Hi Everyone,

I was born in Brazil and moved to the US when I was 1. My father was (deceased) American and my mother is Brazilian, never naturalized American. I got my first passport then I believe. On my I129F petition I left blank the question on Certificate of Citizenship number because I was not aware I had any. The I-134 Affidavit asks for that number. My mother is 92 and does not know if I have the certificate of citizenship.

So the questions I have are (1) how do I find out if I have one and get a copy and (2) is it possible to not have one (I was born in 1965 in Sao Paolo, Brazil) and if so, will it complete the process?

Any other pertinent information is greatly appreciated.

Thank you all for your input.

If you used your passport as proof of your citizenship, you can do the same for the I-134. No need to list a certificate of citizenship.

Simply attach a statement saying that you have citizenship by birth through one American parent, and that your US passport serves as proof of your citizenship.

Your citizenship was already proven with the I-129F petition using your US passport. You can put 'None' on line b., or put 'US Passport #xxxxxx' or both even, since you have no certificate.
