You mentioned that the boy will be traveling back to the UK at least once a year. This is looking a bit far ahead but sfg's post reminds me that should you naturalize while the boy is still under 16 years of age you may be in for quite a treat when you try to get him a US passport.

You mean if the son is under the age of 18 when/if the mother naturalizes.

Up until the age of 18 the child automatically becomes a US citizen as well as long as they have a green card.

If he has broadband Internet, you might suggest that he signs up with Vonage -- free calls to the UK (NOTE: this does NOT include calls to cell phones) for a flat rate of $31/month. I was going to ditch my home phone until I discovered this little gem.

Plus, once you come here, it will allow *you* to call family & friends back home for free (well, not counting the $31/month, of course).

DISCLAIMER (of sorts): I am NOT associated with Vonage in any way, except for being a happy customer of theirs.

I agree about Vonage. I use it and it's awesome.

For £8 (yes eight) pounds a month I get free, unlimited calls to the USA, including cell phones. I also get free calls throughout Europe and a lot of other countries, too. There are no hidden charges.

Skype is good but Vonage, imo, is better because with Vonage you can use a regular phone, just hook it up with the gubbins that come with it. Also, you can have a 'local' number which you can take with you anywhere in the world. You take your little Vonage box with you when you travel, hook it up to a computer, hook a phone up to it, and away you go, people can call you as though they were phoning you in the UK.

Good call (no pun intended), I hadn't even thought of the UK version of Vonage (maybe because my fiancee can't ditch her home phone because that's how she *gets* her Internet, via DSL, so we dismissed that option pretty quickly).

But that's cool that you can do it on either side of the pond. ;-]

No, I mean under 16 years of age. Sixteen being the age when it's no longer necessary to get the approval of both parents for the child to be issued a US passport.

An exception would be if one parent has papers showing sole custody, which this parent does not have. Another exception would be if only one parent's name is on the BC.
