Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hi thank you for your message, I understand. Yes you are still connected, you should not need to show your original passport. If you can show you have a current valid UK passport from before the child was born that should be sufficient. I recommend you contact the passport office and speak to an adviser this morning to see what alternatives they say you can contact them here: https://www.gov.uk/passport-advice-line
There is an instant chat service as well as a phone line. I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
