Am I already a United States citizen?

It seems like everyone in the world wants to be a United States citizen, and it can be a long and difficult process for some to gain this status. However, it never ceases to surprise us on the occasions when someone comes into our immigration law office asking for help with citizenship and we discover that the individual is already a citizen.

Yes, these individuals tend to be just as surprised as we are -- and overjoyed -- to discover that they're already citizens. It also tends to make our job as immigration attorneys a great deal easier. When this happens, the individual usually falls under one of the following three circumstances:

The person was born on U.S. soil but spent most of his or her life living in another country. This person might incorrectly assume that citizenship status was lost while living in the other country. Especially if the person grew up from a young age in another country, he or she might feel like a "foreigner" in the United States; nevertheless, the prior right to citizenship will not have been lost.

The person has ancestors who were United States citizens. In many cases, if someone has grandparents or parents who were U.S. citizens, the individual is also a citizen by birth.

Many individuals who were minor children when their parents were born may not realize that they became citizens as soon as their parents achieved their citizenship status.

Do you want to find out if you're already a U.S. citizen? Our law firm is available to evaluate your current citizenship status and -- if you're not a citizen -- we can offer you strategies for obtaining the legal status you desire.
