The EA Law Immigration team understands applying for British Citizenship is a crucial application as it can be the last step over a long period of time. Our skilled lawyers have particular expertise in complex British Citizenship applications. We ensure your application has the best chance of success by working closely with you and your immigration history.
In some cases, the Home Office can apply discretion in British Citizenship applications where you are unable to meet all the requirements, such as spending excessive amount of time outside the UK. In these particular cases, our solicitors can provide legal knowledge to advice on the best option and the likely chance of Home Office discretion. We can also challenge an unfairly rejected application.
British Citizenship for adults
Adults will have to prove they meet either the 3 or 5 years residence requirement and have held ILR for at least 1 year (unless you are married to a British Citizen). Adults born in the UK and have lived here for the first 10 years of their life will be eligible to apply for British Citizenship regardless of their status.
British passport applications
Children and adults born abroad will have to prove they were born British when applying for their British passport. Various factors are considered when determining this and evidence will have to be provided.
British Citizenship for Children
There are various routes to Citizenship for a child. There are key factors to consider such as the child’s date of birth, where they were born and the status of their parents at the time of birth (and sometimes at the time of applying). First, we would assess whether your child was born British. If they were, we would seek to prove this and apply for a British passport with evidence. The complexity in this area is best demonstrated by a few examples in these case studies.
