I need expert's advise for claiming child benefits.
I recently got ILR on 10 years route which was switching from tier-1(G).
My son is granted FLR(FP) with no recourse to public funds and letter stating that sponsor is not eligible to claim public funds on children behalf.
My son was not born in UK and always remained on dependent visas with no recourse to public funds.
My wife is also on FLR(FP) visa with no recourse to public funds.
Could Experts please clarify
1)whether I can claim child benefits with out breaking law?(Please provide UKVI official reference or judgement/case law)
2)Whether my son will have any problems with regard to next visa extension or ILR application?
3) Whether I will face any problems with regard to my Naturalization?
I'll be very grateful.

1) yes, you can claim child benefit. And clearly mention in form that he is restricted to Public fund. Therefore, Child benefit letter will issue in your name only because its you who claim not the child.
2). There shall not be any issue/problem in his extension/ILR
3). Neither you will have any problem in your Naturalization.
