Customer Question

Hello.My name is XXXXX XXXXX grateful to receive some advice from you if possible.
I live in England since 18.09.2010.All these 3 years I've been living with my husband wchich is British.I've got my ILRstatus since fabruary2013.So I could apply for my naturalisation already.But at the moment I'm in separation with my husband because of his behaviour and he is in prison now and I planing to divorce him.So I havn't got any contact with him(through my solicitor only).so I would like to ask- could I apply for my naturalization now after 3 years living in this country( we are still married but already in separation) or I have start divorce process first and apply for sitizenship after 5 years like not married person? Thank you so much if you can help me.
Kind regards.

Hi thank you for your question.

You are able to apply for British citizenship after 3 years, this is because the basis on which you applied for ILR was your marriage and therefore the same rules will apply when you apply for your citizenship regardless of your situation with your husband.
