Re: UK Citizenship advice for my EU husband with EU Settled status

I know of at least one person (friend) - possibly more but I have not asked specifically - who was able to obtain settled status under the Settlement Scheme despite spending only 1y exercising treaty rights through employment (exempt from CSI) and 4y as a student without CSI. What do you think you ...

Re: what happens next after the EEA family permit is granted?

The application can be basically done a couple of days after she arrives to UK. She need to prove one day of residency with a bill, so make sure you include her into water/electricity bill AND the bill is issued a couple of days after she crossed the UK border Doesn't this mean a very tight time sc...

Re: British Passport : Married name or Maiden name?

And they shouldn't issue you one in your maiden name!

An embassy letter saying you can't change your name is your best hope. Remember, British citizens don't have a right to a passport. If we want to re-enter the UK, we just have to avoid the ports.

Re: UK Citizenship advice for my EU husband with EU Settled status

In the Guidance for Caseworkers making decisions on naturalisation by discretion, there is a phrase that says something along the lines "EU citizens are not considered to be in breach of immigration law". Based on that phrasing, I don't think being in breach of immigration law applies to EU citizen...

There's also been at least one tribunal or court ruling that time before counts towards the qualification for PR. Can you share details? Yes! The judgement is recorded at SSHD v.

Re: UK Citizenship advice for my EU husband with EU Settled status

Irrelevant in his case. He has got settled status under the new EU settlement scheme. The Scheme allows students and unemployed but self sufficient people to get the equivalent of PR without sickness insurance. Does settled status retrospectively change whether one was 'in breach of the immigration...

5 years after the establishment of my relationship with my EU sponsor (in my case, the date my EEA card was issued), regardless of any cohabitation time before that, and regardless how long I have been in the UK. Did they use the phrase "establishment of relationship"? That can be taken several way...

2. I have spent quite a lot of time outside the UK since April 2018 - will this affect my application for settled status?
If you have retained PR, this will not be a problem in law. You may have to find evidence that you have not lost PR by a 2-year absence.

Re: BRP CARDS OR SETTLED STATUS.

Thanks very much for your reply. So I will apply for the PR then settled status after that. They do not qualify for registration because they were born after I became British Citizen and that, they are deriving their status through my wife (their step mother) who is EEA citizen. If you're not inter...

Re: BRP CARDS OR SETTLED STATUS.

I am wondering should I apply for PR for them or Settle status? I know with PR, they will be issued with BRP cards which I think is better; however, settle status only comes with email. In case I apply for BRP cards for them, do they need to still apply for settled status next year when they will b...

Re: EEA Residence and PR - Please suggestions

Well, you could bridge the gap by applying to the EU settlement scheme now. You will need to apply again once your residence card expires so as to upgrade from pre-settled status to settled status. It will help if your partner already has settled status.

Will the evidence still be available in 20 years time, in case HMPO no longer trusts their previous checks? 2) My wife entered the UK in May 2015 but the 5 year Residence Card was on...

Does a comprehensive sickness insurance count as evidence?
CSI is not required.
Is it not needed, though, to prove that she was a qualified person before settled status was granted? (Being a permanent resident would also be good enough.)

Re: tricky -Re Naturalisation as British citizen - not employed during qualifying period

Yes, my spouse was working and did support me. But does British citizen working in the UK (his home country) constitute 'exercising treaty rights'? As you seem to have lived together only in the UK, no, I'm afraid you can't use Surinder Singh, (There's nothing in Surinder Singh that restricts it to...

Re: tricky -Re Naturalisation as British citizen - not employed during qualifying period

So since I took a settled status route (which does not require CSI) and will be relying on it when applying for naturalisation is it the case that HO will be disregarding it too ? But you only joined that route when you were granted settled status. Until then, your status for nationality law depend...
