British Citizenship application for main applicant and family members

Post by ntt05r » Mon Jan 28, 2019 5:31 pm

Hi all,

This summer I will have completed 12 months of ILR and hence be eligible to apply for BC. My wife and child will only have completed 5 months of ILR at that point so I'd like to ask forum members which the following is the right route for our BC applications:-

Option A: all of us apply for BC at the same time in one application or

Option B: I apply for BC first. Once I have BC then my wife and child can apply.

Option C: I apply when my 12 months comes, they apply when their 12 months comes.

Appreciate if you can point out the right immigration rules applying here or let me know if there have been any sucessful cases for any of the options.

Option C: I apply when my 12 months comes, they apply when their 12 months comes.

Please don't send me PMs asking for immigration advice on posts that are on the open forum. If I haven't responded there, it's because I don't have the answer. I'm a moderator, not a legal professional.

Thank you Casa.

We barely get out of the UK so absence is not an issue. KOLL was met when we applied for ILR so not a problem.

At first I'd thought Option C was the only option. Suppose Option A has the risk of the main applicant not being sucessful and could result in the whole family fails. Agreed Option B is the way forward.

They don't qualify for Option A. Only if they had 12 months on ILR would you all be able to apply at the same time.

Option B is the only one.
