My husband of 22 years is Maltese citizen in which we have 5 children together which have obtained American citizenship through me as I'm American born , would that make him An American citizen through our children ?
If your husband has obtained lawful permanent residence through you, then he will have to be a lawful permanent resident for three years and remain married to you to apply for naturalization.
The naturalization process requires that he be continuously physically present United States for the required three years, that he have good moral character for those three year, and that he successfully pass a test involving English language, history, civics, and politics. The N400 is the form he must use to apply. Good luck.
He'd have to apply for naturalization. Here are the eligibility requirements: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem...
No. He will not obtain United States citizenship based on your children. If not already a permanent resident he will first need to become a US permanent resident and fulfill the residence and physical presence requirements of either 3 or 5 years among other requirements and file for naturalization.
