Apply on the basis of family life or private life in the UK

Use this online application as an alternative to the FLR(M) and FLR(FP) paper forms.

Apply to remain in the UK as the family member or partner (for example, spouse) of a:

  • British citizen
  • person settled in the UK
  • person who has refugee leave or humanitarian protection in the UK

You can also use this form to apply on the basis of private life in the UK.

You can add some family members (‘dependants’) to your application. For example, if you are applying as a partner with two children, you can all apply on the same application.

You cannot use this form to apply for settlement (also known as ‘indefinite leave to remain’).

You cannot use this online application if you are applying with a fee waiver. Fee waiver applicants must complete the paper form and fee waiver application.

By making this application you and each dependent included in this form are making a human rights claim under the European Convention on Human Rights.
