My son father brought him up when he was 15 he was given a green card. 

 

My son who is 19 still have his green card. 

When I spoke to his father about our son document he keep saying our son is a citizen he just ain't get time to do his paper work, what paperwork he talking about ?  What I'm I missing here ? 

Is he a citizen or not.

How would we know? Either the paperwork was filed or it wasn’t. There are paperwork requirements to become a citizen unless the child’s parent became a citizen whilst the child was a minor and in the parent’s physical and legal custody. In that scenario the child becomes a citizen automatically when the parent does. Without knowing the specifics, no one can say.

is your son's father born US citizen or naturalized citizen?

Because I thought he was, seeing that he went up as a child and his father was a citizen by that time. 

They are not yet Citizen by that time, your son and his father need to apply for naturalization if they are qualified at this time to become US Citizen since your son is already 19yrs old

Son has only been here 4 years so doesn’t yet qualify for citizenship in his own right (has to be here 5 years before he can apply for that). But if the father naturalized after 3 years and whilst your son was under 18 then he became a citizen at that point.

 

but it’s all moot because the reason you are asking is because you want to be petitioned. Whether he is a citizen or not already is irrelevant as he’s only 19. He cannot petition for you until he’s 21 and a citizen. Both of those have to happen before he can even think of filing for you.

Excus me I'm asking for my son because the job we what's he have to be a citizen there is nothing about me wanted a green card. 

And my son can apply for his citizenship at 4 years being in the US it's on the form I'm looking at it now. 

When my son came up he was a child so and his father was already a citizen.

No matter what the reason is behind your question, I think the father of your son is the best source to ask? Ask him what paperwork he was/is talking about? You have that source available for you and he will be the only one that can really clarify it for you.

If your son is 19 he should be able to talk to his own father to find out if he is a citizen or not. 

 

People have ave a hard time answering you because you don’t give a direct timeline. 

 

And there is no citizenship under any 4 year rule it is either 3 years or 5 years both minus the 90 days before.

 

your son will be under the 5 year rule so if he is not already a citizen then he will be able to apply soon and him (and you) should start looking into that.

If that is the case then it is possible that your son may be a US citizen because:

1. The father was already a US citizen BEFORE the son came to the US.

2. The son was under the age of 18 when he come to the US.

3. Son is a green card holder.

4. Son is residing in the US.

 

To remove any doubts or potential complications,  you should get your son official documentation of citizenship (Certificate of Citizenship).

1. Form N-600

2. US Passport via U. S. Citizenship through Naturalization of a parent (with proof of father's citizenship).
