So you should be fine. Please let me know if you have additional questions and please do not forget to rate my service to you (not the state of the law) as that is the only way that I can get credit for my assistance to you. Even after you rate the service, I can still answer additional questions for you without additional charge. If you do rate me positively, a bonus is always appreciated. If you would like to request me in the future, just go to http://www.justanswer.com/law/expert-guillermosenmartin/. Thank you!
Thanks for your quick reply. Still, if I have to appear in front of a Spanish official and I'm asked to check the box that "I renounce" and take and oath. Am I understanding correctly that they cannot go to the US Embassy and finalize that renouncing of citizenship on my behalf. I read the information you provided on the links, but I just want to make sure there aren't any lose ends, so it cannot backfire in any way.
The question about being able to claim back my citizenship if I lost it was unanswered. Is it because unless I appear in person at a US Embassy or consulate, there is no way I can lose it. Thanks again.
You would have to take the additional steps I provided in that link in order to truly renounce your U.S. Citizenship. The U.S. won't take away your U.S. Citizenship just because you check a box on a foreign form.
