I am assuming that the father is the US Citizen husband, or course.
If so, then yes
, the child is a US Citizen. A child born abroad to one U.S. citizen parent and one alien parent acquires U.S. citizenship
at birth under Section 301(g) of the INA provided the U.S. citizen parent was physically present in the United States for five years or more (and I am guessing that the U.S. citizen parent was). The presence of the parent on U.S. soil does not have to be immediately prior to the birth
so it is okay if the father was stationed in Germany before.
As such, the child is a US Citizen. The child's birth should be registered with the US Embassy/Consulate
, and, a Certificate of Citizenship
may be filed for and received by:
N-600 - here
(if the child is back in the USA);
N-600K - here
(if the child is still abroad and shall be for a few months).
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
