Okay great thank you...
So my father was an Asylee, as his son he brought home to the US as a derivative when I was 18 under asylee status also..now he just became a us citizen and he told me I can automatically acquire citizenship I’m not sure if that’s true because I am 25years old I do have a green card but not eligible for citizenship until December next year based on the 4year date on my greeen card..so just wondering if he is correct
Immigration Lawyer: Judith Ludwic, Immigration Lawyer replied 3 months ago

He is not correct. Under the Child Citizenshp Act of 2000 a child who is a permanent resident and whose parent naturalizes prior to the child's 18th birthday may file the N-600 for a transmission of citizenship if itis filed before the 18th birthday.

I hope that helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I appreciate this opportunity to help you.

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.
