Hello, still there?
JA: The Immigration
Lawyer will need to help you with this.
Customer: My father was born in Panama in 1941 and also became a U.S. citizen when he turned 18. I am his daughter and in my 40's, I want to know if I also have Panamanian citizenship
through my father. I read your response to the other question along these lines. You mentioned that if you're over 18 you must go through the naturalization
process which among other things requires that you live in Panama for five years first. How do you legally live in work in Panama during those first five years?
JA: I've lived in Detroitall of my life.
Customer: Is that relevant?
JA: OK. The Immigration Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: No, I haven't contacted a lawyer yet.
JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Immigration Lawyer can help you best.
Customer: I'm interested in moving to Panama. My father is Panamanian and my grandfather is as well, and still lives in Panama. I lived there when I was a teenager in the 80's. I am now in my 40's. As the child of a Panamanian, I want to know what I have to do to live there legally.
JA: Is there anything else the Immigration Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: That should be enough to start the conversation.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Immigration Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
