Legally, if you are travelling with your wife you don't need a visa. As you have RC and it doesn't state that it was granted following RoR, this should be good enough to travel visa free when travelling with your wife. Dont u think an attentive IO would notice that marriage certificate is dated Jul...

Those with PR can apply for naturalisation a year after they automatically acquired PR (with additional docs to prove entitlement) or a year after date on PR. The only exemption to the 1-year waiting rule applies to spouses of British citizens, which u r not, right?

I think, the FPN becomes spent after 5 years, that's y all the insurance companies ask if u had any convictions in last 5 years. So wait till it's 5 years since ur fpn from 2007 and only then declare the 2012 fpn when applying.

Dont confuse a PCN (penalty charge notice) issued by councils for parking/bus lane contraventions on PUBLIC ROADS, with FPNs issued by police for speeding/insurance/red route etc contraventions. FPNs must be declared, PCNs do not, so assuming your 2011-2012 FPNs are actually PCNs then no need to dec...

basically, think of the EEA as one big country WITHOUT borders (if using the EU route and not internal immigration routes).

Can others confirm my view that there is NO NEED to have an intention to reside in the UK at the time of the application under s.6(2)? On my reading, British Nationality Act 1981 Schedule 1, par.1(d)(i) only applies to s.6(1) and there is no equivalent requirement for s.6(2) applicants! My view is a...
