It is 3 years from marriage.
I wonder if any of you legal eagles could help me out on interpreting this
I am going to apply for naturalisation under crown service rules.
If you are married to or the civil partner of a British citizen who is in Crown service or asimilar service, there is a possible alternative to the 3 year residential qualifying period. To
apply on this basis you will need to show that:
• On the day you apply your husband, wife or civil partner is working outside the UK
either in Crown or designated service.
• Your husband, wife or civil partner should have been recruited in the UK to that
• Your naturalisation on Crown or designated service grounds should be in the interests
of your husband’s, wife’s or civil partner’s employing organisation. The organisation
should provide a letter to this effect.
• If you are in the UK on the day you apply, you must not be subject to time restrictions
on your stay.
• You were not in the UK in breach of the immigration laws during the period of 3 years
immediately before applying.
• Your marriage/civil partnership should have lasted 3 years or more
Marriage or civil partnership to a British citizen in Crown or designated service is only an
alternative to certain of the requirements about residence in the UK. You must still satisfy the
requirements about character, language skills and knowledge of life in the UK and, if you have
been in the UK, you must comply with the above requirements about lawful residence and
freedom from immigration time restrictions.
Does this mean that i have to wait 3 years from my family ariving in the UK or 3 years from marriage???

Tobias is all over it, thanks mate going to apply then in late Aug after our trip home to sunny Yorkshire.
Another question for the legal eagles.
I have printed out the forms for Naturalisation and the from AN is for an adult. This has Crown service rules on it.
I have also printed form MN1 which is for children under 18 out which does not have a box ticking for crown service rules.Can i naturalise all of the family in one go or should the wife be done then the children later or apply for them all under thses rules.I have tried to speak to the Naturalisation people in liverpool but when you go through the options it says send a email which i have done. You then get an automated response that goes out to every one. So in essence you cannot speak to anyone. i am also going to naturalise every one from Germany through Dusseldorf as at this present moment in time this can be done.
In all seriousness, you have the correct froms, i.e. AN for your wife and MN1 for the children. Children aren't 'naturalised' but 'registered' as British citizens. On the assumption your wife and her children apply at the same time, the outcome of the children's applications will be decided by the outcome of your wife's. In other words, if your wife's succeeds, then in all likelihood, so will the children's.
Just a couple of suggestions.
Your advice is taken on board.
The reason i adressed it to the legal eagles is due to the circumstances. I don't think that there will be many people on this forum who have had thier family naturalised under crown service rules.
Having dramas filling out the MN1 form any help would be great.
First question 1.1 yes stuck at the first hurdle. Please indicate the section of the British Nationality act 1981 under which you would like the application to be considered.
qestion 1.21 details about the boys farther we only know his name, what should i put??
Well nearly waited 24hrs now so Anyone help with this
I'm not being funny, but members aren't at others' beck and call. It is not good form to demand answers. No-one who contributes to this forum is under any obligation to impart information. They choose to do so at their own discretion.
The 'legal eagles' also have spouses, kids, mortgages and bills to pay. As you expect to be paid for your honourable service to the UK, so do the 'legal eagles' for addressing case-specific immigration and nationality issues. If you want general advice, then I can direct you towards the relevant law:-
But if you want someone to fill a form in for you over the internet on a question-by-question basis, using their time and knowledge, then that's when you have to cough up.
See also Volume 1: The British Nationality Act 1981 - caseworking instructions (probably chapters 9 & 18).
We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.
I am not been funny either, and i don't expect anyone to be on my beck and call as you MERSEY MIKE PUT IT. I was stuck on a few questions and asked for some help has as others in the past. There is a point to note her and that is although i an not qualified to give help i still take my time to answer when i can.
Thank you vinny for you post and time, that has helped me.
MM, that is one of the most obnoxious posts I've ever read on these forums. Totally unnecessary
If you're offended by any assistance I give, it says far more about you than it does me.
Keith is entitled to hold his view of the obnoxiousness of my earlier post, but doesn't define why he finds it obnoxious. Until he does so, I can neither agree nor disagree.Narcissists hold unreasonable expectations of particularly favorable treatment and automatic compliance because they consider themselves special. Failure to comply is considered an attack on their superiority, and the perpetrator is considered an "awkward" or "difficult" person.
MM, you should feel honoured to have the opportunity to assist a man who believes the whole world revolves around him. In fact, you should pay him for the mere privilege to be at his beck and call, and complete all the naturalisation forms for him for free. Come on, no self-obsessed man should have to wait more than 24 hours for free advice and assistance in family matters of such importance!
It certainly does not fall under what I would describe as respectful, responsible, polite, constructive or tasteful.
Since when has possessing a sustainable opinion been 'obnoxious'?
'Narcissistic' is an adjective. The disorder is 'narcissism'. The rest of your post is so littered with grammatical errors that I won't pretend to understand it. But, hey, that might be my fault.
