Egyptian or not

Hello I have a question.
I married and Egyptian 5 years ago in Alexandria with a local judge .I have a marriage contract however we never registered it in the Embassy.So I got pregnant went back to America to have to have the baby .When I had the baby His name was put on.the birth certificate and the birth certificate was stamped by the American Consulate in America.After that I came back to Egypt things didn't workout between us and we now divorced for.the last 3 years.My question is Is my baby eligible for Egyptian citizenship since her father is Egyptian on the birth certificate however our marriage contract was not registered at the we were married.Please help

I think that would be easy if you were still married together but you said it was not registered and that make it even harder to prove it .... should ask an international lawyer about that ... i know there must be a way to do it .

I'm not sure but in cases like this and the 2 parties are Egyptian they file a case in family court to confirm the parent of the child and since his name is already mentioned they might ask for a DNA test once it's confirmed the DNA test she can get the Egyptian citizen ship but again you need to seek a professional lawyer

Check with the US Embassy in Cairo. I am sure they can give you the correct answer
