    Answered . I agree, but more information is needed. The situation is complicated, can prove costly and potentially futile. The Father's certified birth certificate, perhaps even DNA may be required. A competent and costly private investigator may also need to bridge the gap. The exact date of birth may be an issue due to a law made effective on 2/27/2001. What is his birth date?

    This is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.

    Answered . It appears from the facts you have provided that the child may have acquired citizenship at birth, but that will depend upon the father's connection to the United States prior to the child's birth.
