter that your visa has expired. See here for the application form DRF1:

ok thank you so much. please I would like to know what are the requirements ,I do not work at the moment. I am on benefit and I receive my children benefits too. how will this be possible? thanks

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
The requirements are that you have to be the primary carer of your children. the father of the children can write a letter confirming this which you can submit with your application for the Derivative Card.
