Form N-600 Law and Legal Definition

Form N-600 is an application for a Certificate of Citizenship. Form N-600 can be filed by any individual claiming to have acquired or derived U.S. citizenship through a U.S. citizen parent. In case of adopted or biological child, under 18 years, qualifying for citizenship under section 320 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, the application must be filed by U.S. citizen parent or legal guardian.

Form N-600 is to be submitted to the local U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) district office or suboffice. It is to be noted that applicants filing N-600s who reside in Maryland must file the application at the Vermont Service Center.
