wrong category was choosen.. need imigiration law on this question!!
Hi, Got my indefinite to remain in UK in 1997. In 2003 I worked TKMAXX and had few stuff in my locker till I get paid anyways went to magistrate court for theft and got 40hr community service. Later in 2006 I went to crown court for Arson and handed 18month suspended sentence and 40hr community sentence which I did complete and since then I have not got in trouble with police. Now since this new law has introduced can I apply for neutralization and to get my British passport. I mean since I haven't been to prison will it count as a non-custodial sentence which I can apply after 3 years since finishing the sentence. It's been 7 years lapsed since my 18 month suspended sentence. Am I good to apply?? Regards
Hi, can you be little more specific as you just said yes you can apply but include all your convictions. I need little bit more specifics before rating your service.
So does this mean my 18 month suspended sentence that was received in june 2006 counts as a non-custodial sentence. Because before the new law they considered suspended sentence same as imprisonment and its has a rehabilitation period of 15 years before applying.
So what you saying is that my suspended sentence counts as non-custodial sentence which has a rehabilitation of 3 years before applying?
Hi, sorry to bother you again.. My wording regarding can I apply for neutralization now was actually referring to will my application be successful if I apply now and include all my convictions??
