I'm sorry. I'm not sure why you could not see my answer.

The answer is no. Unfortunately your grandchildren are not automatic US citizens because your daughter did not live in the US at least 2 years after age 14.

But there is good news! They can get US citizenship if your daughter petitions for their green cards first and they live in the US. As soon as they live in the US with a green card, even one day, then they will be automatic US citizens.

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you.

Please kindly click "Finish by RATING" and choose a rating from the STARS ★★★★★. The question will NOT finish or close after you click and rate me. DON'T WORRY. It will stay OPEN after you rate me and I can continue to answer your follow up questions at no additional charge, if you have any.

The stars are very important. If you don't RATE , I receive zero credit for my time with you. Hopefully you can rate me 3 stars or more. 5 stars rating is the best!

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.
