Hello,

I became a citizen 1 month ago.

I got a passport for my 13-year-old daughter. I would like to get a citizen certificate for her.

First, Do I need to open a new online USCIS account for her,
Second, for evidence Do I have to send them my naturalization certificate. Can I sent a copy of it?

Thank yo so much

Yes, she will need an online account. If you apply online, you can just upload copies of what you have without physically sending anything. (I have done this myself so I know it works!) You can also upload a copy of her passport. My daughter’s application got approved in less than 3 months with both these docs uploaded. If your daughter is 14 by the time her certificate is issued, she will be asked to say the oath of allegiance at a uscis office when she collects it.

I have get my Certificate of Citizenship yesterday, how can I apply for my minor son for his passport? And which form do I need to fill up? N600? Or N600K? I was trying to fill form N600 online through my USCIS account, but when I review it before submitting it gives me two errors: wrong date of birth ( shows mine) and same thing with an A#. Do I need to apply for my son’s Certificate of Citizenship from a new USCIS account for him?

The same evidence of US citizenship that can be used to apply for a Certificate of Citizenship can also be used to apply for a US passport directly. In the case of a child who automatically became a US citizen by being a US permanent resident under 18 living in the US with a US citizen parent, the evidence would consist of the parent's proof of US citizenship, the child's green card or proof of permanent residency, and proof that the child was living in the US in the custody of the parent.

What exactly is the situation for you and your daughter. Is she living in the US as a permanent resident? Or living abroad? Were you a citizen when she was born? Did you naturalize?

I was naturalised two days ago, my son lives with me at US. He is 10 years old.
Does he have a green card? Are you married to his biological father and if not do you have legal (sole or joint) custody of him? These two factors are also necessary for him to get a passport/file n600. Please see post #7 again which details what evidence you need.
