Q&A: Am I a US citizen if my mother was naturalized before I was 18 years old? (7/1/11)


Question: My mother naturalized before I was 18yr old and I have my green card, am I automatically a citizen? Or do my mother and father have to be naturalized for me to automatically get citizenship?

Answer:  If you were permanent resident at that time, you would be a US citizen without filing anything.
