Hello everyone!

 

I'm currently filling out my daughter's crba to get her American citizenship, I have everything to qualify but I'm finding myself stuck on this on part.

Do I  need to present when I have  been physically living in the states, starting at my own birth? What do I include as not being present, a two week vacation or more so a 1 month abroad or when I actually got a residence card for France? Ex: I would say from birth until his graduation and then the period I have been home longer than a month. Ive pretty much been living in between the states and france for the past 8 years. One year in France and home for summers or Visa renewals. I do have proof of medicap insurance, taxes, work stubs, etc as proof of actively living in the states to prove...

I dont know why this seems so confusing to me so any help is appreciated, thank you very much! 😊😊

 

 

ALSO if anyone has done this for their own child at the Paris consulate, what was the average time it took from start to finish to receive citizenship/passport? ( will be applying for ssn/passport at the same time)

Physical presence - time actually inside the US. So from birth until you left. Then from your return until you left again. And so on and so on.

Any day you spent outside the country counts.

You need to include all arrivals and departures, passports will help with the dates, hopefully you have your old ones. I had the same thing, in the USA until 16, then sporadic trips to Mexico and Canada, until many trips and lots of time spent in the Philippines. I documented it all, I met the 5 year requirement. Good luck!

Thank you for confirming! Can I ask what type of evidence you submitted? Was a hs diploma or transcripts necessary  for example?

I was not traveling for school, I was traveling for work.  I included each date I left and returned to the US. I also included copies of my passport with my work visas and any other visas from traveling. That is what i was answering, yes document each time you entered and returned home. You won't need anything from school.
