Children born far away from Georgia in lands beyond the borders of the United States often become U.S. citizens automatically under certain conditions. Typically, child citizenship applies to those under the age of 18 who have at least one parent who is a citizen of the United States. Particular regulations apply for children who are adopted, rather than born into families.
Families often face various legal challenges regarding child citizenship or other situations associated with immigration. Many are familiar with the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The current administration implemented DACA in 2012 to help children who were brought to the United States before reaching age 15 avoid deportation and upgrade their legal statuses.
Depending on a family's individual circumstances, obstacles may arise that cause legal difficulties as they seek changes in status or apply for citizenship. Taylor Lee & Associates LLC is often able to help families minimize stress when collecting documents and records or filling out applications to legally update their situations. Often, experienced legal guidance can help immigrant families avoid having their applications rejected because of being filled out incorrectly.
