Hi, I am a UK resident and I lived here for 10 years continuously and lawfully. My question is, that my case is in the appeal right now, but i have completed my legal time period of legal stay for ILR, which is 10 years. I have provided my 2 passports to the Home Office, already, but they have been expired. I am waiting for my current up-to-date passport, which is due to arrive in the next 2 weeks.
Can I add my new up-to-date passport with my ILR application please, as I am intending to go for a PEO same day service, soon.
I will be much obliged for your help,
Hello, I am a US citizen and I have lived continuously in the UK since 1973 with indefinite leave to remain since 1977. I am now 59, and am in full time employment in the UK, as I have been for the past 40 years. I would now like to apply for UK citizenship. However, with all the recent stories in the papers about long-term residents in the UK being refused ILR or citizenship on what appear to be technicalities, and sometimes even being deported, I am very concerned, if I apply for citizenship, whether my one previous criminal conviction, 32 years ago for shoplifting (non-custodial - fined £60) would have a negative impact on my application on the basis of "good character". In your opinion, do I need to be concerned?
I came to the UK in 2002 with a South African passport through citizenship, but I am a Ghanaian, I have recently applied for a Ghanaian passport and got it, I had a student visa afterwards I arrived in the UK, but could not finish my course because my partner and son joined me from Ghana causing my expenses to increase, my son came when he was 10 years and he is now 24 with leave to remain as well as my partner, I also have a son born here in the UK who 12 years coming 13 this October, we have applied UK citizenship for him which we are still waiting, with my student visa in 2002, I got my national insurance number and UK driving licence, at the moment I am illegal here, what are my chances as my 12 year UK born son solely depends on me, thank you Sir/Madam.
