5 Years old child born in Brazil - US Citizen Father

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I hope I'm posting this in the right area...:)

So here is my doubt, I have an acquaintance that have a child that born in Brazil 5 years ago, he is not married to the mother (he is in the process of getting divorce papers now in US but he is already divorced in Brazil), the child was never reported in an American consulate in Brazil and the father is not sure on how he should proceed to register his son as an American citizen and he wanted to do this before filling for a K-1 for the mother of the child.

I'm just not sure if he should do it separately or if he should do a concurrent filling (if even possible).

The child left the hospital with his father's name already on the birth certificate.

How hard is for him to get his son an American citizen? Anyone with experience in a similar case? Should he file the K-1 before registering the child, or after?

Let me know if I should give you guys any more information.

Thank you all in advance!!!

Hi, thank you for your response...I already looked at CRBA but I wanted to know if he should file for fiance visa before or after...any suggestions? Should he just file for finance visa, include his son on the petition and figure the citizenship for the boy when he is already here? Wouldn't it be easier than filing two separate applications for the boy to come here?

Any thoughts?

Thank you!

Umm, they won't issue K-1 visa until it's determined that the child either qualifies for US citizenship or not. So file for K-1 and go through CRBA - no other way around it.
