British nationality and settlement
Most people who have an interest in the UK would like to acquire settlement status and eventually naturalise to become a British citizen.
British Nationality Law is complicated and has been built on successions of government legislation. For most people, unless you have acquired a right of abode in the UK, you would need to acquire settled status before becoming a British citizen. The period that you would need to complete in the UK before you can apply for settlement will range, depending on the category that you are under. Our immigration solicitors can help you plan for the future and discuss with you different options that will ultimately lead to settlement and British citizenship.
