Derivation of Citizenship By Naturalization of One Or Both Parents

Derivation of Citizenship By Naturalization of One Or Both Parents

Children born outside the U.S. who have not acquired citizenship at birth may still derive citizenship when one or both parents naturalize.

Under current law, a child derives citizenship if one parent is a U.S. citizen by birth or naturalization, and the child is under 18, is a lawful permanent resident, and is residing in the U.S. in the legal and physical custody of the U.S. citizen parent. Stepchildren do not qualify under these provisions.
