    In your profile you state that English is your native language. Is this true?

    The idea is that you post your thoughts and someone helps. How else is anyone going to know what you want to say? I can try though.

    Hello home office!

    You probably know me, I'm Jacob. Please give me a work permit!

    Thanks!
    Jacob.
    BTW, don't use that.

    My poor excuse for humor has failed. I think you need to post what you think you should send–your ideas, your thoughts, what you think is important–and others will assist you in fixing any problems.

    Please use capitals where appropriate and write "you", not "u".

    Jacob, you must write the first draft because we don't know what the letter needs to say.

    Pretend you are talking to the person who will read your letter.

    What would you say to him or her? Just think through that and then write it down and then we can help you with your grammar, etc.

    Please DO make proper use of capital letters, punctuation, and spelling, to the best of your ability.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I have got a son with a British partner. My son gonna be on 8th April 4 years old.I would like to build a better future for my son. I can not live with my partner, because she becomes income support.I can not provide a basic life for my self without working how could i build a better future for my son? I don`t know how can i explain to my son that I don`t have a Right to work in this country just because I am a asylum seeker! I am now young man and I have got a lot of energy for work, after few years I getting old then I could not work as I can now.also i need to proof myself to my son that i do care for him.I promise as soon as i get a work permit I will start to work strait away as I am very active person and I know few skills .
    I will send you a copy of my son`s Births certificate.
    I would be grateful if you would issue me a work permit.

    your faithfully
    my signature
    Jacob A... date dd,mm,yy
