To obstinatrix, I’m pretty sure that law is one of the first laws made for citizenship by descent or from pre-1983 because I’ve read on the UK border site that either parent is okay now.
Bah it doesn’t look like I’m eligible for a British citizenship :( because it says my father needs to be a British citizen “at the time of my birth” and I’m not really sure how to know that…My father was born in Scotland but grew up in Canada, so Idk if he would still be considered a British citizen. All I have is his birth certificate saying he was born in Scotland. Agh
