Dear Sir/Madam, I moved to UK with my family on Tier 2 in 2008 and we all obtained ILR in 2013. All my family members then naturalized in 2015. I couldn't apply for naturalization at that time as I had an unspent criminal record for giving false information to police on a driving accident incident. I was fined for that and the record was spent in December 2015. Can I apply for the citizenship now and what are the chances of getting the citizenship please? I don't have any other convictions (not even a speeding ticket) other than this stupid act since birth. I've been a taxpayer since 2008 and working for the same organization I've joined in 2008. Also, I'm actively involved in running two charities. Your help with this will be very much appreciated.
