Resolving Immigration Problems
In An Honest & Responsible Manner

Service members: New law might impact baby’s citizenship rights

The changing facets of immigration in the United States can make it difficult for people to make plans for coming into the country. Recently, it came to light that certain service members and contractors who are stationed overseas and having a baby could be facing some challenges with the baby’s citizenship. Instead of the baby being granted automatic citizenship, the parents will have to apply for it. This is making some individuals uncomfortable; however, it doesn’t mean that the child won’t be able to come into the country.

Service members and government employees who are going to be stationed overseas might be concerned about whether this will apply to them or not. An unnamed Defense Department official says that the policy is going to impact around 100 people per year. It is being said that the rule applies only to a child who is born to a naturalized citizen who hasn’t lived in this country for a pre-specified amount of time.

The policy will go into effect on Oct. 29 of this year. Opponents of the matter quickly noted that people who are stationed overseas have enough to worry about without adding this to their plate. If you are currently overseas and expecting a child who will be born on foreign soil, you should find out if this policy impacts you. If it does, you should be prepared to handle the tasks necessary to be able to bring your baby back home.

Unfortunately, this is only one of the changes that is coming in the immigration area. Keeping on top of everything can be challenging, so make sure that you find out how you are impacted by any changes that are being made.
