You need to provide a little more about your situation. If your daughter got derivative status from your immigration she will obtain

her citizenship when you get yours. You can submit a copy of your naturalization paper (once you get it) with her US passport application

and she will get a US passport... or you can file for a N600... Personally just getting a US passport is better and cheaper.

I assume your daughter has a greencard now, i.e., she is a legal permanent resident, is that correct?

You cannot apply for her N600 before you become a US citizen. You need to get naturalized first.

Are you sending your N400 application now? If yes, hopefully your oath will be before she reaches her 18th birthday.

And what is the status of your husband?

I don't understand your situation either, you are not giving her details.

But if she came here with you and has a green card, and you are eligible to apply for US citizenship and she is under the age of 18 when you receive your citizenship. All you do is add her name to your N-400 and she automatically becomes a US citizen when you do. But without any proof, have to either apply for an N-600 or a US passport, or both to verify her US citizenship.

If she turns 18 before you receive your citizenship, still has a green card, like ours did, she has to maintain her green card for the full five years and file for an N-400 herself.

If she is not here, does not have a green card, you have to petition for her.

I as a USC petitioned for my stepdaughter when she was 14 and at the same time applied for EAD cards for both of them, with that, they were both here legally. But took forever for that AOS to get their conditional green cards. They misplaced her application, but fortunately, she received it 2 1/2 months after her mom. Another two weeks, then we would have to file for her separately for her I-751 like many others here did.

That EAD time does not count for applying for USC, clock doesn't start ticking until they receive that green card, she barely turned 18, questioned the USCIS on this issue due to their mistakes and delays, but the law is the law, so she had to wait an additional two years before applying, civics test and all of that plus another 1,350 miles of driving and 680 bucks. Just because of a couple of days.
