Am I a UK citizen?
 
Hello! I am new to the forum and unsure where to start! Thanks so much for the add.
I am a US citizen. My mother was born in the UK in the 50's and moved to the US when she was young, has dual citizenship. Can I gain UK citizenship? She was not married at the time I was born in the 70's. I would like to move one day to the UK. Also my son, would he qualify for any citizenship as well?
I really appreciate the help.
Thank you!

Hi, welcome to BE.

I've moved your thread to our UK citizenship section, where the forum pros will be able to tell you if you're already a UK citizen (or have a route to it).

Best of luck.

Did your mother ever marry your father?

Yes, eventually.

You’re not currently a British citizen but you can apply to be registered as one.

https://www.gov.uk/apply-citizenship...rn-before-1983

Unfortunately a similar route is not available to your son.

Thank you very much for the information. Bummer for my son as he was hopeful also.
I am looking at registering for my citizenship. I need my mothers birth certificate, so I have requested that online. Do I need to send our actual passports in or just copies? Seems hard to be without my passport for how long? My mother does have her expired British passport but would hate to have to send all these in.

I would send your mother’s expired passport but only provide colour photocopies of any current passports with a note saying you need to retain the original for travel but that they are available on request.
