We have been instructed by a client who has been resident in the UK for almost 30 years before we met her. We made an application for her to be granted two and a half years leave to remain on the basis of her long residence in the UK under private life, paragraph 276ADE. The application was successful and then we made an application to extend that leave. We submitted that notwithstanding a deportation order which was revoked in 1990 and her inability to obtain a valid passport, she still met the requirements under the Rules. She now has a valid passport and is in full time employment.
