    In order to get accurate answer, you need to provide ALL details relevant to this issue. Were you legally married to the child's father? In what country the child was born.. This is important... if the child was born overseas, not in Germany, have you and your husband report "birth of German citizen overseas" at the nearest German Embassy? Etc.

    We were engaged but did not get legally married. He did however sign the birth certificate. My son was born in the uk and I hold trinidadian nationality. I contacted the german mission in london who advised me the child is entitled to a german passport but I have no contact with the father to prove this via his passport/ birth certificate. His parents and sister still communicate with me and I wonder if they can help.

    The problem is you're not legally married. So in this case, he must be the one who contact the German Embassy... this can be done before the child reaches the age of 18, but the sooner the better.

    The fact that he signed on the child's birth certificate is not a legal binding, but you may use this issue to pursue legal obligation on behalf of your child. Contact an attorney.
