Can I call USCIS to check my immigration status? I would like to find out if I’m already a U.S citizen.
This question might be a little odd depending on how you think you got US citizenship.If you applied for naturalization as an adult with N-400, you don’t become a US citizen until you take the oath, not before. Since this requires an action on your part, there is no way that you wouldn’t have known that it happened.If you are born abroad and you believe you may have been a US citizen from birth, it is up to you to obtain evidence that your parent(s) met the requirements under US law to pass US citizenship to you at birth. The US government, including USCIS and the Department of State, generally does not know, and cannot tell you, whether you, born abroad, is a US citizen or not until you try to prove that you are when you apply for evidence of citizenship (e.g. a US passport). Having insufficient evidence to prove your US citizenship doesn’t mean you are not US citizen • maybe you are, legally, based on the facts that you have insufficient evidence to prove, and if you find further evidence, you can go back and prove it.If you were a permanent resident under 18 living in the US with a US citizen parent, you automatically became a US citizen by operation of law. (This can happen in any order, e.g. you and your parents could all be permanent residents, and one parent naturalizes while you are under 18, or if your parent was already a US citizen and then you immigrate to the US with an immigrant visa, etc. Prior to 2022. both parents had to naturalize.) In this case, again, the US government does not generally know that you have become a citizen (you will likely still have a valid green card), until you want to obtain some evidence of citizenship (usually a US passport) when you will need to prove your citizenship with your green card and your parent’s evidence of citizenship when you were under 18.If you are a child of a US citizen residing abroad who didn’t obtain citizenship at birth and your parent applied for US citizenship under INA 322 by using your grandparent’s physical presence in the US, you must have entered the US as a legal nonimmigrant and taken the oath in the US (although for very young children the oath can be waived). You would have also obtained a certificate from this, so chances are if you obtained citizenship via this route you would know it.
