كيف يمكن للفرد أجنبي المولود المقيمين في الولايات المتحدة. أصبحت الولايات المتحدة. مواطن من أي وقت مضى دون تقديم نموذج N - 400, طلب التجنس? بسيط – عن طريق الأم أو الوالدين أن أدى اليمين في الولايات المتحدة كما. المواطنين.
في الغالبية العظمى من الحالات, يجب على مقدم الطلب للحصول على الجنسية أن يكون 18 سنة من العمر, have resided in the U.S. as a lawful permanent resident for 3 أو 5 سنة (depending on whether married to a U.S. مواطن) and demonstrate “حسن الخلق”. لكن, it is often the case that a foreign born living in the U.S. هو الولايات المتحدة. citizen and does not even know it.
أكثر تحديدا, if the individual resides in the U.S. كمقيم دائم مشروعة, and a parent with legal and actual custody over them becomes a U.S. citizen while the individual is under 18 سنة من العمر, that individual automatically becomes a U.S. citizen at the moment his parent is sworn in as a U.S. مواطن. (For cases involving the naturalization of a parent(مع) prior to February 27, 2001 and after Dec. 24, 1952, both parents, if still married, must naturalize prior to the child’s 18th birthday in order for their child to derive US citizenship). If the parents are divorced or “legally separated”, only the parent having legal custody of the child needs to become a U.S. citizen in order to pass on the benefit to the child, ثانية, as long as the child is a lawful permanent resident and he is under 18 years of age at the time. The same rule applies for a child with one deceased parent, and the child resides with the surviving parent who naturalizes before the child’s 18th birthday.
An individual who falls into one of the above categories can obtain proof of their U.S. citizenship in one of two ways. One way is to apply for a Certificate of Naturalization, by way of Form N-600. الأهم, there is no time limit in submitting this application, as the applicant becomes a U.S. citizen by operation of law at the time of their parent(مع)’ التجنس, and not at the time of the approval of the N-600. لذا, an applicant can be well into their adult years and still lay claim to U.S. citizenship and obtain a Certificate of Naturalization – that is, as long as the above conditions are met.
Proof of U.S. citizenship can also be obtained by way of applying for a U.S. passport. الولايات المتحدة. Department of State’s passport office will issue a U.S. passport who can prove their U.S. citizenship in any number of ways: 1) by presenting a U.S. شهادة الميلاد, 2) by presenting their Certificate of Naturalization OR 3) by presenting proof that their parent(مع) naturalized while they were under the age of 18, and that they were lawful permanent residents at that time. ثانية, there is no time limit to laying claim to U.S. citizenship by way of this latter method either, and such an applicant need not obtain a Certificate of Naturalization in order to be considered for a U.S. passport.
It is important to note that the rules outlined above are ones that most often apply to current applicants. لكن, different rules were at play during various periods prior to 1952 when predecessor statutes governed. بالإضافة إلى ذلك, slightly different rules are at play for children born out of wedlock. أخيرا, a completely different set of rules govern a foreign born’s acquisition of U.S. citizenship at birth when one or both of the parents are U.S. citizens at the time of birth.
