Our US citizenship services

Many people who were born outside the United States, and who have never visited the country, may be US citizens through an ancestral connection.

We offer a systematic evaluation process that can establish if you have US citizenship or if you can easily obtain it. Following our free initial assessment, we can prepare a “Status Trace” that analyses your family history and whether you can claim US citizenship.

Our Status Trace will state the legal basis of the claim to US citizenship with detailed reference to the relevant legislation. It can also be used to support an application for a US passport and explains the circumstances under which US citizenship can be passed on to children.

Our other services include: Application for official recognition of existing US citizenship,

  • Application for registration of a birth of a US citizen born outside the United States and its territories,
  • Application for recovery of a US citizenship which has been lost,
  • Review failed application for any of the above,
  • Review possibilities for passing US citizenship to a family member,

Who is eligible for United States citizenship

You may have or be eligible for US citizenship if:

  • you were born in the United States or a territory of the US
  • you were born to or adopted by a US citizen parent
  • you were granted US citizenship by naturalization
  • you were married to a US citizen husband
  • your birth was registered in the US (such as through a US consulate)

In certain circumstances you may also be eligible for US citizen ship if your grandparent was born or naturalized in the United States. In these cases it may be necessary for you or your parent to live in the United States before a particular date is reached.
There have been many changes to US citizenship law since 1920 and it is often hard to predict what your claim is without our Status Trace. The validity of a marriage in US law can also be a complex factor. Another complex situation is a person born to parents who were unmarried at the date of birth.
There have also been many laws causing automatic loss of US citizenship, which have changed over time and remain relevant to an evaluation of citizenship today.
