Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I am married to a british citizen and left the country in 2008 after exhausting all my appeals to apply for entry clearance abroad and returned in 2010.i was granted ILR in April 2013 and applied for naturalisation in may2014. I received a letter of refusal on 01sept stating the reason for refusal was because I worked illegally from 2003-2008.they have said I can apply for reconsideration if I think the reason is incorrect. can you help?

You should seek a reconsideration of this decision if they are incorrect in their analysis. It is certainly to your advantage to make such an application in writing - it will often work - it is your further opportunity to deal with this issue head on. Happy to discuss, but please rate positively - thanks
