      Stop trying to force things, it wont work!

      You are not a US citizen by birth even if you get the most expensive lawyer, they will just take your money and run because you are trying to fight something thats so easily laid out in the constitution.

      If I were you, I would get a 30 minute (free?) consultation first with this lying laywer/liar and see how he/she thinks you will get your green card, before committing large amounts of money to something that will obviously fail.

      By the way, if you said that the lawyer said that 'he could help me first get the green card and then the nationality', it means that he will not try to help you on the basis of being a citizen, but rather he will look into ways to first get a greencard which could mean the one of many ways of becoming a US permanent resident.

      He seems to see also that you are not a US citizen at birth, so as you can see, you are alone on that aspect, no one else thinks you are a citizen at birth.

      And if you are so inclined to think you are one, why dont you just ask your father whether you are a US citizen? He definitely knows you are not one.

      You need to look into ways of getting a greencard pure and simple instead of trying to waste time and money to prove you are a US citizen which you are not and have never been!

        I am not trying to force things out. I just wanted to know what people think about this and give me advice on whether to spend my money on lawyers or not. Actually, there is a case of a daughter of a diplomate who got the U.S. nationality. She took a lawyer and then after two years she got it but this was long time ago... For this reason, I am wondering if I could get it as well.
        Anyway, if I can t get it, I will at least want to have a green card, how long does it take and what is the eligibility for it?

          It would help if you would tell us more about 'the other case' and tell us where to read that from, and also for you to tell us if thats identical to your case.

          As for how to get a green card, thats too general a question.

            Well I don t know where u could read that from. This lady was a daughter of a diplomate who was working with my father. At that time, my father didn t apply for the US Citizenship for my sister and myself since he prefers us to keep the European one.I wanted to get in touch with my father ex colleague so he could provide me more details about it, unfortunately he s not a diplomate anymore and we don t know how to get in touch with him.

              Dont try to use something you cannot back up, because it cant help your case in any way. is that a deal?

              Well the law is not on your side in your case and proving your case will be an uphill task-to waste money if you ask me.

              Why dont you focus on getting a greencard instead?


              • #22
                yes I think that would be the best option. I ve never been in the States since 1988, would that affect my application?

                  You need to have a basis for applying for a green card, Jessica, either family or employment sponsorship. In rare instances, such as a world class talent, you may be able to self-sponsor.

                  Nowadays, most employment-based green card holders seem to have started out as H1-Bs, but there's no guarantee of sponsorship.

                        I keep reading and reading... Jessiaca, what part of "NO" dont you understand???
                        You have to apply for Green Card first, but you have to have basis for that too.

                            This is an issue long debaded in circuit courts and decided upon. The answer is a clear no, you are not a US citizen even if you were born in the US and lived here all your life if your parents had diplomatic credentials. There's nothing any lawyer can do about it cause any argument would be defeated by the fact that your parents held diplomatic credentials. Period. You should explore other options such as naturalization, if possible, based on your residence, consult your attorney for more info.

                              Dear Jessica: no matter what some ethically challenged immigration attorney tells you (for a price) if your parents were in diplomatic status when you were born, you are NOT (N...O....T) an American citizen---- and that's the way it is and has been for decades.
                              If this dirtbag attorney is trying to sell you a different tune, do not buy. In fact, this idea of the sleazy attorney talking about residency already demonstrates that you are not a citizen and cannot be one now....otherwise, this charlatan would be talking about a blue passport.
                              Stop whining; get over it; you cannot change our laws just because you think you should be the exception to the rule (and fire that dumba$$ attorney!!).

                                I have been reading all what is posted here and sorry to say none have come with any answer to your question.
                                1 Your visa class was A-2, as immediate family member of a visa Class A-1, Which is issued to Anbassadors, Public Minister, Career Diplomat or Cossular Officr and Immediate family.
                                Diplomatic Visa issued Under Sec.101(a)(15)(A)(i), 101(a)(15)(A)(ii),or 101(a)(15)(A)(iii) of INA.
                                If a child born to any diplomat in the United States he/she if listed on the Blue List of the Department of State, then the child is not the US citizen. in some cases the child was granted the citienship.
                                According to the INA SEC. 301[8 U.S.C. 1401] The following shall be nationals and citizens of the United Statesat birth:
                                (a) a person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof;
                                (b) a person born in the United States to a member of an Indian, Eskimo, Aleutian, or other aboriginal trive: Provided, that the granting of citizenship under this subsection shall not in any manner impair or otherwise affect the right of such person to tribal or other property;
                                The INA has no Section of the law to denial of her citizenship. Accept for the Blue list maintained by the DOS. I have not seen any law in this regards.

                                I have a question to all who claims a US Citizenship.
                                Dot you need a visa to come to United States?
                                If you do not need a visa, then why jessica needs a visa to come to US?
                                Please provide with section of the INA/CFR,

                                Publicus: Some countries have duel citizenship, that is not an International laws, show me the section of the law, which say's to abide by the International Law, Every country has its Immigration laws, rules and regulations.
