You can apply for renewal of your discretionary leave to remain which was granted outside the Immigration Rules based on exceptional compelling and compassionate circumstances of the applicant. For the application for renewal of Discretionary Leave to Remain to succeed, there should be no adverse change in the circumstances of the applicant at the time of making an application for renewal of the Discretionary Leave. An application for renewal of Discretionary Leave to Remain is made using application form FLR (HRO) if the application is being made outside the Rules. However, if the circumstances of the applicant have changed in such a way that the requirements of paragraph 276ADE or Appendix FM of the Immigration Rules can be satisfied, it would be better to make an application under the Immigration Rules rather than outside the rules.
