Justice is a liberty, not a choice

If a child is born to a settled person or a British Citizen, they are automatically British. If a child is not born British, it is possible to become subsequently registered as British after one of their parents have acquired settled status in the UK. This essentially means that children may apply to become registered as British Citizens if and when either parent becomes settled in the UK since their birth.

It is important to note that a child cannot be registered as British if the child is born British already, so it is essential to establish the immigration status of either parent at the time of the child’s birth before determining which application should be made for the child.
