As they visas expiring previously were extended can we expect an extension until september or December automatically?
No, we can't expect it. No such concession has been announced so far and I would not expect it, especially as it is likely that the virus will likely recede in the summer months.

Re: Fee Waiver

Keep in mind that if you get a fee waiver, your wife and son will be on a 10 year to ILR FLR(FP) route and that if your son gets ILR after his 18th birthday, he will need to meet all the requirements for British citizenship/naturalisation as an adult himself (i.e. it will not be as your dependent).

Re: Waiting for ceremony but want to change my name

You should wait until you have a British passport and then change your name and foreign passport and apply for a new British passport again. Totally agree. Now is the wrong time to change your name. Keep in mind that you will need to change your name in all foreign passports that you have before ap...

Re: What is a parent of a British citizen entitled to?

For background into the OP's current circumstances, also see these threads . Relatively little. I believe that the parents can apply to stay in the UK with the child (which I understand is the route that you are already on), but the parents will be on a 10 year FLR(FP) path and I am not sure whether...

Re: Child born in Pakistan

Then apply for an overseas passport directly for the child.

Be aware that first British applications from the sub-continent can take six months to a year.

the child will need a visa and follow the same path to ilr as the mother.
Once both the child and the mother have ILR, the child can then register as a British citizen.

Re: help please ....British citizenship for under 18 kid not born in UK

Nationality is not a part of the immigration process, which ends at ILR/ILE. They are different processes with different requirements under different rules and administered by different teams within the Home Office.

Re: help please ....British citizenship for under 18 kid not born in UK

Do you have any documentary proof of sole responsibility? Without that, the MN1 application may run into rough weather.

Also, does your child have ILR/ILE?
