Hi
Thanks very much to everyone on this forum for help.
My question is regarding registering my 3y.o. daughter ad BC. She has been granted Ilr about a month ago and was born here.
The application form is quite easy to fill, but my only concern is about the length of time the referres should now my daughter for.
"One referee should be a professional who has engaged with the child in a professional capacity, such as a teacher, health visitor, social worker or minister of religion."
We have moved in our house 1,5 years ago, so have changed GP, Children's centres. No one here knows her for longer than 1,5 years.
Do I need to wait or can I apply right now for her BC?

Thanks for any reply

Please, can anyone reply?
Does the referee( professional) needs to know my daughter for certain length of time or there is no such a requirement?
Thanks

Not sure about BC as you says certain specific people can only sign.......but normally there is a long list of professionals who can be countersignatory for british passport application...one of mine friend have same problem for passport application but they finally got signed by Local councillor... somebody else might give you better idea

You can get someone who has met her and who knows either parent for the requisite length of time instead.

I recently applied for my son's BC which was accepted. There is no timeframe required for the referee to know the child. We got it signed by the staff at the nursery. Hope this helps.

I am applying for my 3 years old son's citizenship registration, for the professional referee can I use a Limited Company's director (who is a very close family friend of mine - the father of the applicant) ?

It is on the list of "Acceptable Professional Referees" - but on the MN1 form it says that the professional referee should have acted with the child in a professional capacity - which puts a question in my mind about using him as one.
