Having child abroad

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. So we are in the early stages of filing for CR1 and in the meantime, in september, we are expecting a little girl. My wife is italian (and we are petitioning for her). Does anyone have experience with this? Our daughter should automatically be considered an American, no? I know there is the form at the consulate called "american born abroad" , but is it that simple?

It is relatively simple.... I believe simpler than petitioning for your spouse. Also, this needs to be done as the consulate will NOT issue a visa to a person who has a "claim" to citizenship.


YMMV

Hi, do you actually have experience with this? I dont want to file any sort of petition or anything, I just want to show up at the consulate with the baby, birth certificate, etc, and be given the go ahead to bring her home to America. Isnt that the point of the American born abroad form? I just hope that this will not require any more form sending.... i guess we'll see :whistle:
