The elderly dependent parents and other relatives of a British Citizen or settled person can submit human rights application for leave to remain outside the Immigration Rules if they can establish that they are dependent on their UK sponsor beyond normal emotional ties and further that requiring them to leave the UK will be disproportionate interference in their private and family life.

The UK courts have held that there is family life established between eldelry parents and dependent relatives if they are dependent on their British or settled sponsor beyond normal emotional ties. As there is no specific provision within Appendix FM to the Immigration Rules for an in-country application by elderly dependent parents or relatives, such application can only be made outside the rules based on family life established between the applicants and their sponsor.Dependence beyond normal emotional ties can only be established where the applicant is physically dependent on the sponsor due to the applicant's age, illness or disability. The factors such as mental health issues of the applicant and need for emotional support from the UK sponsor are crucial for succeeding in such applications.

As a result of success application, the applicants will be granted Discretionary Leave to Remain (DLR) outside the Rules for 30 months under 10 years Discretionary Leave route.
