Child Registration is the best process to acquire British citizenship for your children to ensure their best interests. It will provide them with all the rights an existing British citizen should have. Under the British Nationality Act 1981, there are different provisions entitling a kid to get registered as a citizen of the UK. If your children are adults, like 18 years or over, they have to apply as an adult.

Since there are several documents to provide to apply for registration, the process can be quite overwhelming and complicated. Let our child registration lawyers help you out! 

Our expert child registration solicitors will help you throughout the procedure to complete the whole application on your behalf while representing the case in the best interests of your children. For a free initial meeting, you can contact us today!

Further Information

When your children are under 18, being a parent, you have to apply for British citizenship registration for your child. It is advisable to have an idea of the English language exam for the process, like the standard of B1 hearing and speaking according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. You should have an approved test certificate for a child’s British citizenship registration application.

When you cannot afford the fee to apply for British citizenship registration, go for a ‘fee waiver’. But for this, you have to show your insufficient savings and income for making the payment for the fee and essential food and rent costs. In this case, you have to provide some vital documents representing your earnings and expenses for the last six months, like:

  • Utility bills
  • Pay slips
  • Bank statements
  • Tenancy agreements

British citizenship for children is the best way to acquire all the rights of a British citizen for your kids. You should know that you can apply for the registration even if your child was born outside the UK if you and your spouse have resided for three years in the UK. Also, you do not have to go for all these procedures if your kids were born between 1 January 1983 and 30 June 2006. But if they are more than 10 years old, they must have good character to be eligible for the registration application.
