William Yates, "Procedures for Handling Naturalization Applications of Aliens Who Voted Unlawfully or Falsely Represented Themselves as U.S. Citizens by Voting or Registering to Vote"


1. Maria is 27 year old graduate student who retains your firm to assist her with her naturalization application. As you interview Maria, you learn that she was born in Peru on March 20, 1983. She became a permanent resident with her mother and father in 1991. Maria has lived in the U.S. since 1991. She tells you her father naturalized in 1997. What else would you discuss with Maria to determine if she already obtained U.S. citizenship through the Child Citizenship Act?

2. Same facts as above but this time your client Maria was born on March 20, 1980. If her father naturalized in 1997, but her mother did not, is Maria a U.S. citizen? What must she show to qualify?
