N-600, Documents Retained at Field Office?

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to find my original birth certificate, my parents marriage certificate and my Chinese passport but I cannot find them anymore. Thinking back, the field office I visited in New York City may have retained the original copies of both documents until my next visit (I had originally applied for N-400, told me that was wrong, and I reapplied for N-600).

Does anyone know if they do that?

Can I get the documents back so I can use it to apply for a US passport? I have only copies of my Birth Certificate and Parents Marriage Certificate and I am unsure if that is acceptable.

Please help, thank you!

if you need the originals back,

there's a form for that.

I can't remember the form #, but someone else will chime in.

I thought, for the form you want to file, photocopies were acceptable ?


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

I'm in a very peculiar situation. I had applied for the N-400 and submitted original documents during my interview process. It was determined that I was NOT eligible because I was under 18 when my dad had become a US Ctizen making the N-400 form invalid for me, they told me to reapply for the N-600.

From there on, I BELIEVE they retained my original copies (I cannot remember anymore since it's been over a year). I reapplied for the N-400 which is naturalization through parents and it's been 10 months...

I booked a trip to Europe without any passport (no valid Chinese passport or any US Passport) because I thought my citizenship would be done by now. The trip is on November 18th. I recently found out that I can obtain a US Passport via evidence of naturalization through parents, one of which is foreign birth certificate and parents certificate of marriage.

If the original is with USCIS, what can I do?

Does anyone know if US Passport take photocopies of those two items?

Thank you!

you should be ok just with the passport application, actually...

if a parent became a uscitizen whilst you are under 18 and yer still under 18,

just walk In with stuff.
