Q: i have a question regarding thn-600 form
My father is citizen and I am a resident. He was a citizen before I was 18 and I got my green card 12 days after I turned 18.
A: Based on the information you have provided; You are correct , you are a USC because your father was a USC before you turned 18. The N-600 is the proper form to file.
A: Consult with a competent and experienced immigration attorney to review the facts of your case as may be applicable to the citizenship laws, which have changed over the years. As to the most recent law whereby a permanent resident child can acquire citizenship by virtue of his or her parent(s) naturalizing prior to the child's 18th birthday, all qualifying events - including the child being a permanent resident - must occur before the child's 18th birthday. So, although sometimes a child may be under the age of 18 when his or her parent naturalizes, if the child does not acquire permanent resident status until after his or her 18th birthday, that child would not automatically acquire citizenship under the law that I am contemplating for purposes of this response. Again, consult with a competent immigration attorney who can evaluate your facts based on what law(s) may be applicable.
