British Citizenship

Our specialist immigration lawyers are highly experienced in applying for Naturalisation or Registration for British Citizenship. Our team are on hand to help guide you through the process and increase your chances of success.

Once you have full British Citizenship you are free to apply for a British passport.

We can advise on all aspects of Citizenship including, residence, eligibility requirements and the documents required to support the applications. We also advise on complex citizenship applications and queries over claims to citizenship.


If you have been living and working in the UK for at least 5 years and hold Indefinite Leave to Remain, you may wish to make an application for British citizenship through naturalisation. If you are successfully granted British Citizenship, you will be permitted to hold a British passport.

This will allow you to stay in the UK permanently and enjoy the full range of rights as UK citizens. Our immigration solicitors can help you and your family with your application to make sure you meet the requirements for citizenship and guide you through the process from start to finish.


Registration is the way in which children can become British citizens and it is also used for adults in special circumstances. It is necessary for those over ten years old to be of good character, but it is not necessary to demonstrate knowledge of the language or of life in the UK.

There are several requirements and exceptions so it is best to speak to us about your individual circumstances so we can advise you on the best way forward.

  • I’ve been dealing with Rosie for a few months now, after withdrawing from a property we continued to use her for the purchase of our new one. Rosie’s changed my perception of solicitors as she always acted in my best interests, always responds very promptly to any questions (regardless of how silly). I will certainly be recommending Rosie to friends and family. I’m sure we will have dealings in the future. Value for money is seconded to none. 
    Thanks again

  • We recently used DV Solicitors for the purchase of a commercial property. Mr Nasar Ali was our solicitor. It isn’t easy with any commercial mortgage especially Lloyds but as Mr Ali’s experience showed he was excellent from start to finish. Always keeping us up to date with what was happening. Probably have about 30+ emails from him lol. Great guy, excellent service, very professional and courteous throughout the whole process. Will use and definitely recommend. 👍

  • We have used Deo Volente for the first time rewriting our wills and making changes to property ownership. Ms Farida Ahmed talked us through the process by telephone in a friendly and helpful manner. Based on our experience I would use their service again and would recommend them.
