    Citizenship Through Parents

    Citizenship Through Parents

    Did you know that children born outside the United States to U.S. citizen parents may acquire U.S. citizenship at birth? This provision, known as "acquisition of citizenship," has specific requirements and conditions that determine eligibility.

    Eligibility Criteria:

    • At Least One U.S. Citizen Parent

    • Physical Presence Requirements: The U.S. citizen parent typically needs to fulfill specific physical presence requirements in the United States before the child's birth.

    • Legal Relationship Between Parents: The legal relationship between the child's parents is a crucial factor. This might entail being born in wedlock or meeting specific legitimacy criteria.


    Upon meeting the eligibility criteria, parents can apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA). This official document serves as evidence of the child's U.S. citizenship and can be used to obtain a U.S. passport. It's crucial for parents to understand the specific requirements and documentation needed to establish their child's U.S. citizenship. Give us a call so we can help you navigate this process and ensure compliance with the relevant regulations.
