If you were born to U.S. Citizen parents, you may be a U.S. Citizen from birth. You may be a U.S. Citizen whether your parents were married or not. To determine whether you are a U.S. Citizen depends on whether both or just one of your parents are U.S. Citizens, whether they were married at the time of your birth, and whether your parents lived in the United States. The determination of whether you are a U.S. Citizen can be very complicated, and there are very serious consequences to claiming you are a U.S. Citizen of you are not. If one or both of your parents are U.S. Citizens, it is highly recommended you speak with an experienced immigration attorney. Contact Dorsett & Zapata, PLLC for your free consultation.
