Certificate of Citizenship

Basic Requirements:

As outlined in the Child Citizenship Act of 2000, any child may automatically obtain United States citizenship should all the following criteria be met by his or her 18th birthday:

  • Be younger than 18 years of age on or before the 27th of February, 2001;
  • Be in custody of at least one U.S. citizen parent;
  • Already hold U.S. permanent residency (green card holder) and reside in the U.S.; and
  • Have already had a final and full adoption, if adopted

Certificates of citizenship may be obtained by any child who meets these guidelines (or by adults who met these requirements before they were 18 years old) in order to prove his or her citizenship in the United States.

Application Process:

Once the initial application for a certificate of citizenship has been filed, an applicant must visit his or her designated US CIS office, interview, and pick up his or her certificate of citizenship. Should the applicant still be a minor at the time of application, his or her U.S. citizen parent must accompany him or her to the US CIS offices. Contrary to the process of naturalization, applicants are not required to take an English language test, take a Government and History test, or take an oath.

Fees:

When filing in the United States at the U.S. CIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) (please take a moment to read this disclaimer), the immigration attorneys at the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC charge the following in attorneys fees and U.S. CIS filing fees:

  • $1,000 in attorney’s fees for both the principal beneficiary and his/her immediate family
  • $1,760 for the filing fee for the main petition with the US CIS

Experience:

At the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, our Austin immigration attorneys are extensively experienced with the representation of individuals looking to obtain a certificate of citizenship. To learn more, please see a few of our approved cases.
