Immigration: New registration processes come into force…..
From the 6th April 2015 there are new registration processes coming into force in respect of registering children born outside of the UK to British fathers.
Before 1 July 2006 a child could only obtain citizenship through his or her father if the parents were married. The law changed on 1 July 2006 to allow a person to acquire citizenship through his or her father, irrespective of whether the parents were married, subject to proof of paternity. That change was not made retrospective.
The new provisions will create a registration route for those born outside of the UK before 1 July 2006 whose natural father was not married to their mother at the time of their birth.
