Thread: Dont know if I am a citizen

  1. #1
    my friends sister is wondering if she is a citizen. Her parents filed for citizenship when she was 17 yrs. (this happened around 25 yrs ago). They are married. Her mother recieved her citizenship first but her father recieved it 4 months later and by this time she is over 18yrs all. How can she find out if she is a citizen-would the FOIA have this info. She has recieved conflicting info from different sources-some saying that both your parents have to be a citizen in order to pass it on to you and the fact that she was over 18 when her dad recieved his citizenship-therefore she is not. Three of her siblingsd later recieved their citizenship through her parents but they were all under 18 at the time. Thanks for the reply.

    Only one parent needs to be a USC to apply for children. Are her parents still alive? I would hope they know what her status is. If she was included on her mom's application for citizenship, she should have received derivative citizenship when her mom was approved.

    If you talk to any of the USCIS person he/she will start from the beging. from the date of arrival of her parents to dig out the file...
    along with there Natualization Certificate # date and place of issuance.

    Just to make sure her name was in the Form N-400 at that time most of the parents have not inculded the names of there childern in the past.
    At the same time she must have her old Passports to show the arrival in to US.

    Like ProudUSC said Provided her name was inculed at the time of Naturalization and the child was in the U.S. at that time...
    You still need to proof from USCIS to apply for the U.S. Passport.
    Which is under the U.S. Department of State....

    Her dad is deceased and her mom is alive-she is 76 yrs old and does not remember anything about the application. She was living in the USA when both parents filed for citizenship having lived here since she was 8yrs old. It was yrs later when they were adults that her siblings checked into it and found out they were citizens. Would she be able to find out from foia at Dept of homeland security if she is a citizen. If she files for a passport-what info is needed? Thanks for info

    Easiest way is to apply for a lost certificate and state that you received your citizenship through your parents.

    Besides filing the N-600 form is there any other way to find out if she was listed on her mother's citizenship application. Would a visit to the immigration center or request to FOIA help her. I guess she did not want to spend the money to N600 only to find out that she is not a citizen-Any suggestions. She does have copies of her parents citizenship papers.
