Depending on how/when you became a US citizen, your children may already be US citizens ... ask the US Consul in Athens.

At that time, you can also ask if your court papers are sufficient.

Then, if you spend at-least 5 years in the US after you were 14, and before they were born ... they are US citizens.


Some consular officers request it and some accept a custody order.
