I am a Non Eu resident in UK. Can I apply for skilled worker

Customer Question

I am a Non Eu resident in UK.
Can I apply for skilled worker visa from inside UK? I got last visa as a EU extended family member in 2018. I am not applying for pre settlement because we are no longer together, so can I go for skilled worker visa? or what are the other options for me staying legally here?

Expert:  Lawyer21 replied 8 days ago.

When did the relationship come to an end

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
It’s a extended family member visa as unmarried partner, but I am no longer with my partner.
So can I switch to skilled worker visa if I able to find a sponsor?
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
2 years ago.
Expert:  Lawyer21 replied 8 days ago.

Yes you can switch. However, if your EEA Sponsor has informed the Home Office that your relationship has ended 2 years ago, your visa may have already been revoked/cancelled

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
She didn’t inform.
Expert:  Lawyer21 replied 8 days ago.

If this is correct you can apply from within the UK.

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
That I am sure about visa, it is still valid.
