Re: How to apply spouse to become a british Citizen?

Not true. Residence in the UK (for several years) is required.

He might be "110% confident" but he is "100% wrong".
This would not be the first time the enquiry line gives wrong information.

Re: Switching from Tier 1 (G) to EEA Residence Card. Downsid

What you are missing is the timing. i.e. - be in the UK for 5 years - lived with the EEA national for 5 years as a family member - EEA national bas been exercising treaty rights. You need to complete 5 years as a family member. You only regarded as family member if you are married or (if not married...

Re: Switching from Tier 1 (G) to EEA Residence Card. Downsid

Very simple. Under EEA regulations, only spouse of EEA national has automatic rights. Unmarried partner doesn't have automatic rights. So time under EEA regulations is counted (automatically) if married. If unmarried, time only counts if an application under the EEA regulations has been made (the au...

Re: EEA wife naturalization

My worry is that because I did not apply for Pr they will use 10 years residence to decide my application instead of the original 5 yrs plus 1yr pr and that if they refuse my application I could face a 10 yr ban. ????? Why would they do that? Did you fill in section 2.4-2.6 for people under EEA reg...

One trip. Its the absence from the UK the HO is interested in. Not your itinerary.

Re: PR for Child

See the FAQ (links below).

Basically, if he is UK born, he can register now based on your PR. If born abroad, can apply together with you. I would question the need for a British citizenship if you are EEA but that's a different topic.

I think caseworker has given you incomplete or wrong advise. Child can register as British national if under 18 years of age and one of parent has PR. See below guide: https://www.gov.uk/register-british-citizen/born-in-uk-after-1983 This is true but he applied for PR not registration so case worke...

2.4/2.5 should be your details.

Re: Form AN validity

Unlike immigration applications, for naturalisation the form will never become invalid. There is no legal requirement to use a form and it will not affect your application if you use an old version.

(1) is right. She can apply. She doesn't need you to apply but will base her PR status on your treaty rights.

You don't apply for passport online, just fill in the form online, you then need to print it (or they send it to you), sign it and send it in the post with supporting documents. You child would be British from birth if born in the UK and one of parent was settled. To be settled under EEA Regulations...

Re: Child Benefit will be a problem in future for my EEA4 ?

Child benefit will not affect your application. It's a benefit EU citizens (and their family members) are entitled to receive and it doesn't affect your status. Assuming your wife had PR status before the birth, and the child was born in the UK, the child is also British (not that this changes anyth...

Re: British citizenship for non-eea spouse

She will have PR if she lived in the UK for 5 years. Just being your wife is not enough. Your blue (PR) card + proof of residence for her for 5 years will prove she has PR. Your naturalisation certificate (and marriage certificate) will allow her to apply as spouse of BC.
