You Can’t Deport Me—I’m a Citizen! True Claims to U.S. Citizenship

This 90 minute web seminar was originally presented on March 29, 2011.

Often times we as attorneys try to jump in immediately to fix a problem, but what if there isn’t a problem in the first place? What if your client is a U.S. citizen? This panel will focus on the intricacies in determining whether or not a client has a claim to U.S. citizenship pursuant to the Child Citizenship Act or former law. Additionally, this panel will provide details for filing a certificate of citizenship and obtaining a U.S. Passport.

  • Derivation of Citizenship through the Naturalization or Birth of a Parent Under the Child Citizenship Act and Former Law
  • What if My Client’s Grandparent Was a U.S. Citizen?
  • Filing Procedures for a Certificate of Citizenship with USCIS
  • Evidence and Burden of Proof—Birth Records/Registrations of Birth
  • What if the Child Was Born Out-of-Wedlock?
  • Can One Apply for a U.S. Passport Instead of Filing an N-600?
