Proof of Relationship?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My parents just became US citizens and so my sister who is under 18 and has green card also became a citizen right? We want to apply for her passport but we don't have her birth certificate. Is there anything else that can be accepted as a proof of father-daughter relationship?

I think you need the certificate. Have you looked into what it will take to get the birth certificate?

Also, as long as your sister has been admitted as a permanent resident and is under 18, yes she is a citizen per the Child Citizenship Act of 2000. Please see here to determine what she will need. You can also contact the department of state to explain your situation (missing birth certificate) and they will let you know how to deal with this.

Bringing my stepdaughter here required all kinds of proof she was indeed the legal daughter of my wife, not only the birth certificate, but a paper trail with a previous marriage certificate, divorce, and a new marriage certificate due to name changes.

Her birth certificate was expensive due to errors her government made with typo's, we had to go to their corrupted courts to get that corrected, that was a very expensive piece of paper. When I got my hands on it, treated it like it was a million dollar bill.

Kept all of her documents in a folder locked up in my safe, but as part of her 18th birthday present, gave her that file, now its her responsibility to keep those. Well I did withheld all those court papers, didn't want her to know how rotten her biological father was, she can learn that for herself.

So what is your story regarding your sister, didn't her parent keep those important documents? Certainly needed them to bring her here. As a minor, she can't even apply for herself, her parent has to do that for her.
