A naturalized U.S. Citizen has passed US citizenship on to her 13 year old daughter. Last year the mother applied for and received a US passport for her now 14 yr old daughter. The process was smooth and without problems or complication.
Now the mother is being told that she must past over $1000 to apply for proof of the child's UScitizenship, by getting the certificate.
She's been told that when her daughter turns 18 or if she needs to renew the passport, she will have to present that certificate, in order to prove her Us citizenship - AND, the daughter will have to take the citizenship test.
Is ANY of this true?
There will come a time that she needs her certificate of citizenship and it takes almost a full year to get it. So it's a good idea to order it now.
