Being domiciled in the UK
You’re domiciled in the UK if it’s where you have your permanent home or it’s the home you plan to return to after a period abroad. A baby’s domicile is where the parents have their domicile, or the father’s domicile if two different countries are involved. When the child grows up, she can change domicile by moving abroad. A spouse who comes to live in the UK with a husband or wife, or a partner coming to the UK following a civil partnership, doesn’t have to become domiciled, here but usually will because the couple is intending to live here together. Being domiciled in the UK is not the same as being a resident or having nationality or citizenship.
