👧USCIS Removes Barriers to U.S. Citizenship for Children Born Abroad Through Assisted Reproductive Technology to Surrogate Moms.
📑USCIS announced updated policy guidance affecting children born outside of the United States and the determination of whether children born through assisted reproductive technology (ART) are considered to have been born «in wedlock».
👪This policy update will allow a non-genetic, non-gestational legal parent of a child to transmit U.S. citizenship to the child if the parent is married to the child’s genetic or gestational parent at the time of the child’s birth, and the relevant jurisdiction recognizes both parents as the child’s legal parents.
📋«USCIS is taking a crucial step towards ensuring fair access and support for all families and their loved ones», said the new USCIS Director Ur M. Jaddou. «We are committed to removing unnecessary barriers promoting policies for all people as they embark on their journey to citizenship and beyond».
