Re: Current speeding ticket

Re: No public funds and carers allowance

Assuming your husband is British, there is an argument that you can claim Carer’s Allowance, there is a case at the Upper Tribunal at the moment on this matter. I’ll let you know the outcome.

Then that should be ok. If one partner is subject to immigration control and other is british then British can claim UC as long as tenancy agreement is on his name ?

Insofar as the amount of public funds are not increased because of the presence of a person who is subject to immigration control e.g. your wife, then the claim should be ok.

You should not have a joint tenancy if one of you is subject to immigration control. Do you have children? Have you claimed council tax reduction?

He is 3 years and 2 months old As the child is under 10 they don’t have to meet the good character requirement for citizenship so being an overstayer should not affect their application assuming child born in the UK.

Re: Good character requirement- declaring criminal convictions/cautions

As the caution was more than 10 years ago I’d have expected a successful decision unless the caution was for an offence which was aggravating in the eyes of the HO. However, it’s nice for you to let others know and reassure people that the HO is following their guidance. So thank you.
