Acquisition of Citizenship

Acquisition of Citizenship is defined as children, born outside of the United States, obtain citizenship through U.S. Citizen parents. The two general ways to obtain citizenship through U.S. Citizen birth parents are at the time of birth, or after birth but before the age of 18. The law imposed at the time of the child’s birth determines whether he/she is a citizen at the time of birth.

  • The U.S. Citizen parent has lived in the U.S. for a period of time
