Default SPONSORING DEPENDENT WHO DID NOT HAVE MEDICAL

I am a permenent resident and have been since 2005.
I have a 19 year old son living in the UK.
At that time it was not appropriate for various reasons to have him undergo a medical and I had to sign an affadavit stating I could never sponsor him.
He may become homeless in the UK and I am wondering if under such circumstances I may be able to plea to the better nature of CIC to sponsor him.
He has no medical complaint it was purely for family issues the medical wasn't done.

Any thoughts or loopholes?

Thanks

You signed and that will be it - sorry. You should consult a lawyer skilled in immigration advocacy to see what might work in your case.

Might your son be eligible for BUNAC this would allow him to work for a year with no need for you to sponsor or support in any way. He could then hopefully find a job and come as a skilled worker on his own merits.

Hope you can get something sorted

Aha sorry didn't get to that thread before posting. There is also the study permit route if your son is thinking about Uni but the fees could be steep for a foreign student.

Cheers
