Using passport as proof of US spouse's citizenship

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was wondering what other people put in section B13 on the I-130 where it says "Naturalization. Give certificate number and date and place of issuance." when using a passport copy as proof of citizenship? My wife has lost her naturalisation certificate and we can't really afford to get a new one.

Thanks for any help.

I could be wrong about this, but I think I once read that for naturalized citizens, the only real proof of citizenship is the naturalization certificate.

I am naturalized because of my parents adopting me from Guatemala it was a law that came into effect when i was about 14........my passport is the only proof that i needed for the petition ....but i had to copy every single page of my passport for it to be valid proof of being a USA citizen.........I do not have a certificate because they didnt issue them when they decided to make people like me a citizen with out having to file.......

It takes not only $345 but . . . pay attention now . . . 12 to 21 months (!) to get a new Certificate of Naturalization. Therefore, you don't lose it, you just don't.

But since you did what I told you you shouldn't do because you did it before I told you not to do it . . . your passport is all the proof you need that you are a US citizen. It's a class A document, meaning a document from the United States Government, the Department of State, that proves your identity and your citizenship status.

P.S.

Sarah, you have never taken the Oath of Allegiance to the United Sates, thus you have never been issued a Certificate of Naturalization. That's different.

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Okay, thank you. Strictly speaking I didn't lose the certificate and neither did my wife, her parents lost it. So should we just check the "Naturalization" box, but leave the line blank?
