According to paragraph 276ADE of the Immigration Regulations, private life applications are filed on the basis of private lives formed in the UK by the applicants.
Private Life Applications Under Paragraph 276ADE Of Immigration Rules
According to paragraph 276ADE of the Immigration Rules, private life applications are filed on the basis of private lives formed in the UK by the applicants. According to Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (EHR), private life applications are considered human rights applications. If such applications are denied, there is typically an in-country right of appeal against the denial of a human rights claim—unless the claim is deemed manifestly unfounded by the Home Office UKVI.
Private life applications under paragraph 276ADE may only be submitted from within the UK; applications from outside the UK are not permitted. The private life route is a 10-year course, as well. For those who choose to rely on their personal lives to stay in the UK, there is no 5-year path to settlement.
The following are the several applications that a person may submit in accordance with paragraph 276ADE of the Immigration Rules depending on his or her private life in the UK.
20 Years Long Residence Applications
In accordance with Section 276ADE of the Immigration Rules, applications for a 20-year stay are made based on the applicant’s private life in the UK. A person who has lived in the UK for 20 years straight is eligible to apply for a 30-month limited stay under paragraph 276ADE of the Immigration Rules.
In 2012, the previous 14-year residence category was replaced by the 20-year residence category.

7 Years Child Residence Route
For a child who has continuously resided in the UK for 7 years while the child is under the age of 18, the 7-year child residency route is available.
A youngster who has been in the UK for seven years straight may request permission to stay on the grounds of their private lives. According to paragraph 276ADE(1)(iv), the applicant must be younger than 18 years old, have resided continuously in the UK for at least 7 years (excluding any time spent in prison), and it cannot be expected that the child will leave the country.
Along with the child who has resided in the UK for seven consecutive years, the child’s parents and siblings may also apply for leave to remain. The primary foundation for such an application is the child’s private life and the child’s best interests as defined by Section 55 of the Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Act of 2009.

Applications On The Basis Of Spending Half Of Life Continuously In The UK As A Person Aged 18 to 24
If you are over 18 but under 25 and have lived in the UK continuously for half of your life, you may be eligible to apply for a visa that will allow you to stay. Only candidates who entered the UK before turning 12 and a half can be granted leave to remain based on having lived half of their lives in the country. Only individuals under the age of 25 may submit an application under this category. The eligibility requirements for an initial application will no longer be met once the applicant turns 25.

Application On The Basis Of Very Significant
If you are over 18 and can demonstrate that there are significant barriers to your integration into the society of your home country, you may apply for leave to stay in the UK. If a person over the age of 18 and who has resided continuously in the UK for less than 20 years can demonstrate that leaving the UK would present very significant obstacles to his integration into the country, he may apply for leave to remain based on his private life in the UK.
A ‘very significant obstacle to integration’ means something which would prevent or seriously inhibit the applicant from integrating into the country of return.
