INSTANCES WHERE YOU CAN CLAIM US CITIZENSHIP
- You were born in the United States, but you’ve lived outside the US for most of your life.
- Your direct ancestors were US citizens (parents or grandparents).
- You are or were a minor of naturalized citizens.
- Your parents were citizens at the time of your birth.
- You were adopted by US citizens.
- And other unique circumstances.
Asylum means that you’re able to seek refuge from persecution in another country. Basically, is when you’re protected legally from going back to your home country. Asylum is possible if you have been persecuted because of your nationality, religion, race, political opinion, and a membership with a specific group. When you are granted asylum, you’re actively seeking protection from being deported once you’ve entered the country. In the case of the United States, you’re able to apply for asylum when you’re outside of the country as well aBeing a US citizen has many advantages, the main one being you get to live in the United States. While not perfect (no country or government is), the United States offers many freedoms and advantages over other countries. From great educational opportunities to a robust economy with well-paying jobs, the United States attracts many applicants for citizenship.
The path to citizenship can take many different routes; routes that many aren’t even aware of. Though it logically goes without saying that those born on American soil are automatic U.S. citizens, many people are unaware of other circumstances that make them a legal citizen of this country. At Zohar Law Firm, we have helped thousands understand their status while advocating and supporting their legal rights as citizens of the United States.
Though it seems as if proving or obtaining citizenship is a highly complex issue, there are actually only four ways that one can be recognized as a legal citizen of the United States.
- Those who were born in the U.S. or within one of its territories.
- Those who were born to U.S. citizens.
- Those who obtained their citizenship through the naturalization process.
- Those minors whose parents obtained citizenship through naturalization.
