Here is my scenario, am I a citizen or not?: BOTH of my parents became naturalized citizens this past August. We have sent in the paperwork and the fee for me to become a citizen based on my parent's current status. I have been waiting ever since...................... Actually there were 2 updates: 1. I received a letter a few weeks later(mid September) informing me that they have received my paperwork. 2. My sister had to stop by the immigration office in Charleston, SC a few weeks ago (Thanksgiving break) and asked about my status. They said they somehow mishandled my paperwork and corrected it but I was still in the process. Also, I am 16. On USAFA SS application I put yes because it asked whether I was going to be a citizen by the first week of SS. My parents have friends in the same situation who's children received their citizenship about a month or two later I posted in this forum because it seems to be the most active.
