Where is the child’s mother or who is the child’s legal guardian? Does the person consent to the process?


I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,

Neither are you here to live up to mine.

I don't owe no one no obligation 
So everything is fine, fine

I said, I am that I am I am, I am, I am

Doesn’t sound like CRBA can be used. Have father file two I-130s one for his wife and other for his son. Son will become a citizen after he enters on the immigrant visa.

CRBA = Consular Report of Birth Abroad. Was your father a citizen when he was born? Were your parents married when he was born?

 

https://ru.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/child-family-matters/birth/

 

Quote

A child born outside the United States to a U.S. citizen parent or parents may be eligible for U.S. citizenship if the parent(s) meets the requirements for transmitting U.S. citizenship under the Immigration and Nationality Act.  U.S. citizens eligible to transmit citizenship are required to file for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA).

 

A complete picture of your father/brother/mother’s situation wis necessary to give you the correct/best route. Your brother may already be a US citizen at birth depending on timing and criteria. Read the info in the link.

 Yes, my father is a citizen and my parents married when my brother was born. And my parents married at philippines.

 

My mother wants to get my father's photocopied and notarised passport, W-II and fill in a form (i don't know what kind of form) And she submit in the US Embassy(Philippines) to get a US Passport for my brother, Is it possible? Thank you

if your father was not born in the USA or immigrated after your brother was born, than your brother can not get citizenship until after the I-130 is approved and visa is handed out is my understanding.

My fellow parents are not in good terms, but they are married in the Philippines and before they get married my father is a US Citizen. Now my mother has read thru online that she could get a passport for my brother in the philippine without my father just need a copy and a notarized passport, W-II and fill in a form (i don't know what kind of form) from our father, Is this true?

 

But my dad would like to file an Form I-130 for both of them here. What's more ok to do and fastest? Thank you very much in advance.
