Certificate of Citizenship

Children who are adopted or who are born to a U.S. citizen outside of the United States may automatically qualify for U.S. citizenship.

In order to qualify to obtain a Certificate of Citizenship, the person in question must meet certain requirements.

If you or a loved one has faced problems when trying to obtain proof of citizenship, a skilled and experienced Austin immigration attorney at the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, can help. To speak with a lawyer today about your particular situation, contact our offices by calling 512-323-2333.

Qualification for a Certificate of Citizenship

Children (as well as some adults) who meet certain requirements are eligible to obtain automatic citizenship under the Child Citizenship Act of 2000. These requirements state that the person applying for the certificate must be:

  • Currently under the age of 18, or was under age 18 on or before February 27, 2001
  • A legal permanent resident of the U.S. and currently residing in the U.S
  • In the custody of a parent who is a U.S. citizen

Additionally, if the child is adopted, the adoption process must be fully finalized before he or she is eligible to be granted citizenship.

The process of applying for a certificate of citizenship is fairly straightforward if applicants meet all of the requirements.
