Gents, I have a question that I can't get an answer to so far, I have rung the British Consulate and they put me onto the embassy, the man I need to talk to is never in, my e.mails get returned with a standard rely mail with general information which doesn't answer my question. I have searched the net and found confusing data all which applies to blokes from the Hindu Kush who want to open a restaurant in the UK and import half the bloody tribe as dependents. Frankly I need help and someone here must know the answer. I have been with my spanish partner out here in Catalunya for 23 years, the last 20 fairly long ones, and we have a 22year-old daughter, with me definitely registered as the father. However for a variety of reasons we have never married. Originally when I tried to register my daughter as British, I was told that the Mother counted but the father didn't if they were unmarried at the time of birth. A little while back I was told that the rules had changed and that my daughter could go through a process to get British nationality. At the time we didn't as money was involved and money was tight. Now we would like to get that nationality for her but I just can't find out if she is eligible. Could anyone be so kind as to either inform me of the answer or please direct me to where I can find the regulations applicable. Your help would be welcome after the Embassy experience. Thanks in advance. Dwarf.
