How to Obtain Citizenship Through Parents

Choose Trusted Family-Based Immigration Lawyers in Virginia

Obtaining U.S. citizenship through your parents is one of the surest methods of immigrating to the United States. However, there are several different situations that can be present that make the process difficult and confusing. There are various requirements and forms of proof of the parental relationship that must be submitted to the immigration authorities. If both parents were U.S. citizens at the time of birth, or if the parents were married at the time of birth and at least one parent lived in the U.S. or its territories prior to the birth, the process of obtaining a permanent residence status or citizenship is relatively straightforward. However, when a child is born outside of the U.S. to U.S. citizen parent(s), the process can be more complicated, with more extensive requirements in the evidence submitted and other requirements to meet.
