  • Proof of residency while unemployed

    Can you help me, please?
    I am in process of collecting information about my residency in the UK for my Citizenship application.

    As a married individual to British Citizen, I need to provide just 3 years.
    I have had permanent resident status since 2016 and Settle In from August 2019.

    In 2018 my husband and I adopted our daughter and after my paternity leave has finished( March 2019) I stayed at home and continued to look after her.
    And here start the problem with proving my residency.

    I have contacted the social service departments to provide me with a letter covering time until June 2019
    From January to April 2020 and September to December 2020, I attended a college course and they kindly provide me with a confirmation letter with all dates in it.
    I have contacted HMRC to provide me with a letter confirming that I receiving the Child tax credit

    I have contacted our local council to proving me a letter confirming paying council tax for 2019 and 2020
    And I have contacted my dentist and GP to provide me with a letter which has the dates of my visit in it too.
    .
    I returned to work in December 2020.
    This gives me a gap in employment that I need to fill.

    Would you suggest that the caseworker recognise the presented documents?
    Would you think I have provided a significant amount of information to prove my continuous residency?
    Or you may have other suggestions Please help

    Morning,

    This is something you should be able to explain in your cover letter, it's not the gap in employment as such you need to explain. Do bear in mind letters from government departments are accepted, and this should include Social Services. I should think if you explain the situation as you've done above, you should have enough evidence for the last 3 years. Should they require anything further, they would contact you, but it's better to explain in the letter to avoid this situation.

      You may also want to refer to the following resources which are the starting point for citizenship applications:If you are an EEA national, you may also want to consider the potential impact of becoming British if you wish to sponsor family members in the future: Impact on family members
