Hi all, I am a bit confused about what to do. My wife has overstayed her visiting visa by 8 years. We have two kids aged 7 and 5.

I am a settled person and our kids are all registerd as British. I just want her to sort out her papers.
I know there are a lot of changes about overstayers. But how do we go about it and will she face any problems if she goes back to her home country to apply.

Response kindly needed.

Seek legal advise, i think application for LTR within the new rule is possible

Thanks for your answer. Please I cannot afford legal advice but I can do som in depth research if directed to the appropriate rules.
Are you referring to the new family migration route, I thought it might be better and faster if she could go back to her home country and sort it out.
Thanks

To be honest am not formally qualified to advise you but in my opinion application within the UK is possible ,a friend was granted 3yrs ago similar to your case ,getting a good solicitor may save you the time and the. stress.Hope this helps.

The rules are tougher now. An initial consultation with a legal advisor to decide the best option shouldn't cost a great deal. We have advisors on the forum who could give you an idea of the cost if you email them.

If you can afford the cost of a flight to her country plus a visa, you can afford a £100 consultation fee that may reduce the final cost.
