Acquired and Derivative Citizenship

  • Acquired Citizenship refers to citizenship granted to the children of a U.S. citizen who were born in a foreign country.
  • Derivative Citizenship refers to the process of becoming a U.S. citizen if your parents become U.S. citizens, or if U.S. citizens become your parents through adoption.
  • There are a variety of residency requirements for the citizen parent. These residency requirements become more complicated where children born outside of wedlock are concerned.
