Reading this made my hopes of becoming a British Citizen vanish.

I have 6 points for driving without insurance (driving my wifes car with what I thought was comprehensive insurance, turns out on my renewal I got put to 3rd party.. I'm an idiot for not checking) I appealed in February and got a 6 month driving ban (I had 2 other speeding offences, I drive quite a lot on motorways)

I have my life in the UK test on Friday, what chances do I have to get approved?


Thanks

EU!

I doubt your hopes have vanished. Unless they change the rules radically in the next few years, you will likely just have to wait 3 years, without anymore 'motorway' offenses, until this is spent and then apply.

Hi,

Thanks a lot for your reply. I don't have any CCJS at all I am in an arrangements with my lenders and regularly making the agreed payments in fact I've cleared one of my CC payment in full but the lender has replied to me that the default will stay as settled on my Credit file for 6 years which just sounds so ridiculous to me by all means, even when I had paid them back in full this will still haunts me for 6 years which is not fair.

Thanks God.I am not worried about any sort of Criminal record stuffs as it doesn't really applied to me.

I've also collected enough knowledge regarding the points thing thanks to all the members of this group but now this thing is really worrying me as well having financial defaults on my Credit file.

I think I know at least 10000000 of British people who are having financial difficulties in their lives but I think they are just deliberately making it harder for immigrants that's all I can say. and if they are refusing nationality application on the basis of financial defaults the government should be taken to the courts for their decision. no one would like to drop his/her self in those kind of matters.

Any more use full replies.

Amber special request from you if you can reply to my query or any other Gurus or any respected members of the board.

I believe HO does't do credit checks. Even the guidance says that application will not be refused on the basis of poor financial matters unless the applicant has been intentionally reckless.

Hi,

Many thanks for your kind reply. But can you please define what do you exactly mean by reckless here what do you class has reckless ?

Any one can go in to financial difficulties no matter how careful you are I've lost nearly 20 grand in my business which is just classed as a business loss which is a normal thing so I don't really get this point for my self being reckless ?

Any more replies from the gurus please .

Amber please reply.

Many thanks.

I just quoted guideline. I assume that by reckless they mean that someone piled up debt knowing that they won't be able to pay back.

Hi,

Has any one in a similar situation to mine.

I am still a bit confused as well.

On my driving license counter part it says 3 different dates so which date do I have to take in to consideration to wait for before I can apply for my British Nationality.

The dates are

Date of Offence 13 01 2013

Date of Conviction 17 04 2013

Sentenced 14 10 2013


Also can any one from this provide me an email address on which UKVI replies to personal queries rather than a standard reply.

Many thanks.

Waiting for your useful replies.

Smam

I got a good news when I checked with my solicitors. They said you don't need to wait 5 years for non custodial sentence. You have to wait only 3 years since the rules changed for applying for citizenship. So you can apply now. My 3 years was complete last September. May be I was a bit late to check with my solicitors since I was travelling. I just checked with them last week.

congratulations!! I am really please that you persevered and finally received your citizenship.

I am thinking of applying for the citizenship but not sure at the moment. Could you please check my situation in the following post and let me know what you think (I know it is completely different than yours) , in terms of your experience with lawyers and Home office? I would be grateful for any guidance. Thanks in advance!

Hi All,

By the Grace of Great Almighty Allah I have successfully received an approval for my British Naturalisation yesterday.

Finally a journey came to an end after 15 years.

When you read through this thread completely I had every thing happened to me. An accident, 6 points no my driving license, financial default, police arrest records, numerous parking ticket as I was in the hospital and parked my car in the hospital parking for 11 days.


The summary and the lesson I would like to give here for all those who really gets worried about their selves is just have strong faith on Almighty Allah and never loose hope. I believe in the fact that when Allah brings someone to the edge only two things will happen if you fall from that edge either Allah will help you to fly or will save you from falling down.

Good luck to everyone who are still waiting for their approvals.
