Re: Child 3 possible nationality and applications

Assuming your partner worked for 5 continuous years before 2012 (and registered for WRS if was employed), then the children are British from birth. Regardless if you apply for a passport. I'm not familiar with China or Lithuania nationality laws, but I would imagine both country would see them as ci...

Re: Spouse Naturalisation Application 3 years rule

Your date of marriage is irrelevant.

3 years of residence & ILR (and being married to BC). That's all.

Re: Nat. application - proof of residence for EEA3/EEA4 perm

You will need to provide proof for the 5 years prior to the application. Having PR doesn't prove anything as the residence requirements for PR are different than for naturalisation (for example you can obtain PR with 6 months of absence every year). Having said that, for naturalisation a passport is...

Re: British Passport vs Indian passport for a new born baby

Your child is Indian and should need a valid visa if he travels abroad (and wants to return to the UK). Your child can apply to become British and lose his Indian citizenship.

It is your decision what to do.

Re: Citizenship after 5 years Surrinder Singh

The rules for PR (upto 6 months absence) and naturalisation are different. As you are married to BC, the residential requirements for you (when you apply after 5 years) would be:
* less than 270 days in the 3 years before the application.
* less than 90 days in the 1 year before the application.

Re: EEA PR Treaty rights GAP!

For the first gap (9days). I won't even bother declaring the period as job seeker. Just put the two jobs. Such a small gap won't be an issue. For the second gap - I didn't really understand how long you have been a job seeker. When did you leave the second job. For small gaps, the HO won't make a fu...

Re: Can EEA Child obtain British Passport

It would depend on the parent status not the child. Once the parent obtain PR status (5 continuous years of treaty rights), the UK born child can register using form MN1.

Re: EEA PR after I have left the UK

The 6 months absence refers to the 5 years. Once PR is obtained (automatically), it is only lost after an absence of 2 years. For the application you will need to show 5 continuous years of treaty rights and that you have not been away for the UK for more than 2 years (if those 5 years are in the pa...

This would mean that if you have an RC issued by another EU country you won't need a Family Permit. For example if you live in France as a family member of a German citizen and you hold a RC issued under the EU regulations, you won't need FP. If you live outside the EU, this won't change things.

Re: Has to wait 1 year after getting PR for British Citizens

You need to wait 1 year from obtaining PR status not from obtaining the certificate (although waiting for 1 year after the certificate will cut the paperwork required). See Q1, Q5 in the FAQ (link below).
