If you have been partner of British citizen or a settled person who has died recently, you can apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) as a bereaved partner. A fiancé(e) or proposed civil partner is considered as bereaved partner for the purpose of this application. That means if you have spouse or civil partner or in a relationship which was akin to marriage, you will be eligible to apply under this route of Appendix FM. This application must be made when you are in the UK and you can make this application, at any time of your current leave. For example, if you have just arrived at the UK as partner of a British citizen or a settled person, you will be eligible to apply upon death of your partner. You do not need to take Life in the UK test or pass in English language test.
If your application is refused on the ground of conviction under S-ILR.1.5 or S-ILR.1.6, you will be granted further 30 months leave to remain and after elapse of prescribed time limit, you will be eligible to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain. If you are still within the prescribed time limit after the conviction, you will continue to apply for leave to remain as bereaved partner.
Application fee for ILR under Bereaved Partner route is same as other ILR application which is currently £2389. If you have any child who are also on leave to remain, they can also be included in the application.
