.05 Under Age 18 (NA)
 
(04/01/10 –06/30/10)
A lawful noncitizen child under age 18 automatically meets citizenship status for NA, regardless of the following:
 
Date of entry
Date legal resident status is obtained
The number of qualified quarters
 
The lawful noncitizen child, under the age of 18, must meet all other eligibility requirements, in order to be eligible for NA.
 
NOTE Regardless of the noncitizen eligibility of the adult parent, children under the age of 18 are potentially eligible for NA. Children under the age of 18 and legally residing in the United States are eligible for NA when they meet all other eligibility criteria.
 
WARNING
The month after the lawful noncitizen child's 18th birthday they must meet one of the other non-sponsored Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) criteria to continue potential eligibility. (See Lawful Permanent Resident)
