Re: Leaving 2nd job, how do i contact the Home Office

From what I understand, you only need to inform them of adverse or material changes, e.g. if you are under investigation for a crime or declared bankrupt (adverse) or (post) address change (material change). As you applied for British Citizenship you almost certainly have Indefinite Leave to Remain ...

Re: Mistake on Document Certifying Permanent Residence

I can probably alleviate some of your stress. My name goes something like: Jacob-Rees Mogg, however my DCPR came out as "Jacob Rees Mogg." I, like you, did not realise until much later that this error had been made. The Home Office gives contrary advice because for BRPs there are much stricter rules...

Re: Driving in UK on EU licence after no deal

I don't suggest you do this, but if you were to temporarily lose possession of your EU licence, you can 'exchange' your licence without giving up your lost licence. If you then find your licence again, you will have 2. This actually happened to me, though in my case it was a proper accident (someone...

Re: Married to BC, has EU settled status, no CSI

I think you are theoretically correct, the fact they do not ask for any proof about CSI shows that they will not check nor is in the casework guidance. Also, I think if this were challenged in court the Home Office would lose. It would also cause a widespread panic and a scandal bigger than Windrush...

Sounds reasonable course of action to me. If you do not, you might get into trouble and it might be seen as 'deception' leading to a 10 year ban.

Re: Am I British or British by descent

I think you are Otherwise than by Descent (emphasis added): Registration under section 3(1) will give British citizenship by descent if the father or the mother was a British citizen at the time of the child’s birth. In all other cases registration gives British citizenship otherwise than by descent.

Re: Married to BC, has EU settled status, no CSI

Further to @alterhase58 point, and to my (limited) understanding, not having CSI in certain situations will prevent obtaining PR as you are not 'exercising treaty rights,' however it does not make the residence itself unlawful.

In regards to Proof of English test, the form says you can satisfy it by: I met the knowledge of language and life requirement to qualify for settlement on or after 28th October 2013.
