The process of becoming a naturalized citizen in the United States can
be confusing and time-consuming. In this blog, our
Cleveland immigration attorney aims to answer some of the basic frequently asked questions regarding
Who is born as a US Citizen?
You can be born as US citizen if you are born in the United States or if
you are born from a US citizen. If you were born abroad and both of your
parents are US citizens, then you would be a US citizen. If you were born
to one US citizen abroad, you would be considered a US citizen if your
parent lived in the US at least five years before you are born. You parent
would have to have lived at least two of those five years in the US while
they were over 14. There are exceptions to this rule, so contacting an
experienced Twinsburg immigration lawyer to discuss the specifics of your
case is recommended.
