London Solicitor Naturalisation
Are you or someone you know looking to naturalise as a British Citizen?
British nationality laws in the United Kingdom are one of complex across the globe. It is not always easy or straightforward to understand it. To understand it, could make the difference between knowing whether you are entitled to British citizenship or not.
There are different types of British nationality.
It is important to know what appropriate options are open to you or someone you know who wish to apply for British nationality. We can even help you if you or someone you know has been refused naturalisation by the Home Office.
The relevant laws concerning British nationality are contained within the British Nationality Act 1981. The criteria under which you could apply depends on whether you are applying to naturalise on the basis of marriage to a British citizen or on the basis of a UK connection other than marriage.
The usual criteria for naturalisation as a British Citizen is as follows:
- you have held Indefinite Leave to Remain status for at least 12 months;
- you have lived in the UK for a relevant minimum period before applying and you have not been absent in the UK for more than the required length of time;
- you meet the Good Character Test;
- you have sufficient knowledge of language and life in the UK; and
- you have an intention to live in the UK.
If you need more information about the above, please call us on 0208 679 5100 or alternatively, on 07724 513 822 or send us an email.

How we can help you
For a majority of our immigration matters, we charge a fixed fee.
It is our usual practice to require any fees that are payable for work to be done on your behalf to be paid in advance before any work is carried out. This means that you must pay before any work is started, including applications that need to be submitted to the Home Office or for any appeals that need to be lodged with the First‐tier Tribunal.
However, we do understand that not everyone will be able to pay in this manner. That is why we offer flexible payment options for individual clients.
For a confidential consultation to speak with us about how we can help you about your immigration matter, please call us on 0208 679 5100 or alternatively, on 07724 513 822 or send us an email.
We are happy to discuss your immigration matter with you over the telephone initially so that you can decide before what you want to do or how you wish to proceed. If you are interested in seeking more information and/or advice and want to see us for an appointment in person, we ask for an initial payment on account of £150.00 to be made in advance to us after which an appointment is arranged with one of our Immigration Solicitors.
If you do instruct us and proceed ahead with the making of any application or appeal, this initial payment will be taken off the cost of the matter that we deal with on your behalf. However, in the event that you do not proceed and instruct us on any matter, then the initial payment will cover the cost of the appointment and will be non‐refundable.
