Let Carter Law Assist with Your Application for Citizenship

Applying for Settlement

If you are a foreign national who has been lawfully living in the UK for a certain amount of time, you may be able to apply for permission to settle in Britain permanently. This is known as settlement or Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) and our specialist immigration solicitors understand the requirements of this process. They will quickly be able to assess whether you have a reasonable chance of success and work hard to secure your ILR.

ILR for Dependent Family Members

If you are a British citizen or have attained settlement in the UK and you have dependent family members overseas, we can help you make an application for them to join you and gain ILR for themselves.

Our expert immigration solicitors will tell you the strengths and weaknesses of your application and advise on the relevant laws governing your application.

Applying for Naturalisation (British Citizenship)

We can provide detailed advice on becoming a British citizen, guiding you through the complex requirements of the application process. If you have been living in the UK for some time and have been granted Indefinite Leave to Remain or are married, you may be able to apply for British Citizenship.

You will need to meet the qualifying residential requirements of 3 or 5 years, be ‘of good character’ and take an oath of allegiance at a Citizenship Ceremony. Your citizenship solicitor will be by your side every step of the way.
