We were instructed to represent and advise our client on their application for naturalisation as a British Citizen. The Home Office was not satisfied that our client met the requirement of “good character”, as the client had a gap in the immigration history. Further, the Home Office queried how our client maintained herself during the gap period whereby they believed she had no valid leave to remain.
The client then instructed us and thereafter, we made a fresh application to the Home Office addressing all the relevant points. We advised the clients on the required documentation and accordingly applied with a Form AN application for naturalisation as a British citizen. The Home Office then raised further enquiries about the applicants “good character”, particularly regarding our client’s compliance with the UK immigration laws and later, the application was subsequently refused.
We challenged the aforesaid decision by way of a Form NR Reconsideration of decisions to refuse British citizenship as we believed that this decision was incorrect and unlawful. Thereafter, we provided the Home Office with the obligatory evidence and following this, the application was successful. Our client is now a British citizen.
