Leave to Remain granted after 20 years of continuous residence

A remarkable result for our leading immigration lawyer Oksana Demyanchuk and her team. They successfully handled an application under paragraph 276ADE (1) (iii) of the Immigration Rules. The client was granted Leave to remain. 

This Paragraph allows those who have resided in the UK for a period of 20 years continuously to receive  leave in the UK. However, the difficulty for many Applicants is one of evidence. 

 Due to the meticulous and thorough work of Oksana Demyanchuk and her team, this was not an issue for a client of Sterling Law. Home Office approved the application at the first instances.

The Home Office granted leave to remain to the client noting that “we are satisfied that you meet the requirements of paragraphs 276ADE (1) of these Rules”. 

Oksana and her team demonstrated that the Applicant had been in the UK for a period of 20 years continuously. They also evidenced that the Applicant would face very significant obstacles to their integration into their home country. 

This was a fantastic result for Oksana Demyanchuk and her team! More importantly, after 20 years of uncertainty the client now has leave to remain in the UK.

Should you have any questions regarding applications under paragraph 276ADE of the Immigration Rules, or would like a free assessment of you particular personal circumstances, please do not hesitate to contact us.
