Q: What form does my 17 year old needs to fill out to become a US citizen. Her mom and I recently became citizens (N600)?
I am 51 year-old male with 2 daughters and a spouse. My spouse, I and our older daughter (22) recently became Unites States citizen (N-600). My younger child still holds a green card. She is 17 years old (born in 2004). What form do we need to fill out next for her to become a US citizen.
Also, does she qualify for a fee waiver if she is receiving medical assistance (Medicaid)? She is the only one in our household who receives medical assistance. Can she fill out her own fee waiver form or it requires a parent to fill it out for her?
MAIN QUESTION - Is it acceptable by USCIS if she fills out all of her forms on her own? Are parents required to fill her forms?
A child may derive U.S. citizenship before her 18th Birthday, where her biological parent naturalizes. If she seems to have derived U.S. citizenship, she is required to file form N-600. If not, then she must file form N-400 after she turns 18 years old. She can try to file for a fee waiver, but U.S.C.I.S. must decide whether she qualifies for a fee waiver based upon the request.
The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
A: A parent has to sign the forms for your 17 year old daughter. Proof of the fact that she is medicaid is required. You can submit a waiver request and wait for approval. You also can sign and submit the N600 for the 17 year old as she now has US citizenship because of your naturalization.
