Originally I was an Iraqi citizen and I was born in

Customer Question
Originally I was an...

Originally I was an Iraqi citizen and I was born in Bradford/UK, because of former rules in Iraq I was forced by the government to change my place of birth to Baghdad/Iraq. When I moved to the United States I had to follow my Iraqi passport so in the USCIS system my place of birth is Baghdad/Iraq, at that time I did not have a proof saying otherwise. I became a US citizen on March. I also was able to get a copy of my birth certificate from England and now I want to change the place of birth with USCIS but I can not find the proper form.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you filed any paperwork with the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) yet?

Which paper work?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No

This will not be easy. You will need a state court to declare that it is your correct birth certificate. This may open a can of worms with USCIS for providing the wrong place all these years. I suggest that you make an appointment at your local USCIS office first and speak to an officer about doing so and what the local requirements would be. https://www.uscis.gov/news/uscis-issues-new-policy-issuing-certificates-citizenship-changed-dates-birth-and-names
