Hi How can I Help
I will read your question and respond
When did you enter the UK? Have your reported the domestic violence to the police?
If you could answer when you entered the UK and if you called the police?
Do you have any evidence of proof of domestic violence took place in the marriage?
Section DVILR – E-DVILR of Appendix FM to the Immigration Rules sets out the requirements that an applicant must meet in order for an application for indefinite leave to remain as a victim of domestic abuse to be granted.
From the Home Office guidance, it is clear that the Home Office accepts that a wide range of behaviour falls under the definition of domestic abuse. They accept that abuse often goes beyond merely physical violence:
“Any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality.”
You need to obtain independent evidence - not just your own independent account - such as Hospital report, G.P evidence, letters from friends, photo evidence, psychiatric report etc in support of your claim.
It does not mean you cannot apply - but need evidence even a court injunction to show the Home office of violence you have been exposed.
I hope this information has been helpful

There is no right of appeal when you apply for Domestic violence. If application is refused you will get Administrative review only - the case will not go to court before an Immigration Judge
