Hi Michelle,How long has he been in the UK?Does he have a Spouse Visa? If so, when does it expire?
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
He has lived here for 8 years on a spouse visa but he did have trouble with that as his wife and daughter assaulted him and she wanted him gone but they got back to gather and he didn't press charges and they said he has to stay here for 10 years with her

Does that mean that he is still on a Spouse Visa and not obtained ILR?
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
he is still on a spouse's visa

Hi Michelle,

Is the daughter his? If not, unfortunately, unless he is able to switch to another category of visa, it is unlikely he will be able to apply for indefinite leave to remain and as such will have to return to his home country.

I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Kind regards,
