I am in desperate need of advice. I am American and have lived here in the UK with my British husband for the last 2 years. It is coming close to time for me to apply for my permanent residency and I am facing a bit of a problem. I do not receive public funds, however my husband had and accident at work last year which has prevented him from going back to work. As a result he is living on public funds. He is on his 3rd operation now to help with the injuries that were caused by the accident. I have not been able to go to work as I have had to care for him in between operations and also care for our daughter. My question is, do you think they will still grant me leave to remain even though I am not working and my spouse is having to live on public funds?
