Hello everyone,

Quick and hopefully simple question......

I am a U.S. citizen and am expecting a baby with my fiance.She lives in the Philippines. Due to financial reasons we had to put off our K-1 petition.

Unfortunatly my fiance and will not have aquired our K-1 visa prior to our baby being born. I will be present at the birth . My concern is with the child aquiring U.S. citizenship. I've been doing the homework but havent found the answers to my questions so bringing it to you all....

1) Can the CRBA be applied for pre-birth or is there some other form required pre-birth?

2) Did I understand correctly that a U.S. birth certificate and passport can or will be issued along with the CRBA?

The child must be born before applying for a CRBA.

You can apply for a US passport (a US birth certificate will not be ever granted, that is the point of the CRBA) at the same time.

I agree with transborderwife... you will likely need to be present for the CRBA especially because you are not married.
