What Brexit means for Poles in the UK
The results of the referendum concerning further membership of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in the European Union have left hardly anyone indifferent. Apart from numerous and unforeseen political, social and economic consequences Brexit will evidently affect the citizens of UK. They will forfeit their status of citizens of the European Union granted to every citizen of any member state by force of article 20 of the Treaty on Functioning of the European Union.
However not every citizen of the United Kingodm of Great Britain and Northern Ireland will unequivocally forfeit one's EU citizen status. Any UK citizen who has Polish ancestors (that did not forfeit their Polish citizenship) might initiate the proceedings to confirm one's Polish citizenship. Kancelaria Adwokacka Adwokat Piotr Stączek has longstanding experience in successfully representing clients during the Polish citizenship confirmation proceedings.
