Re: 10 Years ILR with BV and ICT

Likely business visitor visa. I had never come across that abbreviation. I thought the OP mistyped DV. To the OP: as you have already been advised, all legal residence in the UK under any type of visas (including visit visas, which are the most restrictive visas in all other factors) count towards ...

Re: UK Citizenship eligibility for Kids

The children could have applied for registration with your naturalisation application.

Your wife (assuming she meets the other requirements) and your children can now apply for their British citizenship any time after your citizenship ceremony.

Re: Good character requirement: Natural Child & Impact on Naturalisation application.

Just under half of all new-born babies in England and Wales are born outside of wedlock. And that has been broadly consistent since 2008.

In the UK, culturally, it is not a matter of good or bad character to have children born outside wedlock. That is accepted as a part of social norms.

Re: Citizenship certificate- Stuck abroad because of red list

I suspect that he will not be able to do much about it. I presume that the council will return the certificate to the Home Office and that the application will be closed (due to absence from the UK). India only went into a Covid surge and redlist relatively recently (within the last six weeks?). Why...

Last date is 5th June.
Is that factoring in the 3 months extra grace period that the govt has given to attend naturalisation ceremonies, in addition to the standard 3 month period?

Re: Outside UK more than 180 days due to UKVI Fault

I'm going to disagree with Zimba about the outcome of asking for discretion. I think, from my reading of the Long Residence caseworker guidance , specifically pages 11-12, that the 180 day absence from the UK is a hard limit. When discretion is exercised in such cases, the outcome will likely be LOT...

Re: Voluntary Leave vs Deportation for Overstayer

The country of one's nationality/citizenship is obliged to take back their citizens (i.e. there are obligations under international laws of nation-states towards their own citizens to allow them to reenter their own nation-state). So, if the Home Office were to get to him, they would deport him to t...

Re: First Time Adult Passport with COE ROA

For my minor daughter, can I apply for ILR directly? No. As you are a British citizen by descent, your minor child is not a British citizen automatically. Non-British minor children follow the same UK Immigration status as that of the second/ less -privileged parent. Assuming that your parent was a...

Re: FLR-M - In country British spouse & children and non eu spouse.

I am surprised that your wife was allowed into the UK on a visit visa at all, for precisely the reason that applications like yours (of applying on human rights law rather than FLR(M)) would follow, attempting to bypass the strict UK Immigration Rules. As an aside, you can't switch to any other form...

ILR lapses automatically after an absence from the UK for more than two years. You will need to apply for a Returning Resident visa before returning to the UK and will need to prove "your strong ties to the UK" and "your current circumstances and why you’ve lived outside the UK". An absence of five ...

Re: ILR Submitted after visa expiry due to delay in LIUK Test and work right

There is no leniency as to the right of work. That is an automatic provision of law that extends your leave (and right to work) if you had applied for ILR or another form of leave before the end of your previous leave. That is not something that the caseworker can extend. Indeed, if you are already ...
