Hi,

 

The child can apply for British Citizenship once they reach the age of 10 by using application form T. See here for more details: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/britishcitizenship/eligibility/registration/borninuk/

 

Good luck

thank u but u didn't answer me about the parents status.. they have no freedom now because they are illegals.

There is currently a Home Office discretionary policy (DP5/96) known as the 7 year child concession under which they could try and apply for lawful status as they have a child who has lived in the UK continously for at least 7 years.

 

They should get an immigration expert to assist them with their application if necessary.

 

Good luck
