United Kingdom - Passport & Nationality - NEW - British Citizenship by Discretion (Birth in UK after 1982 - 4LM)
New legislation to address gender discrimination in the old law has been passed in June 2022. Accordingly, it should be possible to lodge an application if one can demonstrate that - had it not been for gender discrimination in the old law - you would (or could) have British nationality in the modern day. Based on your family tree, it appears that such an application would be successful. While the theory is complex, this solution broadly requires the following:
- Applicant born in the UK after 31 December 1982;
- Applicant's mother born in a qualifying country;
- Applicant's mother born between 1 January 1948 and 31 December 1987; AND
- Applicant's mother had a grandparent (either of her grandmothers or her maternal grandfather) born in the UK.
