You might be a US citizen from birth, based on your father's US citizenship. To find out for sure, we would need to know your own date of birth, and information regarding your father's residence history during the period before you were born. The answers to those questions will help determine whether or not you obtained US citizenship at birth. I suggest that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney to get this sorted out.

What is the difference between I-864 form and I-134 form?
I believe you recently asked another question about this topic. As we stated in response to your other question, DV lottery winners do not need any showing of financial support using the I-864 or I-134 forms. Bes wishes.See question
My wife has won DV Lottery 2018, and I am included in her application. Am I allowed to be her sponsor and fill out I-134 form? Please advise as she's getting ready for interview in Luanda, Angola. Thanks Sebastian
Persons applying with the DV lottery do not need any affidavit of financial support. So, there is no need for an I-134. You would not qualify as a financial sponsor, because generally, sponsors must be either US citizens or permanent residents. Best wishes.See question
Hi , I am American , live outside USA with my family , husband and 2 childrens . Can I get them a tourist visa, then apply for immigration from inside USA?
If your husband enters with the tourist visa, having the intent of remaining in the US to apply for permanent resident status, then he would be violating US immigration law. I suggest that you and your husband consult with an experienced immigration attorney regarding this situation. Best wishes.See question

If you are a U.S. citizen, then it is likely that your child will be a U.S. citizen at birth. If that is the case, then your child will not need a visa to enter the U.S. Your child would need to get a Consular Report of Birth Abroad and a U.S. passport. Best wishes.See question
Im Mexican and my wife is French and we got married in Mexico, so is there any way or is it needed to get a approval of marriage from Mexico to be valid for the USA immigration.
If the marriage is considered to be legally valid in Mexico, then U.S. immigration officials will legally recognize the marriage, so long as neither of you is married to two persons at the same time.See question
