Simply being born in the UK, or having settlement rights does not make you a British citizen.
Deciding to become a British citizen can be a significant step in your life, and the law in relation to whether you are a British Citizen, or entitled to become one, can be extremely complex and can be very expensive if you get it wrong. For example, Home Office rules mean that applicants can be barred from applying for a 10 year period if they complete their application form incorrectly and fail to disclose relevant information!
Simply being born in the UK, or having settlement rights does not make you a British citizen. Albany Solicitors are experts in advising on all aspects of ‘becoming British’ and are able to offer comprehensive services to assist in any applications that may be made.
