If You were born in France and your mother was a French citizen how do you get a French passport?

If you are a French citizen, living in mainland France: apply to your local "sous-préfecture" or "préfecture". If you are a French citizen, living abroad, report to the local consulate or embassy. If you need to establish your citizenship, report to these same locations, with documents proving the French citizenship of your mother. Once your mother's citizenship established, you will be asked some more documents proving that you are her son or daughter. This step being cleared, you will be able to get a French ID at the same office.

Can a child automatically be a US citizen if they are born to a parent who is a US citizen because their parent was a US citizen?

It depends- if the father and grandfather have lived in the U.S., then yes the child would be a citizen. However, if the father has lived most iof his life outside the U.S., then it is highly unlikely that the child would be considered a U.S. citizen- even though his father and grandfather were U.S. citizens. Example: Grandfather was born and raised in the U.S. [GRANDFATHER IS A US CITIZEN] Grandfather moves to France at age 20. Grandfather marries a French lady and has a son [SON IS CONSIDERED TO BE A US CITIZEN] Son has lived his entire life and at age 20, the son marries a local French lady. Son's wife gives birth to a girl [THE GIRL IS NOT A US CITIZEN]. This is true even though her grandfather and father were U.S. citizens.
