What should the parent of a new baby born in the USA do or what does the
baby do (when it grows up) to claim U.S. citizenship if the parent moves
back to the UK and the grown up baby is 18 - is this the age when the
U.S. born child applies for or otherwise can obtain a U.S. passport in
their own right?
