Citizenship After Ilr (Dv) Granted - When I Can Apply?
Posted 12 March 2012 - 08:07 PM
I am not sure if I understood correctly my solicitor's advice two years ago and I couldn't find any information about it on the Home Office website.
My case in brief – my son and I were granted ILR in 2010 as a victim of Domestic Violence. We have been living in the UK since 2008. Solicitor, who dealt with my case in 2010, told us that we can apply for Citizenship 12 months after the ILR was granted. I have been divorced from a violent ex-husband since then.
Please, could you give me advice about residency criteria after Domestic Violence cases - can I apply for citizenship after three years of residency in the UK (because I was spouse, but fled Domestic violence), or I should wait five years of my residency? Or in my case is it not relevant at all and is 12 months since my ILR enough to qualify?
Thank you very much for your help

You still need to have been lawfully resident for 5 years.
