    Your citizenship status largely depends on if and when your father naturalized. If he's always been a US citizen, but wasn't born or raised in the US, his ability to pass that on to you depends on the laws in effect at the time of his birth.

      At a guess, you're not automatically a US citizen. Most likely the laws in effect at the time of your father's birth required that he live in the US for some years before the age of 14 or something like that in order to be able to pass citizenship on to you automatically. To be sure, you'd need to know what year your father was born in, then check the USCIS website for the relevant law.

        I have already said this before and, and now again I am giving the complete text of the law (INA) which governs the citizenship of child of a USC. This law should help you in applying for your citizenship. the question will come up as to your age of being 19 years now, then this case will shift to the unawearness case and it should be resolved in your favour to grant you the citizenship.

        SEC.332(a) A parent who is a citizen of the United States may apply to the Attorney General for a certificate of Citizenship on behalf of a child born outside the United States. The Attorney General shall issue such a certificate of citizenship upon proof to the satisfaction of the Attorney General that the following conditions have been fulfilled:
        (1) At least one parent is a citizen of the
        United states, whether by birth or
        naturalization.
        (2) The child is physically present in the
        United States pursuant to a lawfull
        admission.
        (3) The child is under the age of 18 years and
        in the legal custody of the citizen
        parent.
        (4) If the citizen parent is an adoptive parent of the child,the child was adopted by the citiznparent before the child reached the age of 16 years and the child meets the requirements for being a child under subpargraph (E) or (F) of section 101(b)(1).
        (5) If the citizen parent has not been physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions for a period or periods totaling not less then five years, at least two of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years.
        (A) the child is residing permanently in the United States with citizen, parent, pursuant to a lawful admission for permanent residence, or
        (B) a citizen parent of the citizen parent has been physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions fo a period or periods totaling not less then five years at least two of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years.
        Wish you and all involed in this case best of luck.
