What was the name of the type of naturalization that occurs when your parents were naturalized when you less than 18 y/o again? Sorry, I missed it.

derivation of citizenship. Here's a chart on it: https://www.ilrc.org/acquisition-derivation-quick-reference-charts

There's no list of who is a citizen. If someone is curious whether they might have acquired or derived citizenship from a U.S. citizen parent without knowing it, they should meet with a legal worker to see if they meet the criteria. Here are some charts with the requirements (it changes depending on when they were born): https://www.ilrc.org/acquisition-derivation-quick-reference-charts. If they think they qualify, they would file a form (called N-600) with the government to get a certificate of citizenship to prove it.

What happens in regards to the out of country clause If you are married to someone in the military and they are assigned to a new post in another country... how does that work?

Not to apply for naturalization

There can be exceptions to the continuous residence rule, but one must go to an organization for more specific information

Let's say you've been GC holder for 10 years but have a 6+ month absence in the last five years. Does that mean you can't count that particular year towards the 5, or that you just don't qualify?
Eric Cohen-ILRC
46:44
Continuous residence does not = being in the US every day during the 5 year period. You are allowed absences and even 6 month absences, but it is best to check it out with an organization to check your specific circumstances
Eric Cohen-ILRC
51:07
The type of citizenship for people under 18 is called derivation of citizenship and you must be a green card holder and one or more of your parents must have naturalization while you were under 18

what about multiple daytrips (less than 12 hours) where I don't remember the dates?
Eric Cohen-ILRC
54:14
It should not impact your case and generally one can merely state something like, I took multiple day trips out of the US for 12 hours are less but don't remember the exact dates. Note that on the naturalization application they only ask about trip outside the US for 24 hours or more.

I had a student who just passed her naturalization interview. Her son turned 18 around the same time and he was not able to submit N600 since he was already 18. For the son, what do you recommend? Should he go through the naturalization process with N400 or does he have any other options? Thank you!

If mom naturalization before son turned 18. then son should apply for naturalization on their own. If son turned 18 after mom naturalized, then son might already be a US citizen, depending on some facts. Please see an organization to help you.

Hi Laura, the Naturalization and DACA renews have the waver?

n600 is expensive. Many people just get a passport for their minor children and that serves as proof of citizenship, cheaper.
Eric Cohen-ILRC
01:03:11
oops, I completely messed up the last answer. If mom applied for naturalization after son turned 18 then son needs to apply for naturalization on their own, if before son turned 18 and son was a green card holder, then son might have derived citizenship already
