Hello

Thank you for your enquiry.

This is what the rules say which I hope answers your questions.

"

If an applicant is to be refused under 320(7B), applications must be refused for the following periods:

  • 12 months if they left the UK voluntarily, not at the expense (directly or indirectly) of the secretary of state;
  • 2 years if they left the UK voluntarily, at the expense (directly or indirectly) of the secretary of state, more than 2 years ago; and the date the person left the UK was no more than 6 months after the date on which the person was given notice of the removal decision, or no more than 6 months after the date on which the person no longer had a pending appeal; whichever is the later
  • 5 years if they left UK voluntarily, at public expense;
  • 5 years if they were removed from the UK as a condition of a caution issued in accordance with s.134 legal aid, sentencing and punishment of offenders act 2012
  • 10 years if they were removed or deported from the UK;
  • 10 years if they practised deception (which includes using false documentation) in support of a previous visa application.

Where an applicant has overstayed, breached a condition of leave, was an illegal entrant, accepted a conditional caution or used deception in a leave to remain application, the automatic refusal period is dated from the date the applicant left the UK. Where an applicant has used deception in a visa application, the automatic refusal period is dated from the date (in which deception was used) was refused.

I have no deception.
Expert:  frantzgregory replied 11 months ago.

If you left the UK at your own expense and voluntarily the guidelines says you must be refused for a period of 12 months. The ban would normally apply to any visa application.

Is your partner British? Are they in work?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
She is british citizen and she is working
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
She is earning more then 18600 a year
Expert:  frantzgregory replied 11 months ago.

Although you have no deception, it is still an immigration offence to overstay your visa. From reading the guideline the refusal period may affect any application you make. But your partner should be able to sponsor you at the appropriate time if she meets the requirement.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
we can apply for spouse visa at anytime if she is earning 18600 and have a living arrangements
