Nationality

Naturalisation

There are two ways to qualify for naturalisation: five years lawful residency or three years lawful residency for someone who is married to a British Citizen. Applicants must have indefinite Leave to Remain before they can successfully apply for British naturalisation. There also requirements about not having spent too many days outside the UK during the relevant period and there is also an English language requirement.

If your application for British naturalisation is refused there is no right of appeal to the Immigration Tribunal, but you can ask for your application to be reconsidered.This is by way of a separate application for a reconsideration of your Refusal of British Citizenship and attracts a further Home office fee, which is currently £321 (in 2017) However, the Home office fees are increased regularly around April time.

If you think that you may qualify for naturalisation as a British citizenship we can assess your eligibility. You are welcome to call us on 020 8566 5522 for an preliminary informal discussion of your matter. We may ask you to send us further information about your matter either by fax on 020 8566 5511 or by email at enquiries@hudsonlegal.co uk so that we may get a fuller picture of your circumstances.

After this initial discussion, you may wish to book an appointment for a full consultation via SKYPE or ideally at our offices located at 7 Central Chambers, The Broadway, Ealing, W5 2NR. We are directly opposite Ealing Broadway Tube Station.

Registration

An application for a child’s registration as a British citizen may be made on the basis of entitlement but it may also be made on a discretionary basis.

A popular myth about a child born in the UK is that the child will automatically be a British citizen. This is not always the case, as it depends on the immigration status of the parents. And children born abroad or adopted abroad can, in some circumstances, be entitled to British citizenship by descent.

If you think that you or your child might qualify for registration as a British citizen we can assess your eligibility. You are welcome to call us on 020 8566 5522 for an preliminary informal discussion of your matter. We may ask you to send us further information about your matter either by fax on 020 8566 5511 or by email at enquiries@hudsonlegal.co uk so that we may get a fuller picture of your circumstances.
