After NOA2 (baby involved)

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi. So we got our NOA2 approved and now we are waiting for NVC to forward to US Embassy, Manila Consulate. I already researched on requirements they might ask for the initial interview, just to make documents easier to collect once the packet arrives. But my other concern is, what do we need to do now so that if ever I pass my interview, our baby can come with me to the USA? She is 4months old. The father is my petitioner and fiance (US citizen) but our daughter was born here (Philippines).

Has anyone experienced the same situation? Any advice on that? I'm afraid that even if ever I get my visa, we might have to stay back longer and WAIT AGAIN til our daughters documents are fixed.. Will it be quick though? Since her dad is a US citizen? I was hoping we start fixing her stuff now while it's "early" and I haven't been scheduled yet for an interview.

TIA to whoever can help!

Rica

After my fiance visited me , one month later we learned that I am pregnant we didn't continue filing K1 petition cause i read someone post here that her visa got denied because she need to file CRBA first.If the CO founds out that your baby is eligible, you need to get his CRBA first and since you said you already got your NOA2 maybe you could also file your baby's CRBA at this point in time before your interview comes up. I applied my baby's CRBA last May 23, 2011 and USEM requires my baby to get a paternity test . And St. Lukes only scheduled us this 29th of June. You should start gathering documents needed for CRBA then you can get an appointment online .

Register the birth with US embassy in Philippines and the baby will get a US passport to travel with. The baby, acquiring citizenship through the dad should not travel with visa.

Are you saying that a child born in the Philippines is a US citizen because the father is Amercian?

Yes, that is correct. They will still need to file the birth with the consulate though so that the baby can get a US passport.

What are the modes of acquiring citizenship?

There are two (2) generally recognized modes of acquiring Philippine citizenship, namely:

1) by birth; and

1) Jus soli (right of soil) which is the legal principle that a person's nationality at birth is determined by the place of birth (ie, the territory of a given state).

2) Jus sanguinis (right of blood) which is the legal principle that, at birth, an individual acquires the nationality of his/her natural parent/s. The Philippines adheres to this principle.

2) by naturalization which is the judicial act of adopting a foreigner and clothing him with the privileges of a native-born citizen. It implies the renunciation of a former nationality and the fact of entrance into a similar relation towards a new body politic. (2 Am.Jur.561, par.188)

A Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) will need to be filed on behalf of the baby. The link provided by dindo and patty shows what needs to be done for that.

First, you're responding to a thread that hasn't received a new post since last June. The OP hasn't even logged on to this forum since January.

Second, The question you replied to was specifically about whether a child born abroad is a US citizen if one of the child's parents is a US citizen. You responded by quoting Philippine citizenship law. It's a foregone conclusion that the child will also be a citizen of the Philippines since the mother is Filipino, and the child is going to be born in the Philippines. I don't think the person who asked the question ever had any doubt the child would be citizen of the Philippines. They wanted to know if the child would also be a citizen of the United States. The answer is yes, the child will be a citizen of the US (as well as the Philippines), but it's eligibility to acquire US citizenship at birth will have to be established by filing a Consular Report of Birth Abroad.
