Ordinarily the Home Office usually give people discretionary leave to remain with no recourse to public funds. However there is a process if changing this condition.
We have represented clients in a similar situation. In one case, our client has a British child. She is the sole carer of the child. Her asylum was refused. She has never worked in UK and did not have any other source of income. We made an application for her under Appendix FM and she was given discretionary leave to remain with no recourse to public funds. We made another application so that she can get public funds and we received a new decision allowing her to receive public funds.
