(c) will he also able to get his French citizenship or passport? As his father wants to be French too. (I know that malaysian law doesnt allow this but I've heard a big number of people has done this before where they do the Malaysian registration first and later do the other part - for mixed married, at the end.. their child has dual citizenship)
My kids (and even my wife) had no problem getting a French passport even if they had another one (not a Malaysian one) because France does not ask one to renounce his citizenship to get the French citizenship.
In any case, you should go to the Embassy with you Malaysian birth certificate and they will get done for you the French birth certificate. This is an essential paper to get, because even if you don't make the passport now, since he/she will be registered as the child of a French citizen.
You'd better anyway directly check with the Consulate (as in my case, even if the country of origin of my wife does not really allow dual citizenship, she was nto Malaysian), the 2 ladies in charge are very helpful and they are the only one
who can give the exact reply and that you can trust 100%. I think your husband should ring them to check, and you will the reply in 5 minutes!
