Am I eligible for "right to abode" in UK?

Asked over 1 year ago - Clearwater, FL

My mother was born in the UK and was a UK citizen (even served in the military during WWII) but became a war bride and moved to the US in the 40's. She finally became a US citizen in the early 90's. I was born in the US and lived here all my life. Am I eligible for a "right to abode" in the UK or a dual citizenship?

But the attorney to help would be someone versed in UK or British law.

    Answered . You most likely could be, but this is a question to be posed to UK immigration attorneys.
    We here at AVVO are U.S. immigration attorneys and know (almost) nothing about UK immigration or citizenship laws.
