“British nationality is a privilege and not a right you were born with! Have you finally obtained your Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK and now wish to naturalise as a British citizen? Are you unsure if you can qualify for British nationality due to your absences in the last five years and 12 months?”
We are all aware of the requirements for British nationality, however many applicants have had their application refused on the day of applying on the basis were not physically present in the UK when the five years’ counting period first began.
Mr S, an Indian national received settlement a year back having satisfied the Immigration Rules in place at the time. He is a returning client of A Y & J Solicitors who assisted him in securing his settlement. Where many applicants decide to apply for naturalisation on their own, Mr S chose to have us guide him in preparation, and represent him in his British naturalisation application. He is a full-time employee and not able to keep up with the changes in Immigration Rules and Law, so he was happy to instruct A Y & J Solicitors to handle the British nationality applications for himself and his child.

When he returned to our office Mr S was fully aware of the rules regarding absences, he had been careful not to exceed the number of allowable absences outside the UK. In the last 12 months, he had not been outside the UK for more than 90 days.
A Y & J Solicitors carefully checked every detail for Mr S during the process of his naturalisation application. Our team also prepared the application forms for him and his child, drafted detailed legal representations as to why he should be given British nationality, and liaised with the Nationality department when required. What mattered for Mr S was obtaining British citizenship. However, the continuous updates A Y & J Solicitors offered during the application process put his mind at peace.
With expert help and assistance from A Y & J Solicitors, Mr S and his child were granted British nationality, without encountering any glitches.
Our clients are happy and we are super happy for them!
