Consular Report of Birth Abroad

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Fellow members

I filed my I 130 for my wife when I was a permanent resident and my case is still pending. I just got a notice on 03/24/15 that my case has been transferred to another office for processing. I had a child before becoming a citizen and I want to file I 130 for my child again. What is confusing me now is; do I have to add form FS 240(Consular Report of Birth Abroad) to my child's petition since I wasn't a citizen yet when I had the child? I really need a clarification on this. Thanks

Your child does not qualify for CRBA. CRBA requirement at least 1 parent must be a US Citizen upon birth. The proper way is you need to file for I-130 once he arrived at the US, your child automatically become a US Citizen after you applied for a US passport to processing center. Just show your child visa. Thats what i did to my son.

Check your wording its misleading.

Hi,

You do not file a CRBA. A CRBA is to report the birth of a US citizen. Your child is not a USC, so no CRBA.
