Hello I will assist today
The father cannot be forced to has his name on the register if he chooses not to, whether non British or indeed British.
You can register the birth yourself.
The farther can register the baby under his name with you.
The babies birth is registered in the U.K.
if the father also wants to register or the law of his country says he must, then he could also register there as well if they allow that.
If baby is born here and you are British , then so will baby.
That does not matter. As long as one parent is British that is what counts.
The baby was born in the U.K., therefore must be registered here. If the father wants his name on the birth cert that is up to him.
what the father does after that is also up to him. But baby must be registered here. Fathers name does not have to be on the birth registry in the UK
I have fully answered your original question above.
The baby is British, you are British, therefore you can apply for a British passport.
If the father is not on the birth certificate it would be harder for his to apply for it for the baby, but you can. Unfortunately, the father cannot have it all his own way. If the father wants a passport for the baby from his country where ever that is, he would need to do what is needed in that country
I am sorry if you don’t understand.
I have fully answered that. The baby was born here. You are British, therefore that makes the baby British and the Baby can have a British passport. In English law, it is not important what the father wants or does not want. The father can have his name on the Birth certificate if he wants it on, if he does not that is up to him. The reasons why he does not, have no relevance in English law.
Can I assist further, I understand this may be very worrying for you, and want to ensure you are happy in what to do.
