    Isn't that rather obvious? naturalization certificate, citizenship certificate, or birth certificate depending on how he beccame a citizen.

    There is also his residence issue. Prior to your birth, a certain number of years of residence for your father in US is required. Number of residence years depends on your age because several laws were enacted in different times. You have to prove that as well.

    What do you mean with obtain these documents? You father should have those documents in his possession anyway.
    You can send in report cards, military ID cards (you said he wasn't in the military, so I just mention it as an example), graduations diploma, notarized affidavits of ministers stating he attended Sunday School for a certain period of time, attendance cefiticate of Boy Scouts and so on.
    Usually people keep these papers so your father should have them somewhere. Otherwise your father could sign a POA, and you could get these documents on your own.
    Good luck

    Well I have only met my father once in my life
    I dont think he had any schooling after the age of 14. which the form states 5yrs of which, the parent must be older than 14,hes not religious,
    he did not seem like the kind of person to have saved his report card. What is a POA?
    Does that give me access to his personal matters? Employeement history
    Thanks for your time

    the 5 yrs has to be prior to me being born
    I was born in 73 he was born in he was 29 when I was born

    POA is the power of attorney, and yes you could access nearly every document. Since you have met your father just once, I am not sure he would sign one, but it wouldn't hurt to ask him.
    I thought, you had to attend school at least until you are 16 yrs. old.
    It seems like you try to acquire your citizenship without your father's help; that will be difficult.
