Re: Returning BRP Card after Citizenship Ceremony

Re: Professional referee

The referee needs to have known you for at least three years so he would not qualify for that reason.

Citizenship ceremony

Hi guys, I know you need to provide ID when you go to the citizenship ceremony. Would my old BIometric residence permit (ILR) count as suitable ID? I'm trying to renew my US passport to change my name to married name ASAP and would like to send it off now but I have no date for the ceremony yet. I w...

Nope DH and I are both living off of savings (both MSc students at the moment). Some savings are in the savings account and about £6k in the one that I have statements for. ...

If that's all you have and nothing in your name, that's not enough evidence. Your application may not succeed in which case she'd have to apply for flr(m) and then apply for ILR when 2years worth of evidence is gathered.

Schools and GP surgeries are not well versed in immigration rules. They are also not required to be. You are expected to know the rules and follow them and being ignorant is no excuse.

As Luca said above, we need the actual refusal statement.

Why did she deny that you financially help her? That could be construed as deception.
