Default Dad UK/Mom USA.

I am divorced from my usa ex, and a UK citizen born and bred. We have a son together who lives with me .
He was born in UK, now 12yrs old holding Brit passport.
I recently tried to get his mother to help him get dual nationality,which I felt was his Birthright, and as she has contributed precious little to his life till now except sadness*(she lives in UK).
I have her social security number and an endouring power of attorney,also details of her birthplace .
Can I apply on his behalf to The US Consulate in London without his mother's help. and what will it get ME.

Was your son's birth ever registered with the London Consulate? This will need to be done before he can apply for a US passport.

The following webpage on the London Consulate's website should get you started:

Reporting The Birth of a Child to U.S. Citizen Parent(s) in the UK
  • Application Requirements for the Report of Birth
  • Additional Requirements for the Passport Application
and what will it get ME.
Well, I guess it would give you a son who gets a shiny new US passport and money missing from your bank account so he can have it. I don't understand your question. You'll have to be more specific.

Your son is already a US citizen. Follow the instructions kindly pointed out by Jenney and get the paperwork taken care of.

He should not enter the US without a US passport.

Don't forget he needs to file for Selective Service at 18 and also file US tax returns.

the big block of text with the hyper link was a bit of a give away I would have thought.

and being a USC, your kid was always liable to sign up for SS at 18 and filing of US taxes.

There is no National Service in the US. He will be required to register for Selective Service. He must register at age 18.

He will need to file taxes when he earns money unless his earnings are below a certain amount. If he's doing a paper round at the moment, I wouldn't worry about it.

Let me qoute from my original thread
" recently tried to get his mother to help him get dual nationality,which I felt was his Birthright, and as she has contributed precious little to his life till now except sadness*(she lives in UK).
I have her social security number and an endouring power of attorney,also details of her birthplace .
Can I apply on his behalf to The US Consulate in London without his mother's help.
his note appears at the foot of the first paragraph?
Note: If only one parent is a U.S. citizen, and that parent is not presently in this country, please contact this office for further instructions.
This is the position.
Now can anyone shed light on the question I posed . Which was ?

I think it would be hard for you to do this without the mother's help. She would have to provide some documents - including her current passport and her birth certificate.
Also are you sure your son actually is or is eligible to be a USC? Depending on the length of time his mother was living outside of the USA before he was born he may not necessarily be one?.

You missed out the bit 'and what will it get ME'. What exactly do you mean by this?
