Use this form if you are in the UK on a temporary visa as a partner, your relationship has broken down because of domestic violence and you have no money to support yourself.
You can apply to claim public funds (benefits) for up to 3 months while UK Visas and Immigration considers your application to settle in the UK.
You can send this form as soon as your relationship breaks down and you need money, but you must then also complete form SET(DV) to apply to settle in the UK.
