Hello my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.

Did the father spend at least 5 years in the US 3 of those years after the age of 14?

If so, did the father make a Consular Report of Birth at the time the child was born?

Is the father still alive?

Was the father ever order by a court to provide child support for your nephew?

I'm sorry it takes so long to respond. As far as I know, the parents are still married so no child support has been issued. I'm trying to get a hold of the father but he won't respond to my calls. I will have to call Panama but that will take a day. He used to work as a guard for the Panama Canal, which I believe was a federal job. I will try and get as much information as I can. Michael

Thank you Michael.

When you reply, tell me if the nephew is still in Panama.

He may be able to apply for his US passport provided the father's name is ***** ***** birth certificate and he has the marriage certificate between the parents.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
