    I've just got the email after the up and downs of applying at the weekend. I'm now the proud owner of a settled status!

    Very pleased for you. I am still disgusted that you have to apply for the legal right to be in a country that has been your home for so long.
    I’m in the opposite situation : not sure of the exact details yet but a British government website tells me that when I have to apply for a carte de séjour it will cost me 119€. Lovely. Just to continue as I am.

    That’s excellent news. Congratulations. Just disappointing that you need to do this now after being here for so long.

    Look after it. Water it well and keep it fed and clean.

    How else would people such as catmother who have a right to remain be distinguished from foreigners who do not have a right to remain here? Settled status is essential to protect the rights of people like catmother. It is simply one of those things, like registering births, deaths and marriages (although not as costly!), that is part of modern life.

    That makes it sounds like some sort of settee.

    Very pleased for you after all the uncertainty you've been through.

    Well,we could argue about the rights and wrongs of the current "B...." situation and the fact that I did not used to be considered a foreigner as such but I probably will soon be.
    However,let's not get into it on here,plenty other threads to have the never ending debate.

    Don't you already have some kind of paperwork in France @landaise?

    No, I don’t as it’s currently not necessary, a passport is considered enough as an EU or EEA citizen. A carte de séjour will become necessary when the U.K. exits the EU.
