1. Provided your two kids were born in the UK and are UK citizens, then you can apply to the UK Border AGency for a visa to remain in the UK and a work permit. This follows from teh recent Zambrano decision of the European court of Justice, which held that the parent of any EU citizen, such as a UK citizen, has the automatic right to live and work in the EU to support his child. the parent also has the right to be considered for citizenship once they have fulfilled the period of residency provided for in domestic (UK) law. Accordingly, if your two children are UK citizens, you now have an automatic right to live and work in the UK and if you frame your application in these terms, you will geta postive reply from the Border Agency. You will also need to submit your child/children's Birth Certificate which shows they are a UK citizen or a copy of their passport to that effect.
