My son needs his citizenship

Recommended Posts


I'm dealing with a very difficult situation. My son was born in United Arab Emirates, but I'm an American citizen. His father is from United Arab Emirates and we haven't seen him in years. Basically he abandoned us. We have lived here in the USA since my son was two years old, he's now 11 years old. He's not here legally because they require him to have his original birth certificate and his passport (which his dad took many years ago. 

Since we can't get a hold of his dad, can he still get US citizenship because I'm an American citizen? I'm a single mother working hard to provide for my son and I. I need to get the ball rolling. BTW - his dad is married again and has children and him and I aren't divorced yet. 

Thank you
