  • daughter overstayed, to adjust or not to adjus, that is the question

    hello, ya'll! my daughter who is 11 years-old has overstayed (visa valid til 12/13/02). my husband is a USC by birth and I am a LPR. she was just to visit us since we had a baby, but she decided to stay behind to be with us (she grew up with grand-ma, and was very attached to her, we didn't think she'd want to stay) should we adjust or just wait 'til i too, get my citizenship (2004) then adjust hers??? please advise... thanks

      Childern are exempted to overstay. its depends upon you how you want it, if you want b bit hassele you should get citizenship and claim her citizenship with it. saves you lots of paperwork and wait.

          CORRECT ME OK

          IS IT TRUE.
          You don't have to file N-600 for the child to get citizenship.
          It is automatic.
          He can file for a US passport as soon as he enters.
          He can apply to the INS for a "Certificate of Citizenship", but it is
          not required.

          You only have to file for naturalization if the child was outside of the
          US.
          Since the child is coming to the US as a permanent resident, he will get
          citizenship from his USC parent immediately.

          The child must:

          Have at least one American citizen parent
          Be under 18
          Live in the legal and physical custody of the American citizen parent
          Be admitted as an immigrant for lawful permanent residence.

          According to
          http://www.ins.usdoj.gov/graphics/pu...ts/adopted.htm

          As soon as he meets all of the above requirments, he automatically gets
          citizenship

          I AM NOT A LAWYER
          OK

          THANKS

            Above case we don't know if the one parent who is USC, is biological or not. thats why I wrote it.
            Your post is correct .Certificate of citizenship is not necessary but many case we do required to file out some paper work. its always a good IDea to get certificate of citizenship.

                my daughter is the step-child of my husband. also, he wants to adopt her. so i was thinking that it will save us a lot of time,not to mention money too, if i just wait for my citizenship. either way, she will be under 18 and under 16 if we file for her adoption papers now. please advise. thanks

                  I can only suggest that you shold talk to a lawyer regarding how long it takes to get adoption. I think the process is lengthier then year and lot of paper work involved.
                  you will be getting Citizenship next year ,thats the better way.
                  consult with a lawyer on that, I,m not a lawyer and I don,t know much about adoption process.
