Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
It is form N208:
And Form N244
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Its an order for disclosure.
That is form N244 - that is an application notice (application for disclosure)
But you need to have a disclosure claim in order to get it.
Does that clarify?
My name is ***** ***** I have been a solicitor for more than 35 years.
Where was your father born and is he named on your birth certificate
Where is he at the moment?
On what basis was he entitled to be Registered as a British citizen and when did it happen?
Have you applied using the form available from the National Records Office?
Those details are not mandatory on the form - have you tried and failed?
So you used this form
and they drew a blank - is that correct (this is important)
What wording did they use (also important)
OK - so how will they be able to trace the records at the Passport Office>
Do you have the full details which will identify your father from any other person with the same name otherwise you will face the same problems as you did with the national archives.
I assume you do not have the passport number?
There is no Court application that you can make - you simply do not have enough details to do so
The Passport Office will need the same information as the National Archives - a possible date or year of birth
You will have better chance if you submit repeated applications using the form above and putting successive years in
The forms above will NOT assist you at all - neither of them
This is not about Data Protection it is about the fact that without another identifying factor they cannot find the document that you want
You can send both the forms to the court if you wish - but without the year of birth it is not going to give you the information that you need I am sorry
So in fact you are asking the passport office to access details of your siblings records to identify the details of your father.
Have you asked your sibling to access this informtaion for you?
Ha syour brother written and asked for copies of his OWN records (not those of your mutual father)
There is another option.
You and yor brother eax=ch have birth certificates giving the same details is that correct?
Before you take the court option you need to write again with certified copies of your siblings birth certificate and passport and your applictaion and ask then to complete their own enquiries and issue your passport
At the same time write a formal letter to the Passport Office setting out the situation and pointing out that you are seeking disclosure of the applictaion form used by your sibling to gain their UK passport, and that your sibling consents to this (send a copy of his written consent)
