Becoming an American citizen is a dream for millions of people around the world and many right here in our country. Unfortunately, the process is incredibly complex, and while you are trying to navigate it, you will have many questions. Below, our Chicago immigration lawyer outlines some of the most frequently asked questions and the answers to them.
If you cannot obtain a document you need for your application, you can include an explanation of why you cannot retrieve it and provide more supporting documents for your eligibility. Documents you may need include school records, baptismal certificates, and census records. You can also include affidavits from people with personal knowledge of how you became a citizen of the United States, such as the naturalization of your parents.
If you submitted Form N 600, or the Application for Certificate of Citizenship, you can visit the USCIS website and check the status of your case using the confirmation letter they sent you. The letter will include a receipt number you can use to check the status of your case. If you have not received confirmation from the USCIS and many months have passed, you may have to contact the USCIS to confirm they received it, obtain your receipt number, and ensure they have your correct address on file.
Forms N 400 and N 600 both concern becoming a citizen of the United States. Form N 400 is used by lawful permanent residents in the country who wish to become U.S. citizens. On the other hand, N 600 is used by individuals who have acquired citizenship from their parents and who require a U.S. Citizenship Certificate.
You may still be able to file Form N 600 if one of your parents passed away. This is possible if you automatically become a citizen at or after birth. However, if you were not a citizen before your parent passed away, using Form N 600 may not be possible. Instead, you may have to qualify under the Immigration and Nationality Act.
If your stepparent is an American citizen, but your biological parent is not, you cannot submit Form N 600. On the other hand, if your stepparent legally adopts you, it may be possible to use Form N 600.
