Re: Parents settlement

Also 65 would be considered relatively quite young nowadays. Retirement age is 67 in the UK generally. As Casa has mentioned above, the requirements for an Adult Dependent Relative visa are far higher than just having a British citizen child and your parent is highly unlikely to succeed. According t...

Re: Naturalisation application delays for Refugees Applicants

The progress of outstanding enquiries is regularly monitored with the agencies carrying out these enquiries on our behalf.

Re: Is it worth asking HO to complete ceremony in an embassy overseas?

I guess I'll have to pay up more money to eventually have my child be granted their citizenship too, that's rather sad and frustrating but hey ho, at least we're all safe. Life is about the choices we make. Had the child been born in the UK, it would have been born a British citizen (as you would l...

Possibly. You, your children or grandchildren may be asked to prove your/their right to British nationality at any time in the future.

Re: Child BRP expiring

Where was your son born? When did your wife and you acquire ILR? What kind of leave to remain does he hold on his BRP?

He would need either some form of leave to remain or citizenship to reside in the UK legally.

The emotional attachment is something that the Home Office will not look at. Just to set expectations, according to Home Office stats, only 6% are successful on initial applications, and a further 16% after expensive court appeals. Which means that even after appeals, about 80% of all Adult Dependen...

The questions that you raise would require an extensive study of nationality law and I would suggest that you engage a lawyer specialising in nationality law if you want a certain answer.

Re: ILR from India for my 2 years old daughter born in India.

Children born abroad follow the immigration path of the less-privileged parent and your daughter will be eligible for ILR when the mother is.

The child will also need to apply for and get ILR before getting registered as a British citizen.
