Every year thousands of individuals in London and across the country begin the process of naturalising as a British citizen. Doing so can have major implications for you and your family, as well as having an impact on the nationality you currently hold. For these reasons we recommend seeking legal advice from our specialist citizenship solicitors before embarking on the process.
There are a number of criteria that must be fulfilled in order to become a British citizen. In order to be considered you must;
Be at least 18 years of age
Be settled in the UK
Intend to live in Britain
Be of good character
Have good knowledge of life in the UK
Every case is different, and particular requirements will vary from case to case. For example, the residency requirements for an individual who is married to a British citizen will vary from the requirements for somebody who is not.
Our Stratford citizenship solicitors will take the time to evaluate your circumstances before advising on the specific criteria you will need to fulfil.
A successful citizenship application means you will have the right to live and work in Britain free of any immigration controls, and will have the right to apply for a British passport. Our lawyers know how important this process is for our clients, and will do whatever they can to help you on your way to a successful application.
