Does it make an effect to get ILR on 10 years base lawful

This answer was rated:

does it make an effect to get ILR on 10 years base lawful residence in uk because uk is going to come out of EU?
My ILR is due in September 2017. 10 years settlement is comes under uk law or EU law?

1. Dear Usman, the 10 year settlement requirement is a requirement of UK law. Not EU law. Accordingly, this 10 year requirement is most unlikely to change just because the UK is coming out of the EU. There will still be a 10 year requirement in September 2017, when you will be applying. Domestic UK Law will not be affected by Britain leaving the EU. Additionally be aware that under Article 50 of the EU Treaty, there is a two year period during which Britain will remain part of the EU but negotiate exit terms. So even if this 10 settlement requirement was part of Eu Law, which it is not, it would not be affected before the UK left the EU.
