Immigration law question

23rd Jan 2019

My mother was born in Germany in 1951 to a German father and British mother. She came with them to the UK when she was a few months old and has lived here all her life (she's 67 now). Schooled here, worked here, receives her pension here, married two english men and has two British children. However still has a German passport and as far as I know has never gained any kind of official citizenship. In the light of recent events, does she need to do anything to protect her position in the UK? Many thanks.

    Your mother would be required to take steps as it protect her position in the United Kingdom. She would be required to complete a pre-settled or settled application, depending on the facts of her case.
