What Happens to My Children If I Become a Citizen?

“When someone becomes a citizen, the children may or may not be affected. If the child is under 18, has lawful permanent residence, and has a parent who has become a U.S. citizen, is now automatically, by rule of law, a U.S. citizen. However, if all of the conditions are not met, they do not qualify for automatic citizenship. It is wise to consult an attorney to determine one’s rights in that matter.”
