Citizenship Questions

Families who adopt internationally often have many questions about citizenship.  America World’s ACT program was pleased to have Karen Law, immigration attorney, recently present a webinar about Citizenship and Re-Adoption.  You can see this 90-minute webinar at this link:  ACT Training.   

Furthermore, USCIS recently made updates to the webpage U.S. Citizenship for an Adopted Child, which now specifically, explains what date will appear on the Certificate of Citizenship reflecting the date of citizenship, highlights filing options for adopted children of U.S. military members or U.S. government employees, clarifies that USCIS can only mail Certificates of Citizenship to USCIS field offices abroad for members and dependents of the U.S. military, and includes a new section discussing the adjudication of the Form N-600K for children who were previously issued a U.S. passport. There is also a new drop-down section Children Who Already Have a U.S. Passport.  This information is important for families residing abroad who are considering filing both a Form N-600K and a U.S. passport application.
