Can I get U.S. Citizenship through my mother?
Find answers to your legal question.





Can I get U.S. Citizenship through my mother?

I know if you're under 18, you can get it right away. However, I read that if you were under 18 when your mother became a citizen, you can still get it from her even if you passed the 18 year limit. I was 16 when my mom became a citizen. I'm 19 now. Can I get citizenship through her? Also, are there any benefits in getting it from her anyway? I speak fluent English and have no problem taking the test or anything. Is it cheaper or more convenient to apply as her child vs. just doing it as an individual? Thanks.

If you were under 18 and living in the U.S. in the same household as your mother when she became a U.S. citizen, and you were a permanent resident (green card) on the day that she naturalized................surprise. You're a U.S. citizen and you have been since the day your mother became one. On or after Feb 27, 2001 that is. If she became a citizen before that date, both parents would need to be U.S. If you want to apply for proof, use form N-600 or apply for a passport. Doing both applications would be very wise if you can afford to.
