Unfortunately, you will need to speak to a French lawyer. We can answer questions based on English and Welsh law.

I will however try to do some research and come back to you if I have found anything relevant for you.

thank you so much, in this site. Is there any French Lawyer ?
Expert:  Marcinlondon replied 12 days ago.

I do not think there is.

Expert:  Marcinlondon replied 12 days ago.

According to Le droit du sang, they can claim French citizenship based on descent, i.e. based on your, as a parent, French citizenship, but according to my research, as they live in the UK, this would have to be done through the French Consulate.

It may be possible to sort it out in France but I am afraid you will need to speak to a French lawyer. I hope this was somehow helpful.
