Consular Reporting of Birth Abroad for Child of Recently Naturalized Citizen

Hi, would appreciate if anyone has any insight on this question.

One of the eligibility requirements listed on the US Embassy websites for Consular Reporting of Birth Abroad (CRBA)states among other things:

A child is born abroad to a U.S. citizen father(ME) and a non-U.S. citizen mother, and the parents were not married at the time of the birth: The child may qualify for citizenship if the father was present in the United States for at least five years.....,

I became a citizen a year ago but had been a LPR and physically living in the U.S. for 6 years prior. My child will be born soon overseas and I plan to do a CRBA. However, the stipulation above raises questions in my mind as to whether one would have had to be a citizen for those five years of residency prior to the birth or would it be sufficient as is my case to CURRENTLY be a US citizen who was physically and legally a resident(LPR) in the US for that required 5 year period.

Thanks in advance for all the help...

Yes ! you are eligible to report birth of your child abroad. I reported birth of my daughter in Doha Qatar and my wife was US citizen just for 5 months at that time. Only requirement is 5 years of physical presence(either as LPR or citizen)two years of which must have occurred after the age of fourteen.

Collect all the evidence of your physical presence and you will be fine.

Cheers :)

Thank you very much for that answer. I pretty much already have all my proof of residency documents for the last few years set aside since it was needed for my citizenship application last year so that part will be easy too...

Thanks again!!!
