If you are already in the UK with leave to enter or remain as a parent of a child who is British or settled in the UK, you can apply for renewal of your leave to remain. The application for renewal of leave to remain as a parent under 10 years route is made using application form FLR (FP).

To qualify for extension of stay as a parent of a British or settled child under 10 years route, you should meet the following requirements:

  • You should not be in relationship with the other parent of the child and therefore should be ineligible to apply for leave to remain as a partner;
  • Your British or settled child must be in the UK and must be under the age of 18 years. If the child has turned over 18 but was under the age of 18 at the time of the initial application, the child must be unmarried, must  not be leading an independent life and must be financially dependant on the applicant and/or the other parent of the child;
  • You should either have sole responsibility for the child or have in person contact with the child (access to the child);
  • You should have been playing an active role in the upbringing of the child and should demonstrate intention to continue place such role in the life of the child.

As a result of the successful application for renewal of parent visa, the applicant will be granted further leave to remain for 30 months under the parent route (10 years route).
