JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the UK government? What country do you live in? What is your citizenship?
Customer: exceptional circumstances request
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer about the tourist visa?
Customer: its for 6 months; no way to extend, right/
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

exceptional leave to return sent but no answer yet; is he able to remain at least until he gets a response????
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
its a straightforward question; is he protected until we get a reply from the exceptional circumstances email?

As you have sent an email before expiry of his leave he can stay in U.K. before expiry of leave but I do advise you sent follow up email so you have that too if any delays in response for exceptional assurance.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
the request may or may not accepted

If there are travel restrictions and you are unable to get home it will be considered.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
obvious; all we can do is email but he only has 9 days. he doesnt want to overstay
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
can he wait for a reply after 16th june or must he still exit if no reply

If he does not hear by the 16 I advise he should go before that date unless it’s impossible for him to travel then those circumstances are different.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
he cannot leave me or my father's life will be jeopardized as we are joint caregivers

You will then have to await a response.
