USCIS issued a policy alert updating the USCIS Policy Manual with guidance to clarify certain special naturalization provisions for children.
In general, the spouse of a U.S. citizen who resides in the United States may be eligible for naturalization based on the marriage under section 319(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Children who have not already acquired U.S. citizenship through a parent may be eligible to naturalize under special provisions within INA 319. Qualified persons include children who obtained lawful permanent resident (LPR) status based on having been battered or subjected to extreme cruelty. In addition, surviving children of deceased U.S. armed forces members who died during a period of honorable service may also qualify. This updated Policy Manual guidance is controlling and supersedes any prior guidance.
This guidance is effective as of 9/26/18. Comments are due by 10/9/18.
