Allow victims of domestic abuse to apply for ILR from outside the UK

Petition Details

The Government must take action to tackle the problem of transnational marriage abandonment, by allowing victims of domestic abuse to apply for ILR from outside the UK.

Additional Information

Unfortunately, one of the requirements to be granted indefinite leave to remain as a victim of domestic abuse is to be in the UK at the time of the application. This means that victims of transnational marriage abandonment, even if they have been recognized as victims of domestic abuse, cannot make use of these provisions. The Immigration rules must protect stranded spouses.
