So, I’m from England and live in the US. I came to the US through a K-1 and I have a N-400 in process.  I have lived with my wife in the US for 10 years, my wife is a US born citizen. We had a child in the US. Can my child get dual citizenship? If so how do you do it?

Not sure on the UK citizenship side of things,  but definitely a yes on the US citizenship. Any child born within the US (barring extremely limited circumstances like those of diplomats and military prisoners and such) is a US citizen. The birth certificate is evidence of this just like anybody else born in the US.

 

If the UK recognizes citizenship via parents who live abroad, then that should be fine as well. Just follow the process to record their citizenship there.

 

The dual citizenship thing is not an issue. The US doesn’t recognize it - all they care about is that somebody is a US citizen or not...not other citizenships they have.
