He is currently unemployed as he needed to visit his Grandmother who was deteriorating rapidly, his visa expires 3 feb.

Hello,
Why was he issued with a residence permit for 2 years in 2014? Did he not apply for indefinite leave to remain?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He had received a caution for smacking my eldest daughter for being rude to him in a public place
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
So he was refused indef leave to remain and issued a further 2 years leave to remain
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 1 year ago.
Thank you.
In that case he should apply for indefinite leave to remain now. The minimum earnings would not apply in his case as his original application as under the rules in place before July 2012.
Hope this helps
