        Doesn't the child of USC have a claim to US Citizenship by virtue of having USC parent (regardless of place of birth)?

          Child must be 18 years or younger and present in the United State to get his Certificate of Citizen on basis of USC parents.

            At the time of child's birth abroad, was the parent a USC or not?

              Hello,
              thanks to all.
              The parent became USC after birth of the child.
              Since child and parents now live abroad,
              I understand that the only way for the child
              to become USC is to immigrate as LPR.
              Then, once in the US the child immediately
              acquires US citizenship by virtue of the Child
              Act introduced during the Clinton presidency.
              Am I right?
              Thanks
              Stefano

                  I am lazy enough to spend some 10-15 hours to thoroughly read and analyze LIFE CPA, and it's also my understanding that it's very complex law which is being interpreted rather "broadly", sometimes "very liberally", and that much depends on discretion as well as the location where the case is being processed (different offices have different interpretations).

                  Good Luck,
                  IE
