Hi, I'm asking for advice on behalf of a friend whose situation is rather tricky and complicated.

1) He arrived in the UK (Dover) in 2000 using a fake UK passport. It was realised his passport was fake and he was questioned.

2) He lied to them and said that he was Algerian (he's not) and gave a fake name, and said he was claiming asylum. He was released pending investigation and two years later they told him his application was denied and he was to leave the Country.

3) Since that time he has been an Asylum overstayer but has been working in 'fake' names and has nothing to show that he has been in the uk under his real name.

4) Two years ago they wrote to him based on his Asylum application to say that he should send them two photographs and requesting information which he returned, and heard nothing more. They wrote agin in the summer 2012 with the same details but he has ignored it as he had already sent the information.

He now wants to apply for ILR... how would he go about this given points 1 & 2, and would he apply as his real name or alternative?

Any advice is most welcome as he really is desperate to be in the UK legally. He has good character, never tarnished his name here and speaks amazing english.

What can he do?

Your friend needs an experienced lawyer. You shouldn't even begin to try to help him.

Hi Victoria,

He tried with a solicitor once and didnt get much help so i thought i'd ask here if there was any advice and then he could get representation from here. Is there hope that there is a legislation that could cover him or is there no hope other than him going home?

There isn't enough info here to make a judgement. He needs to see a solicitor himself. It's likely to be very hard.
