Thanks for your question
You will be aware that as a requirement for naturalization you must meet the united kingdom border agency requirements in terms of good character
The united kingdom border agency also committed to take into account good character when considering whether or not a person should be granted indefinite leave to remain good character is generally regarded as not having any unspent convictions update the application is submitted to the u k b a.
If you only received this sentence to describe in your original question then the spent. For this conviction the spent period is 5 years
It is therefore possible thr united kingdom border agency good project your application on this basis
Ho weverif you are able to mitigate the offence by explaining any surrounding circumstances which contributed to you commiting this offence and are also able to provide extensive character references then it is likely that you will still be granted indefinite leave to remain
Because of the slightly complicated nature of your application I would highly suggest that you should instruct a solicitor to prepare your application for indefinite leave to remain.
Provided you do this you will still have a good chance I'll be successful in your application
Pllease kindly rate my answer as okay service for adults otherwise I did not receive any credit for the time I have taken to answer your question Kind regards Tom
