It is not straight forward, but you can certainly try under human rights grounds.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
No other option aside the human right?can't they apply for indefinite leave or be registered as British?
Expert:  Lawyer21 replied 12 days ago.

Unfortunately, not for British. You can try ILR, I would advise against it as there are 3 children plus the fee for one application is almost £2,400.

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
True,but please enlighten me on the human right grounds
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
