as far as i know, the BF/father is a US CITIZEN when the child was born for them to register their son for US citizenship.. but if not, they cant.. still need to file a petition for the son too. you can check on http://philippines.usembassy.gov/wwwha003.html it says:

In order for a child to be documented as a U.S. citizen, the U.S. citizen parent(s) must:

1. meet the residence requirements in the U.S. to transmit citizenship (the requirements depend on the date of the child's birth and the legal relationship between the parents at the time of birth),

2. establish a legitimate, legal and biological relationship with their child and

3. have been a US citizen at the time of the child's birth.

hope it helps

i would have to agree with jj1028. the father's citizenship cannot be given retroactive effect to cover the earlier birth of the child.

actual case in point, my husband and two of his older siblings were born prior to my father-in-law acquiring US citizenship. all three of them had to be petitioned to get to the US. while 2 other siblings born after my FIL became a US citizen, automatically became US citizens by virtue of the CRBA.
