My daughter born in Belgium stateless

Hi Everybody,

Just wondering anybody experienced a similar problem as me:

I am a naturalized US citizen currently residing in Belgium.
My 10 months old daughter is born in Belgium on Dec 8 2013 and she is stateless.
I am living and working in Belgium since July 2011. I live with my Belgium partner. I was married in IL to my US husband( ex) in US and currently divorced in Illinois. ( Divorced before the baby is born but after I conceived her)
When I went to register my baby's birth here in Belgium they told me that I have to keep my ex-husband as the
father of the child and my ex-husbands last-name must be given to my child.. They did not accept the bay's biological father as the father. ( I have enough evidences to prove that my current partner is the biological father , but they did not accept anything); So since they did not accept her father in Belgium, she is not a Belgium citizen.
I went to US embassy to register her birth, but I could not pass my citizenship to her because I traveled every year some where either for work or for vacation. There are some years I was just a few days out of US. So I could not prove by continuous stay of one year in US. So she is not a US citizen either.
Currently she is stateless, I am stuck here.
Anybody have similar experience, any thought on how to solve this?. How can my daughter have some papers so that I can travel with her?
I am here with a lawyer to establish her fathers paternity, but it can take a long time even years!
Any thoughts appreciated.
Thanks
Jincy

File I-130 and when daughter gets immigrant visa move to the US? I know they can issue immigrant visas for stateless persons as well - doesn't go in a passport but on special paper.

Register her as yours only. Father unknown. That you're divorced in the US should not be of any concern to the Belgians.
