I got it for my first kid. It was hard we didn't know exactly what to do, the fist interview we only had paperwork (Ours and the baby's)and it was not enough... for the second one we turned in evidence like pictures, cards, e-mails whatever we had to show that we were in a relationship by the time I got pregnant. They also ask you for the doctor's records and sonograms.

That second interview the officer said that she was not convinced that the USC was the father of our kid and asked for a DNA test.

We made an appointment to talk to a supervisor and he was very nice, we showed all evidence and we got our kid's birth certificate and passport.

You won't have no problem getting it, just if worse come to worse you'll get a DNA test done at the place they tell you to do.

I hope this helps you and good luck with your paperwork :)

it should be little to no issue since the mother is the USC...the issue becomes when the mother is not the USC...that is when they almost demand DNA testing and there is more evidence needed. The paperwork for CRBA still needs to be filed with the local embassy though.

You should not have a problem at all getting citizenship for a child where one of the parents is a US citizen. If the US citizen is the father, they must acknowledge the birth of the child, and it helps to be on the birth certificate. You need to make an appointment with the US consulate of whatever country where the child was born to report the birth aboard. Also the mother will need to go to the consulate if they are not the US citizen. The US citizen must prove that they were in the country for a particular period of there life, I am not sure for when, my husband took his high school transcript and that worked. If the US citizen is the mother, then you will not have any issues.

Also a good thing to remember that if a child is entitled to US Citizenship then they can not travel to the USA with out a USA Passport.

My daughter is a US Citizen, she was born in England, I am from New Zealand and my husband is from America. We had a lovely day out at the London Consulate, which wasn't really a bad process. But she has both American and New Zealand Citizenship without any issues. Oh and at the time of her birth we weren't married.
