Re: Are my sons British ?

By birth in Australia before 1986, you are an Australian citizen. Because of your British mother, you have Right of Abode in the UK.

Re: British Citizenship for my son

Yes if he was born in the UK. If he was born abroad, he is expected to hold ILR before applying for registration OR give reasons for discretion to be exercised in this regards. As a general principle, the expectation is that there should be a staged approach to permanent residence and citizenship. T...

Re: US military children born in England

If the children were born in the UK before 1983, they were born British citizens otherwise than by descent (Section 4 of the British Nationality Act 1948).

Their children would be British citizens by descent, wherever in the world they were born.

Re: Ancestry to British passport whilst in UK

My understanding is that your citizenship registration is not retrospective, you are only British from the date you attend your ceremony following your form UKF application. So the three years already here might not be relevant to your sons registration as you were not British for that period. And ...

The Shirley McCarthy judgment was made by the ECJ on almost precisely the same point (of a Northern Irish lady wanting to engage EU free movement law in spite of having never exercised treaty rights) in 2010.

As mentioned above, there is no limit on how much you can work, alongside your studies, if you are a Brit...

Be aware that the customer enquiries for UKV&I is outsourced and that you will likely get different responses to the same question if you call them more than once.

For births in England and Wales, you can apply for a replacement/copy birth certificate from the General Registry Office. There are equivalent bodies that offer the same services in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Re: Wedding in Italy

Are you sure that they were asking for a birth certificate? Perhaps what they were asking for was a certificate of no impediment to a marriage, i.e. a certificate that your partner is not currently in a marriage.

Also, was your British partner born in the UK?
