Can a Thai Lady Claim Child Support from a British Passport Holder

Recommended Posts

My rented girl friend has a girl from a British man. The biological father is in the birth certificate and confirmed by a DNA test. After the DNA test, he fled. The mother has a copy of his passport. Can she claim child support in the UK embassy? If so, what is the process? She is also interested in registering the child as a British citizen. Can she do that without father's cooperation and present whereabouts except facebook profile.

Ring UK Embassy

What is the phone number? I assume I cannot call because I am not a party to the victim. I would ask my friend to call. They should have somebody who understands Thai. She won't be able to speak in fluent English to present her case.

I recently had advice from this guy (on the British Embassy list of qualified lawyers). He is very knowledgeable about UK family law.

 

Might be worth sending him an email with your questions.

The answer will still be 'no'.

HTH

From the Gov.UK website:

You’re automatically a British citizen if you were born outside the UK and all of the following apply:

  • you were born on or after 1 July 2006
  • your mother or father was a British citizen when you were born
  • your British parent could pass on their citizenship to you

How does that alter the reply given in #7?

Wrong tree as far as the Op's question is concerned.

She is also interested in registering the child as a British citizen.

Without the fathers cooperation that will be a struggle. My reply was primarily aimed at the CSA aspect of the OP.

CSA was disbanded in 2012.

The links on the page almost certainly lead enquirers to whatever the current procedure is; not that it applies in los.

 

Making a child maintenance arrangement

Key Phrase: 

If one of the parents lives outside the UK

You cannot apply if the child and the parent with main day-to-day care live outside the UK.

The service can only help if the paying parent works outside the UK for a British organisation.
