UK nationality law can be very complicated and your automatic entitlement to citizenship depends on a number of factors including your place of birth, your date of birth and your parents’ nationalities.

If you wish to apply to naturalise or become a British Citizen after you have obtained indefinite leave to remain or permanent residence, you will need to meet a number of other criteria including a residency requirement, sufficient knowledge of the English language and Life in the UK, and a good character requirement.

Our expert nationality lawyers can advise and assist you in obtaining full British citizenship.

We can advise you on all aspects of the application including which documents are required to support the applications.

An increasing number of applications are being refused due to applicants failing the good character requirement which looks at both your criminal and immigration history. It is therefore critical to obtain your full history before submitting any application to ascertain whether any of your actions in the previous ten years would result in you failing the good character requirement.
