Confused over Child Policy Registration

Post by 2017Freedom » Fri Jul 07, 2017 4:11 pm

Hi all

In this forum I was reading that if One of the parents has ILR then the child can register as British but when I asked my solicitor, he said one of the parents has to be British (not ILR) for the child to be able to register as British - Does anyone know what the truth please ?

Thank You

If you had held ILR (or citizenship) when your son was born, he would have been British at birth, and you could applied for a passport for him straight away. That may be what your solicitor was thinking of when s/he advised you.

Once you have ILR, you can register your son (assuming he's still under the age of 18) as a British citizen with form MN1. So to answer your question, no, it doesn't matter what sort of leave to remain you had at the time he was born, so long as you have indefinite leave to remain once you register him.
