From Discretionary Leave to Remain to Indefinite Leave to Remain

10th May 2017

My wife was refused asylum but granted Discretionary Leave to Remain in 2011 due to her marriage to a UK citizen in 2005 and having a 10 year old British citizen daughter. Her current visa expires June 2017 can she now apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain having lived here since 2011?

    It seems she was granted Discretonary Leave under the old Rules and will be completing 6 years with her current leave. She is eligible to apply for ILR subject to meeting the other requirements such as Knowledge of English Language and Life in the UK Test.
