K1 visa and children

Hello,

I looked all over the Internet for answers but couldn't find anything clear, any input would be greatly appreciated.

My fiancé and I are assembling our i129f package, he's the U.S. Citizen petitioner, I'm the beneficiary, from France.

We have a 2 years old daughter, born in France. she has the last name of my fiancé, it's on her birth certificate and passport.

Do we petition for her as well or does the fact that her father is American exempt her from that?

Do we need to establish her American citizenship beforehand?

Has anyone on here done a certificate of birth abroad?

Thank you for any insight!

If the embassy believe your child has a claim to US citizenship then they will not issue her a visa. As stated above, a CRBA would be the way to go, if your fiancé meets the requirements to transmit US citizenship to your daughter.

I am applying for a K1 visa for my fiancee, a k2 visa for her young son, but we also have a daughter, one year old, in common who was born abroad. I separated both paths and basically obtained citizenship for my daughter in the US embassy in Bogota; this was a very simple process, and I kept the K1 and K2 process moving. I recommend you do the same an obtain a CRBA.

Good luck!

Thank you all for your answers! (I posted a thank you post earlier I don't know why it didn't post it!) We did start the crba process. Hopefully it will go okay, although I'm worried that they're going to ask for a dna test...

If the baby is born outside a wedlock and the US citizen is the father, then yes DNA test is very much possible. Best of luck.
