Re: CHILD TAX CREDIT & SPOUSE VISA EXTENSION

Although Universal Credit will be fully rolled out in jobcentres by September 2018, moving people on existing benefits to the new system will only begin in July 2019 and be finished by March 2022. That no doubt explains why the commercial radio stations are currently full of adverts, imploring peop...

Re: CHILD TAX CREDIT & SPOUSE VISA EXTENSION

Although Universal Credit is now within the definition of Public Funds, those all important paragraphs 6A to 6C remain unchanged. To save you digging them out, here they are :- 6A. For the purpose of these Rules, a person (P) is not to be regarded as having (or potentially having) recourse to public...

Re: Child Benefit for Child on Family Settlement VISA

jamshaid you need to appreciate that Child Benefit is never claimed by the child!

It is claimed by an adult and if that adult has ILR, for example, claiming the Child Benefit is not a problem.

Re: Maternity Allowance

Maternity Allowance is not within the definition of Public Funds, so no harm in claiming that.

Re: Naturalisation after death of British citizen spouse

It is as simple as this. The question is, are you married to a British Citzen? The answer, very unfortunately, is no.

Accordingly the qualifying period is five years, and you need to have had your ILR for at least one year.

Re: Naturalisation after death of British citizen spouse

Hi, time outside the UK not excessive. So I think you should plan to submit your application shortly after the 1st anniversary of the grant of your ILR on 12.10.16. Given you were outside the UK "05 Dec 2012 to 22 Feb 2013 ", certainly do not submit the application during the period "05 Dec 2017 to ...

Re: Naturalisation after death of British citizen spouse

Sorry to hear about your loss. But it follows that you are no longer married to a British Citizen, and accordingly you need to have held ILR for at least one year before making your Naturalisation application. When you make your Naturalisation application, do make sure that you pass all the other ru...

The new section now exists!

Any problems? Such as lack of rights as a Moderator, do let me know.

I suspect that a number of existing topics should now be moved into the new section.

Re: Naturalisation with ILR based on DV

It is a great shame that UKBA cannot actually give correct guidance. The booklet correctly talks about a "qualifying period" but incorrectly interprets the legislation concerning that.

If the husband will cooperate (so that she can apply as a spouse), it will require proof of 3 years residency in UK. 3 years residency? Not quite right, but it might be academic in this case.

Maistone252, you are right, neither Malaysia nor Singapore has a Social Security agreement with the UK.
