You are overthinking this process. Your British passport and naturalisation cert will be issued in the name of YOUR passport. Parents names are also NOT included in British passports.
Thank you. You're right, I am over-thinking; years of dealing with the HO made it difficult not to worry about the details. :)

No you can't. The appointment booking is part of the process at the end of the application.

Unemployment is not an issue for naturalisation - this is all about residency - you will need to list your self-employment and need to provide the appropriate documents (i.e. tax returns). For the period of unemployment you need to provide alternative proof of residency, such as council tax bills, HMRC correspondence, Pension, Child Benefit, etc.
This is just my opinion as a member of this forum and does not constitute immigration advice.

Outstanding taxes are not an issue as long as you comply with all arrangements, such as payment plans. If you can't document periods of your self-employment you can still use alternative documents as already mentioned.

Hello everyone,
I do application in paper form and I have a few questions. I would appreciate, if you can help me please.
I will use my PR so in 1.1 Give any reference numbers used in your immigration do I need to put Case ID nr? Tha it is all found on the letter.
1.3 Should I leave it blank? I will need to fill 2.4 because I am EEA with PR and they ask for the date there as well.
1.12 Name of the city contains polish letter so I guess I should use only english letter am I right?
1.49 Details of your employment I am PAYE now but I was sole trader two years ago and closed business, so should I put my UTR in Tax reference number?
2.3 Obviously main home is England, should I put it then?
6.1 I have never been issued biometrics in the UK so I say no and in 6.17 I confirm that I wish to register my biometric information. Will they send me letter once they receive my application and say where should I to have it done?
7.10 It says Although I do not meet all of the statuory requirements for naturalisation... Well I believe I do meet all requirements so should I not tick that?
When it comes to the referees section should they sign it with their full name and surname or it can be their usual signature which you do not know what what is written really. Last thing is that, I would have one referee signing this month and another in October so the date would be different is that alright?

Thank you all in advance for help I really need answers for all the questions above.

You can't apply using the paper form. You must apply using the online form.

Are you sure? It says:
'You can also use this paper form if you live elsewhere and want to apply by post. You will need to submit your documents with your application.

Most people who live in the UK and apply online are able to keep their documents while their application is processed.'

I thought I can but the difference is that I can keep my documents when applying online. I checked the date of publishing it. Published 12 April 2019 Last updated 26 June 2019 — see all updates From:

The paper form is if you live outside of England, Wales, Scotland and N Ireland, as it clearly states.

Hi
I am applying for naturalisation next month and have 3 questions if anyone could please help.

1. I would like to check for the 'Immigration details' section where it asks 'Have you made any previous UK immigration applications in the UK or aboard'? What does this really mena? Does that need to include Tier 2 visa details and Tier 4 before I had my ILR from 2018?

2. If i've run out of space in the 'Trips outside the UK section' where's best to insert this information'?

3. Lastly one of my referees is in Switzerland (but British) would that be an issue?

Many thanks

1. ALL visa applications you have made as the question asks.

2. Excel schedule and upload with documents.

3. No as long as they meet the requirements.
