Re: March 2015 Naturalization application timeline

Submitting Original is a MUST. Usually, when NCS copies the certificate, gives you the copy and keeps the original. Easy mistake to make is to flip it around [keep copy and give back original]!!

Send that in and you will be fine. Good luck

Re: March 2015 Naturalization application timeline

Get in touch with your local council. They should be able to advise [hope the mail isnt lost and you've missed it] or book the date. There should be a number on the letter from HO.

Fingers cross for you.

sorry for a daft one here but can applications be tracked online before 3 weeks? PO where I used check and send told me that it could only be tracked online once 3 weeks have elapsed?

Re: Minor offence - not wearing seatbelt

IMHO, this would not cause a problem, but DO DECLARE IT on the form.

You dont smoke much do you? :P

OP - On a serious note, do declare it on additional info box - no harm, or at least they cant blame you for not disclosing!

Re: Help- Unsuccessful application - good character

I am sorry to hear about your application being unsuccessful. Go to local police station and request the PNC/ACRO report, I think it costs a tenner. Basis disclosure reports dont always show everything and you can not request your own full disclosure AFAIK. Who knows what the outcome would of been h...

Re: Police caution

caution is not a conviction. You have nothing to worry about - that said, it would of been better if you had included that in additional info but just because you havent, you wont be refused.. breathe and live normally! Wrong advice. For naturalisation you must declare all cautions and convictions....

Now, whatever case is going on in the court, is between the two insurance companies to own up to the liability. Of course, they would both blame another. Also, sinc...
