ILR on the basis of 10 years Long Residency

Customer Question

Hi, I wanted to apply for ILR on the basis of Long Residency in UK. Throughout the period never had any immigration problem or visa refused. I entered in UK in June 2005.

Only problem i am having is in July 2010 i went to pakistan and have been there for 10 Months due to my circumstances.

I am living with my wife and son who was born in Pakistan and now he is school going. I have also invested £60k in Business in UK and have couple of Employees. I also completed Masters Degree in UK . I read in Guidance that SSHD can Grant the leave with gap if you have any compassionate & compelling circumstances.

in my case i initially went to pakistan to get married. my planned trip was for 3 Months but i fall in sick and was daignoed with TB, i remainded under treatment for 6 months and in mean while my mum fall in sick daignosed stroke and died after 3 months treatment. I returned to UK soon after my mother died. Also during all this time i was on unpaid holidays from my Job and i returned to work when came back to UK.

My question is what are chances of success with compelling circumstances? does my circumstances fall in compelling circumstances? if possible please provide any case law reference.
