The Ultimate Guide To The N 600 Application For Certificate Of Citizenship

If you were born outside of the United States to a U.S. citizen parent, or if your parents were permanent residents (green card holders) who became U.S. citizens, you may have become a U.S. citizen automatically, but you might not have any documents that show this. At some point though, you may need to be able to prove your U.S. citizenship, perhaps to obtain Social Security benefits, financial aid, or a driver’s license. A Certificate of Citizenship can serve as that proof and allow you to access these other government services and benefits.

Priority Dates

The priority date determines your place in line/the queue. The priority date, according to the USCIS, is normally that date when the relative or employer of the applicant files the immigrant’s visa petition with the USCIS. You should be able to locate the priority date on the Notice of Action (Form I-797) which was filed on behalf of the applicant. The USCIS officer should verify the priority date “by reviewing the actual immigrant petition or permanent labor certification application.”

Unfortunately, like border and interior enforcement, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and the immigration courts, TPS has also been in focus during the four years of the Trump administration, putting the TPS recipients at risk of losing their status. However, besides the possibility of having a friendlier government to deal with, immigrants, including TPS recipients have been hearing some good news lately.
