Hi, What is your specific question please?Tom
Thank you for your question and patience, I’m Tom and I’ll try to help you.
It’s difficult to be certain, but the home office can deprive someone of their citizenship where the application to naturalise contained information which would have affected the individual’s ability to meet the good character requirement.
So, by fraudulently claiming benefits would probably be regarded as Deceitful or Dishonest Dealings with Her Majesty’s Government. This is a ground on which a person could fail to meet the good character requirement, which would mean that the naturalisation application would have been refused.Therefore, the home office would have a basis on which to seek to revoke the person’s citizenship.Whether or no they would seek to do so in this case depends on whether or not they actually become aware of it and the degree to which the deception has occurred.
I would basically say that there is a risk, though not an immediate or absolute risk of revocation of citizenship and the person is simply going to have to wait and see.
My goal is to provide you with a good service. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up issues specifically relating to your question.
