ILR REFUSED.. Can I apply Leav2Remain

  • Hi
    Happy to find this great site.

    Please advice me for my problem.
    I came on spousal visa sponsored by wife British Citizen. But couldn't continue. Domestic violence against me led to separate. But not yet divorced.

    I made ILR application on the basis of DV. So home office gave 3 months visa cancelling spouse visa so that I am getting benefits. But ILR was refused.
    My question is ,
    As we not divorced and wife need to live with me now ,
    Can Wife sponsor me to get leave to remain visa again from inside UK ?
    Now my special visa going to expire in weeks time.
    Please help.. Ian very much worried as I'm 55 years old now.
    Thanks in advance.

    Dear VDV,

    I am sorry for the delay in responding to your query, as I realise you have an urgent timescale here. You cannot usually switch from the temporary DDV visa back to a spouse visa, however this may be possible in exceptional circumstances. If you would like to send us through the refusal notice we will be able to advise fully on the options open to you.
