Can my 11 month old get an adjustment to her status if her visa expired? 1 Answers as of February 22, 2011I am a US citizen. My daughter is a British citizen. She entered the US on an ESTA in June. I immediately began applying for her US citizenship papers and have been given the run around by the local UCIS office, had MY citizenship come under question and been told to file at least 3 different types of applications. I have taken her to the local airport Immigration office to get an extension and been told no and that she needs to return to the UK prior to the ESTA expiration. 8 months later and still no US citizenship papers. My questions are: 1.) Is she not a naturalized citizen by birth? 2.) Are we outside the law at this point? 3.) If we are how much trouble are we in and what can we do to fix that? 4.) Are we able to travel to the UK to see her father? He is British in the military.

If you were citizen when you gave birth to her, you may claim citizenship for her. Other questions are hard to answer without other specifics. You are welcome to retain our service to obtain paper work and follow up for you, as opposed to getting a run around by officers who don't necessarily know the laws. We can be contacted if you need to. Good luck!
