    Unhappy Canadian Mother, Dual Citizenship Baby

    I'm twenty years old and due April 2nd with my first child. The father is a U.S. citizen. I'm currently residing in Canada because I'm Canadian. I'm not on speaking terms with the father but would like to obtain dual citizenship for the baby after she is born. Can this be done without him? What is required from him? Is there exceptions? I lived in the U.S. for nine years under my fathers E2 Visa [which allows me to stay in the U.S. until age 21] before returning to Canada 6 months ago. I would also like to know if my child will give me any access to the U.S. as far as being able to reside there legally, and possibly work. I'm aware of the rule that my child can sponsor me after age 21 but would like to know about all other options. Last, my mother remarried 3 weeks ago to a U.S. Citizen...is there a way for me to live in the U.S. through my step father.

    If you want a baby, born in Canada, to obtain citizenship through his father, you should be prepared to involve dad in that process. The U.S. isn't going to simply take your word that the father is a U.S. citizen.

    Your baby can't sponsor you for U.S. residency. I'm assuming you turned 18 before your mom married, in which case your stepfather cannot sponsor you.
