Are you married to a UK national?
No i am not. i was resident for 5 years as i was an EU family member (my mum was of italian nationality). then i was eligible to the indefinite leave to remain which i was granted. i then continued living in the uk, and kept postponing the idea of applying for the british nationality for 6 years. then i had to go abroad for a year and i was hoping to apply now. i am planing to go back and live in uk but that will be in few months and i wish to apply for the citizenship immediately.
