Indefinite Leave to Remain & Naturalisation

Indefinite leave to remain, also known as settlement and permanent residence, means that a foreign national no longer has a time limit on their ability to live and work in the UK. They can live in the UK indefinitely and can work, in any capacity and for any employer, or study or do neither.

We advise clients on making applications for indefinite leave to remain under all categories of the Immigration Rules ensuring that all the requirements are met.

We advise clients on their entitlement to British nationality and on their eligibility to apply to naturalise. We also advise on children’s applications to register as British citizens including advice on submitting applications where the secretary of state is asked to exercise her discretion to allow the child to register as British.

We have particular expertise in obtaining successful decisions where our client has had absences significantly in excess of the number ordinarily permitted under the legislation.
