Hi, I’m Lea and I will be assisting you with your query today.
If your relationship is over, then you have to notify the home office about this and apply for a different visa. If you have a British child, then it is very likely you will succeed in obtaining a visa based on the child, especially if you are the main carer of the child. See the link here for further information on who to contact about the change in your circumstances, and further details on how to apply for an alternative visa. Remember that you do not have to put up with physical or emotional abuse, so do not stay in this relationship just because you think there are no alternatives. There are. You can comtact Women's Aid for more help via their website: www.womensaid.org.uk
And info on the visa situation is here: https://www.gov.uk/visas-when-you-separate-or-divorce
The following is useful info to assist you with the site:
Can I clarify anything for you about what I have written, or has that answered your query?
You can claim child maintenance - see www.gov.uk/child-maintenance.
Speak to Women's Aid regarding the abuse. Your spousal visa will be over the moment the relationhip ends and you are obliged to inform the Home Office, see the link I provided.
Please open new threads for new topics in future.
All the best.
