Re: Pregnant American, father Swiss, not married, how do we proceed?

Sorry st2lemans,

you misunderstood - I was simply saying that the nationality of the child for the Swiss authorities is American. Don't suppose the Americans will refuse the child nationality - mabye if they know the father is Swiss and he might be in banking - no probably not

Again, it depends of whether the US parent has lived in the US for the required number of years (and yes, there is a required number of years).

If not, no US citizenship (unless the child is born in the US).

Re: Pregnant American, father Swiss, not married, how do we proceed?

It seems there are more options in Switzerland. Our friend has so called "visitor father rights" which means he is entitled to visit the baby on certain days. He is also obliged to pay the maintenance, but not quite as high as a "normal father". He has no other rights whatsoever (deciding upon leaving the country, hospital treatment of the baby ect.) and cannot even try to be recognized as a "normal father". The mother has to sign the papers first (they were not married). He is absolutely commited to the baby, no criminal record ect. I was more than surprised to hear such a thing is possible in the civilised world but it seems to be the case!
