If well under 18 age, your daughter will automatically become a US citizen when you do, no application for her is required. Only noticed of this is on your N-400 form where you list all of your and your spouse children, whether natural or adopted. This also includes your step children, but as the applicant, only your adopted or natural born children will automatically become US citizens if under the age of 18.

But without any proof, you either have to apply for the N-600, an appropriate number because the fee is $600.00. Or apply for a US passport for your children with additional problems by getting permission from their other biological parent if under the age of 16.

Ironically at your oath ceremony, will take away your green card, but not the green cards from your kids. If you kids are well under the age of 16 and you have a real nasty ex that won't give that permission, you would be far better off to apply for the N-600, takes around six months, no civics nor English test, do have an interview, then will trade that green card for a certificate.

Depending on your home country laws, one way to get that permission is to sue your ex for child support payments, this can be expensive, but rather than pay those child support payments, more willing to give that permission you need to get that passport.

If you discuss these issues with the USCIS or the DOS, tell you congress makes these laws, if you know your senator or congressman personally like I do, they know nothing about these agencies, too busy with wars and budgets so they tell me. The key immigration laws we have today date back to 1927, 1986, and 1988, you don't have to know our history to get elected, just have to promise to lower taxes.

Each of us has different circumstances, have to consider what is best for you and for your kids. I only brought one kid here, felt obligated to do the best thing for her, unlike her mom that came here with free choice, she had no choice. Was bitter at first, but now loves it here and thanks me constantly.
