Spring, TX asked in Immigration Law for Texas

Q: Is there a specific US citizenship application form for me to apply for? I am 21 years old.

My father became naturalized in early of 2014, so I was around 15 years of age. My mother however is not a citizen. I am a permanent resident green card holder. I started an application but didn’t want to complete and pay until I had more information.

A: You may already be a citizen. If that is the case you complete the N-600. If you are not a citizen you complete the N-400. Read the requirements for each to determine which application you should complete or consult with an experienced immigration attorney.

A: You are likely a citizen already through your father. You just need to get proof of that, either with a certificate of citizenship or a US passport.
