If your visa does not entitle you to claim benefits but you do then you both will not get ILR or naturalisation. Do not think it is a "could" but a sure "will not".
The OP is on ILR so he has access to public funds :!:
My bad apologies I obviously misinterpreted the statement...

Re: Covid 19 - Life in the UK test Centre Closure

I am in the same boat, want to submit my application on 08-May-20; visa expiration in first week of June. Re-booked LIUK test for 17 April but highly doubt it will go ahead! I wonder what happens to employment if your visa has expired and new one not yet approved due to covid-19? are there any repe...

Re: Naturalisation Refused help needed

Exercise of a discretion is subject to judicial review. How can it be? Discretion by its very definition is means consideration to offer flexibility where it does not meet the actual criteria. By admiting or claiming discretion was not applied means an admission that " oh I did not meet criteria an...

Re: Minor Child born in India can hold Dual Citizenship

Spot on agree with everything, well done typing this up. We should probably sticky this thread :) What is your source that this exemption applies only to jus soli? There is no legal basis for this statement AFAIK. I stand corrected. You could gain citizenship from descent too- the key word is "volun...

Re: Minor Child born in India can hold Dual Citizenship

Answer is no - that the dual citizen exemption is only given to countries that provide compulsory jus soli citizenship (birthright). For example, a child born to Indian parents on an H1B/L1 etc visa in the US is automatically a US citizen by birth. The parent can apply for Indian citizenship for th...

Re: Minor Child born in India can hold Dual Citizenship

Not according to Indian law (British law has no issues with the child holding dual citizenship). A child born with dual Indian/foreign citizenship can hold both citizenships till the age of 18 (provided they do not acquire a foreign passport), when s/he must decide which one they wish to retain.
