Re: URGENT- Child`s First British Passport & DNA Test

Who is considered as the child’s Father for the purpose of the BNA 1981 is firstly the person to whom the Mother was married to at the time of the child’s birth, therefore a DNA test is not required. Yes you pay for the passport when you apply.

Re: Child under 18: Can I apply for daughter British citizenship without ILR ?

New routes for a child to become British The Home Office changed their policy on 18 July 2022 to add further discretionary routes for a child to register as British.

Re: Route to Citizenship - Spouse of British Citizen

An adult cannot naturalise unless they’re free from immigration time restrictions - e.g., they have ILR. Being married/CP to a British citizen simply means you can naturalise earlier e.g., no need to be free from immigration time restrictions for 12 months (just be free from immigration time restric...

Re: Settled Status valid after citizenship - for how long?

The status of your settlement simply ceases to exist once you acquire British citizenship, regardless of the fact you may access it digitally. The current requirement to return BRPs post citizenship acquisition will obviously stop circa end of 2024 when BRPs are phased out (or that’s the plan at lea...

Re: Register child under 18 as British citizen (form MN1) + fee waiver

You just state it as one parent receiving the benefits, for a number of benefits there is a main/lead claimant, that’s the case for legacy means tested benefits (but for tax credits). As long as the sum total is correct for the family unit, that should be ok.

Thanks, this list says, director, manager or personnel officer of a VAT-registered company, so my understanding is that if someone job title has " manager " word he/ she should be ok to confirm identity.

Re: Debt relief order and naturalisation

A clear intention not to pay debts can be an issue for the Good character requirement. A DRO is a form of insolvency so I’d certainly suggest waiting until the 12 month moratorium period has lapsed. Post again here when that’s the case and we can check the guidance at that point.
