Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Good morning, please clarify your question and I am happy to help.
Did she come on a visitor visa on both occasions?
Alright, by law, she could apply for a pre-settled status now if she was issued with a settlement route family permit first.
Although, I have seen many cases where applications were approved regardless.
She could try applying for now but the chances of success are not high and it may be refused.
No, she will not be able to switch to a family visa from within the UK. Adult family dependant visas must be made from outside the UK.
There are concessions at present due to COVID19 but it may be removed at that time.
she could apply for a pre-settled status as I have stated above but you will be taking the risks. With regards ***** ***** adult dependant visa, she will require to leave the UK and apply from Romania.
I understand but she was here on a visitor visa not on a family permit visa, therefore it will not be taken into consideration by the Home Office, unfortunately.
I wish you good luck!
