My son was born in Netherlands outside of marriage or registered partnership. Father (Bulgarian) has disappeared with no contact. Is there a possibility to remove the Bulgarian nationality & maintain British (mothers nationality) only? The father has zero contact & makes no financial contribution
It is very unlikely that you will be able to renounce the child's Bulgarian citizenship for them. Almost no country in the world allows such a thing, and those that do allow minors to renounce have strict requirements to ensure that the child is making an independent decision and understands the ramifications. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find an English translation of specific Bulgarian nationality law with regards to renunciation by minors. There may not even be a provision.
British nationality is not affected in any case.
