Hello,For naturalisation, you need both life in the UK and English language test passes, same applies to your partner.Your children cannot be added to your naturalisation application, you may only apply jointly with your spouse.You need to apply for registration of your children as British, using form MN1.Once they are registered, you may apply for their British passports.See herehttps://www.gov.uk/government/publications/application-to-register-child-under-18-as-british-citizen-form-mn1Can I help further?
