Why would your lawyer possibly lie to you? Obviously she wouldn't at all. I was wrong to think that, she is a good woman, so ok then why the HO representing officers tell me that and then after me she call my lawyer and tell her different story!!!(to convince me not to go to court as I will lose an...

In one of the casework instruction chapters it clearly says that if euther the applicant's declaration (signature date) or referee's signature are over 6 months old, they may ask to redeclare/resign as circumstances may have changed so 6 months is the cut off date, which in almost all cases should n...

...sigh... It is not a new rule, one may apply for naturalisation upon obtaining ILR if married to a brit and satisfies residence requirements. The questions is- how will that person obtain ILR in the first place! Not that they can apply to naturalise, ilr is more difficult per se.

they should automatically send a covering letter, but most of the times they mistakenly send a generic letter saying you are still a family member of an EEA national and should anything change you must notify them. You should ensure that if you get that type of wrong letter you contact them asap and...

why don't you complain to the NWCSU@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk or whoever signed your attached covering letter when you received your EEA2? This is unacceptable if you provided all the proof etc so you may also complain to your MP as you waited like a door handle for around 6 months for their cok up!
