Hello VJ Family,

My child was given an IR2 status by uscis. how is this status (IR2) removed when the child comes to the USA.

Well you are married to the NATURAL parent of this child for 2 or less years correct.? IF yes - the spouse is required to file conditions and so you/he will file to remove conditions and the child as well. Their case is cased on the bond.

but if married for more than two years, no conditions to be removed, yeah? the child automatically acquire citizenship upon entry to the US, right?

Hello VJ Family,

My child was given an IR2 status by uscis. how is this status (IR2) removed when the child comes to the USA.

The child would be protected by Child Citizenship Act of 2000 that would allow the child to become eligible for Citizenship it seems.

To be eligible, a child must meet the definition of “child” for naturalization purposes under immigration and must also meet the following requirements:

• The child has at least one United States citizen parent (by birth or naturalization);

• The child is under 18 years of age;

• The child is currently residing permanently in the United States in the legal physical custody of the United States citizen parent;

• The child has been admitted to the United States as a LPR or has been adjusted to this status;

*** But I'm not sure if this would even APPLY in this case I hope someone else WILL COME ALONG... I'm not certain and if i'm wrong i stand corrct

I believe the Child Citizenship Act of 2000 applies to children that enter the US with IR3 or IR4 visas. IR2 will be eligible for citizenship at the same time as the natural parent.

Hello VJ Family,

IR2 is the appropriate status for a child of an IR1 visa holder. Unless the child QUALIFIES for US Citizenship upon arrival, there's nothing to "remove". If the child would be entitled to US Citizenship immediately upon arrival, then the US Citizen parent files for it and it will be granted.

Sounds like this is a step-child of a US Citizen.

IR2 visas are issued to children who DO qualify and DO NOT qualify for citizenship upon entry to the USA. Those who qualify receive citizenship automatically but if they want a certificate of citizenship, they file an N600. Those who don't qualify, can file an N400 when they become eligible, usually in five years.

Yep they qualify the same time as the natural parent which is technically 3 years, being married to a USC.

ok i called the USCIS and the person I spoke with asked me a few questions. and based on the information i gave her, she said that both my minor children derived citizen because i have citizenship by naturalization. she said i could either apply for their US passport or file for the N-600. but she recommended to applying the passport because it serves as proof of citizenship and as travel documents. i do agree with her for the sole reason that applying for a passport is 500% cheaper than filing the N-600.

How nice so it turned out I was correct. Doubted the information i provided as others started to join. BUT I dont think that it would be possble to Apply for the US passport first it's not possible. Why? because she would have had no proof of US citizenship.. she she has no choice BUT to file with USCIS first after the child enters the usa,

No, she can simply apply for a passport. There's no need for a citizenship certificate. USCIS will verify her citizenship status in the process of obtaining her passport. USCIS was right on this one.

The 'apply for USA Passport' 'tree' actually works, without filing that other paperwork.

Usually.

Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.
