Customer Question

Hi, my name is Patience.
Q: Kids born in the UK in 2005, left the UK in 2005 and returned in July 2008 as my dependants. Subsequently applied for extension as my dependants but stooped extending their Leave to Remain in 2013 as was advised didn't need to do this.
I have applied for ILR which is still pending, and now the Home Office wants to know their whereabouts.
Please how do I go about this?

Children born in the UK while the parents had valid leave to remain do not need to do anything ONLY if they have not left the UK and have not applied to regularise their status. If you left the UK with your children and return with them, I am afraid the advice you received not to include them in your visa was wrong.

You must inform the Home Office where your children are
