You are right that by law you have to return the mother’s BRP after naturalisation. However, I will be writing to HO for the permission to let us retain the mother’s BRP for child’s future sake. I will update this thread when I do so in a couple of months. I would still not return the mother’s ILR even if I risk a fine. I am quite hopeful HO will give permission as per the situation. No one has ever reported such a fine anyways.mickster wrote: ↑Wed Apr 10, 2019 12:24 pmtier11417 wrote: ↑Wed Apr 10, 2019 12:10 pmBecause the baby is born when mother had ILR and the claim to baby’s British Nationality is Mother’s ILR not Naturalisation Certificate or British Passport.mickster wrote: ↑Wed Apr 10, 2019 11:43 am
Im confused, why will you need mothers ILR BRP in 10-15 years time when the mother will have a British passport or naturalisation certificate by then?

apologies but still struggling to understand ... and am asking because i am in the exact same situation ... will my baby have to prove in 10-15 years time why they got a UK passport at the time of birth (2019) and how they qualified for it and why they are still british? surely the HO would have these details if they look at previous applications and wouldnt that be a simple case of renewing the passports rather than starting a full new case of citizenship? surely keeping a BRP (which the HO ask for after naturalisation) is not the right way ... or is it and with it we are risking fines?
Please read vinny’s comment above and sticky note for more clarification.
Thank you - definitely going to follow the same ... why risk a childs future nationality status
