Settlement and British Citizenship
Family migrants and those who have worked and studied in the UK may become eligible to apply for settlement and British Citizenship. When a person becomes settled there are no restrictions on the time that they can stay in the UK. Many of our clients instruct us to help them with all of their applications from their first entry and extending their stay, to qualifying for settlement and then naturalisation as a British Citizen.
Migrants who have been legally resident in the UK for 10 consecutive years may also be eligible to apply for settlement under the Long Residence rules. We bring a great deal of expertise to advising on the requirements and supporting evidence for such applications.
“The Immigration Department at Henry Hyams Solicitors helped me to secure Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK as the spouse of a British national. The Department was extremely successful in dealing with the UK Border Agency and handled my case promptly and courteously, helping me with a difficult situation. I would recommend the Department to a friend or relative.”
