Child born 29 years ago in UK of UK mother and US father. Father abandoned child just before his birth. Parents were married at time. Child now seeks US citizenship, but needs co operation from American father whom he's never met. He's not having any luck. Has tracked him down in new York, but he refuses to answer calls or reply to e mails. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Mother received no child support or maintenance ever.
I agree, but more information is needed. The situation is complicated, can prove costly and potentially futile. The Father's certified birth certificate, perhaps even DNA may be required. A competent and costly private investigator may also need to bridge the gap. The exact date of birth may be an issue due to a law made effective on 2/27/2001. What is his birth date?
