Immigration Issues/u.s. passport


i was naturalized when my mom became a citizen while i was 15, my mother did not apply for a passport for me though. now that I'm in the military, my supervisors are asking for a passport and i cant apply for one because i don't have a naturalization certificate because my mom was never given one for myself when i was younger. is there any way i can apply for a passport myself? thank you!

Hello Henson:

You should file form N600 (Application for certificate of citizenship) with USCIS; and will receive your citizenship certificate, if you meet all the legal requirements. You can apply for a US passport, upon reception of your citizenship certificate.
