Hi, thanks for your question. My name's XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you with it.
Unfortunately, any application to the UK Border Agency for further leave made by an applicant who has overstayed by more than 28 days will be automatically refused.
If you want to regularise your status and you have strong family ties here in the UK, you could consider applying for discretionary leave to remain. This is outside the immigration rules but in making such application, you will need to provide evidence of family or private life issues that would convince the Home Office to exercise their discretion in your favour. The application can be complex and I would recommend that you consult a solicitor before making it. The kind of family ties that are relevant are a wife, child, parent or long term partner who is entitled to or have obtained settlement in the UK.
Please don't hesitate to let me know if I can be of any further assistance or if you have any further questions.
