  • citizenship form MN1

    Hi, here my question:
    my husband is English by descendant ( his mother became English through naturalization) not born in UK.
    I am EU citizen with settled status
    we are been living in UK for 6 years.
    can my 17 years old son apply for the citizenship ? He would love to do it before turning 18.
    Thank you

    Hi,

    Who was not born in the UK? Your husband or his mother?

    Am I right in assuming he wasn't born in the UK?

    The process is quite different for minors (under 18), but we need to know the answers to the above questions.

      Yes, my husband is not born in UK but the mother was British at the time of his birth.
      the mom got the citizenship by marriage in the late ‘60s .
      she was not married with his dad when he was born.
      this is why he get the citizenship by descendant.
      Now we are settled in the UK.
      I got the settled status .
      can my son ask for the citizenship?

        Louis M Is MN1 registration the only way in view of the above? Or is there an alternative?

          which year was your husband born? Was your son born outside of the UK?

                  Unfortunately this is a forum glitch when attempting to quote our lawyer's posts, we are working to try and sort it out, would you mind posting again, this time without quoting? Sorry about that.

                      Yes you should certainly have good grounds to register your child as British. Which section, and whether by entitlement or discretion, depends on the specific facts of the case.

                      He might have an entitlement to register under sections 3(5) or under 3(2) - and thereby obtain British citizenship otherwise than by descent.

                      Failing that he would have a good case for registration at discretion under 3(1) - this would provide citizenship by descent if the father was British at the time of your son's birth (which I presume to be the case).

                      All of the above done on form MN1.

                      ** I was considering whether your husband definitely has citizenship by descent, rather than the stronger form ( as if your husband has the strong form of otherwise than by descent then your son is automatically British). From what I can tell this is probably correct although it would require research beyond what I can provide here.

                          It does sound like a case where you would benefit from legal advice, the details of our group lawyers, including Louis who very kindly responded above, are found here: Lawyers - UKCEN Citizenship and Residence for European Nationals and their families

                          Louis's details are linked to from his signature, here: Louis M - UKCEN Citizenship and Residence for European Nationals and their families

                            Honestly, I'm not sure. I'm reluctant to push you towards getting advice on whether your son automatically is British - as my inclination is that he probably isn't, and so, if you paid for this advice then you might see this as wasted money. But it's up to you. Sorry if that's not very helpful.

                              JoLion If you decide to just go ahead with the MN1 registration, you may want to look at this post: Registration of UK born children as British - forms MN1 and T - UKCEN Citizenship and Residence for European Nationals and their families
