JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the UK government? What country do you live in? What is your citizenship?
Customer: No i have a british passport born 1939 norwich city and have uk resident address living with daughter but as explained above cannot return uk for a few.more weeks so will have about 4months left on my british passport
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer about this?
Customer: Dont understand why i should, british citizen returning home but only 4 months to expiration date

Thank you for your query, I am a Solicitor-Advocate in the UK and will be assisting you with your question today.

Kindly explain the scenario further.

What exactly is your question in relation to this?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
I have been in philippines for over years trying to recover investments i have made. I expect to succeed during june. I have been a british citizen for 83 years and my fa.ily over 1000years. I will be very anxious to freturn uk asap for obvious reasons..problem at that time my passport will be due to expire non 14 2022.
For reasons beyond my understanding if 6 months remained i would get into uk...but...if 4 months or similar ..not i correct in this assumption because it would mean i have to renew my passport here,and receive here..which could take 3 months.
Which i ould not stand..therefore is my assumption correct and what are my options...cant explain it any better..pls advise
