Hi,

 

What do you mean by "permanent resident" - are you a British National, or do you have indefinite leave to remain etc?

 

Please clarify.

 

Kind regards,

Expert:  Thomas replied 7 years ago.

Hi,


Sorry, I'm not sure what you're referring to; Does that mean you have indefinate leave to remain in the UK. If not, please clarify.

 

Tom

Customer: replied 7 years ago.

yes

Expert:  Thomas replied 7 years ago.

Hi,

 

If you as the father of the child have indefinite leave to remain in the UK then you will have to make an application to the Home Office on behalf of your child for their indefinite leave to remain in the UK as a dependent of you. You will have to make the application using Form SET(F), available for download from the Home Office/UKBA website.

 

Good luck.

sorry what about the mother pls.
Expert:  Thomas replied 7 years ago.

Please provide more detail about her. Are you planning on getting married? Are you in a relationship? Does she work?

 

Tom

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
im planning to come back with her and married her,i dont think her work now.
Expert:  Thomas replied 7 years ago.

Right. If you are to marry her outside the country then she wil have to make an application for a spouse visa before she comes back to the UK otherwise she will be in the country illegally and run the risk of being deported.

 

I hope this clarifies, if so please kindly click accept.

 

Kind regards,

pls tell me the mean between permanent resident [for eu nation]and indefinite leave because i have permanent resident card.pls example
Expert:  Thomas replied 7 years ago.

Hi,

 

Permanent residence is granted to EEA nationals when they apply after living in the UK for 5 years. They can then apply for naturalisation so that they become a citizen and can then obviously apply for a UK passport.

 

Indefinite leave to remain is granted to person from another country who has applied for ILR after living in the UK for the requisite number of years (it is different depending on if you are a worker, student etc...)

Expert:  Thomas replied 7 years ago.

Yes, as a child of a person who has indefinite leave to remain you will be eligible for child benefits. You have to contact your local authority's benefit department.
