Today, I got a note from Aileen.
Here is what Aileen was asking:
Hi Sir!! Good day to you! I just want to ask how will i apply for a dual citizenship for my baby, i am a filipina and her dad is a u.s citizen, were not married yet but he sign on her birth certificate. where will i go to file for a dual citizenship? thank you
Here is my answer for Aileen:
I am sorry to give you bad news, Aileen, but your child does not automatically qualify to become a US Citizen, even if her Dad is an American. If the father wants your daughter to be a US Citizen, he must go to the US Embassy and apply for her citizenship. If he does not, she cannot become a US Citizen.
The Embassy may require DNA testing to prove the paternity of the child before issuing US Citizenship to the baby.
Good luck to you and your baby, Aileen. I hope that everything works out well for you.
