i didn't want to share my story with anyone on this forum after what happened last time and some dearly beloved idiots start wishing me go to prison for my driving offence and also wishing my application get refused and the worst part the moderator actually blocked me instead of blocking them, any way i'm so happy that i couldn't not sharing my story with other good people in here.
i had an appointment on 30 of Apr at NCS to send my naturalization application, i have confirmed my driving offence on my application as a result the lady in NCS said that she has to contact HO to confirm that if i can apply, they told her over the phone that i have to wait 5 years before apply, and if i apply now i will be refused.
i did not send my application and contacted my solicitor who was assuring me that i will be fine with my offence,
he has sent my application on 7/May
money withdrawn 12/May
got the confirmation of receipt of application on 18/May
i have called HO on 4/Jun and they told me the decision was made and it will take 10 working days to receive the decision.
today 8/Jun my solicitor called me and said that he has received my approval and can go for my ceremony by next week.
against every odds and everyone telling me i will fail and waist my money i have trusted my solicitor and thank god he was right and he proved everyone wrong, i am now british and will go for my ceremony next week and apply for my passport.
thanks to those who has gave me comfort with their words and wished me luck, good bless you all and hope you all get your citizenship soon
