  1. I did read through it. It doesn't appear to imply that the penalty fee increases depending on how long you've waited. Was that your impression? Either way, I have to pay a penalty fee so it doesn't look like it matters if it is done now or in ten years. The money isn't the issue. It also says "The parentage of the father is established by marriage to the mother, acknowledgment of parentage or by a court issue." I would assume signing the birth certificates would count. I have those in original If not, I suppose I could go through court. I imagine he's still in the country somewhere working. I know I should call, but I haven't made a decision yet. I don't want them to ask for details and all of a sudden it's irreversible. I suppose I was looking for any reasons of why we needed to go ahead with this now, like if they would loose their ability to claim after a number of years, or if it was pointless waiting because whether or not you claim, you're already a citizen, so if they ever visit, they might get in trouble if they don't claim.
  2. Is there any reason to do this now though? Can I wait and ask them when they are older? I mean, I understand the 60 day thing but we are well past that by now.
  3. Hello, I have a question about registering children born abroad. I gave birth 3 years ago to twin baby boys. I'm British/French and their dad is Turkish. We never got married but he signed their birth certificates. He walked out just a few weeks after they were born, and I've never heard from him. I don't know if he registered the boys with the consulate or not, and I've tried contacting him, but nothing. It's been almost three years, nothing. Nothing from him, nothing from his mates, nothing from his family. I was thinking of registering the boys myself, but I don't have any of their dad's original documents, just photocopies, kimilik, now expired passport, license. Is that enough? Should I do it? Can they boys do it when they are adults or is that too late? Is there any reason to do it now? Thank you
