I live with my wife in Northern Ireland. My wife was born in UK, Northern Ireland and holds both Irish and British passports
Yes she holds both passports by birth and have lived her entire life to date in Northern Ireland UK. Home Office approved us to marry in 2009. I was on student visa up to 2007 when I met my wife then married in 2009. Home Office after I won my case when I was initially refused resident permit, issued my with Family resident permit in 2011. I applied under my wife Irish passport under EU law. Now that we have two kids and because I want to change employment, I want to know if I would be successful in applying for naturalization under UK law with my wife British passport?
Yes my resident card was issued in 2011 due to expire in 2016 but I intend to change career. So I am considering applying for naturalization instead. Although my 5yrs is to expire in 2016 but I thought I could simply now apply under UK Law for naturalization with my wife's British passport and with regards XXXXX XXXXX immigration history.
I understand that. I did also saw a part where it said a spouse married to British national for 3yrs can still apply for naturalization as a standard residency requirement. Making application for naturalization under UK Law upon my wife's British passport in my view is separate or will my current status be brought into question?
Very clear answer. What if after 5yrs my wife hasn't be working, can i then apply for naturalization or indefinite leave to remain in my own right and considering my two kids with my wife? What if we separate after 5yrs when my current EEA residency expires, will still qualify for PR? Looking at my current EEA residency and by virtue of my marriage to my wife and our marriage and as British citizen regardless of her Irish passport, AM I UNDER IMMIGRATION CONTROL HOWEVER?
One last question before I rate to finish:
Say we were to separate after 5yrs, will my application for PR/ILR/Naturalization be successful in my own right under UK Law?
Great answer and thanks alot for your detailed information and I am glad.
