Children Of U.S. Citizens

A child of U.S. citizen may automatically have the right to U.S. citizenship. This is especially important for a child to know if the child is facing deportation or exclusion for a felony or serious crime that could result in deportation or the denial of permanent residence. Even if an alien is facing deportation for an entry into the U.S. without a visa, if the parent is a U.S. citizen, the child may without even knowing it be a U.S. citizen which would resolve the problem of the illegal entry.

To automatically be a U.S. citizen, the regulations require:

  1. At least one parent one parent is a U.S. citizen;
  2. The child is unmarried and not yet 18;
  3. The child is a permanent resident;
  4. The child resides in the U.S. in the legal and physical custody of the U.S. citizen parent.

For children who became 18 before February 27, 2001, to b a U.S. citizen requires:

  1. The other parent was also a U.S> citizen; or
  2. The child’s mother was naturalized and was unmarried to the father; or
  3. The father was deceased;
  4. The parent who was naturalized was divorced or separated and the naturalized parent had legal custody of the child.

If the child is a permanent resident and under 18, and a parent naturalized, the child becomes a U.S. citizen.
