have questions about applying of Passport

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

my wife just had her Naturalization Ceremony (August 21, 2015) after this Ceremony she was told by an USCIS agent that her Naturalization Certificate expires in 7 months. is this true? has anyone else been told this? or did my wife not understand correctly?

unfortunately I could not attend as I am stationed in the Middle East, and my wife is not sure if she understood correctly what the agent said/meant.

so I am wondering if they (USCIS) meant that she had 7 months to apply for a passport? or to make a N-600 application (based on her Natuaralization) for her 15 yr old son?

second question

our/her is son (15 years old right now), so we are now going to apply for US Passports for the both of them (simultaneously) has anyone done this? applied for both passports at the same time

can you tell me what documentation is necessary to send (especially for my wife's minor son proving he is now a US Citizen since he has no actual documents with his name on it stating this)?

who I understand is now also Naturalized US Citizen, (being a minor, that he became a US Citizen at the same time my wife did during her Naturalization Ceremony and without us needing to make the N-600 application for him, if I understand correctly?

Certificates of Naturalization never expire. She can apply for a passport at any time. Her son can also apply for a passport at any time. His proof of citizenship is his mom's Certificate of Naturalization + his green card + proof they were living together. That's right, he is a US citizen without needing to do anything. Not sure about the applying for passports at the same time using same proof thing; but I think people often do that.

I applied for mine first. Then the two kids as they didn't need theirs right away. For the kids they put their application together. Put a not on both applications saying they were a family applying at the same time. That the originals where with Child A and she put copies in Child B's application. She then put both kids in the same envelop, but not paper clicked together.
