Hi, thank you for your patience. I need further information in order to consider your enquiry.
1. When you say you went to Court since December 2010 what was the outcome of the Court proceedings?
2. What reasons were given for refusal on the 3 occasions you mentioned?
3. Are you self- employed or employed?
The UKBA have to be satisfied that you are a person of good repute when they consider your application to become a citizen. Depending on the result of the court proceedings you mentioned, the length of time that you will have to wait before making an application differs.
Your offence is classed as non-custodial as you were not imprisoned and generally for non-custodial offences applications will be refused if the conviction occurred in the 3 years before you make the application. When were you given the fine?
Thank you for your prompt response. It is right that you could apply for the citizenship any time now, however given that they have advised you in their decision that an application submitted before August 2020 is likely to be declined my view is that unless there are pressing reasons for wanting to submit it earlier you should apply after August 2020.
